The Functional Bump

Hello! Thank you so much for stopping by. If you are a strong, empowered female - you are in the right place! The mission behind The Functional Bump is to lead women to move, think, and breathe throughout their preconception, pregnancy, and postpartum journeys to be stronger and more functional than they ever have been before. To be functional means to move through daily life effectively, reducing wear and tear and imbalances in the body, therefore reducing injury and pain in the future. The Functional Bump provides coaching, mentorship, and industry knowledge in all things preconception, pregnancy, and postpartum exercise, nutrition, and mindfulness.

Amanda Fay, Founder, owner, MAVEN OF MOVEMENT

Hello! My name is Amanda Fay and I am a Pre and Postnatal Corrective Exercise and Diastasis Specialist and the founder and co-owner of The Functional Bump! My personal story started in 2013 when I met my husband and we realized we wanted kids. I believe the moment you know you want children of your own, start preparing your body - and being a super planner and all, I set out to do just that. Lots of research later, especially after seeing the documentary, "The Business of Being Born", I knew I needed to work with the pre and postnatal population.I believe holistic pre and postnatal care can help bring about future generations of vibrant health that will help lead the world. My specialties include corrective exercise, non invasive diastasis protocols, fertility awareness, and group fitness.

The most rewarding parts of my job is empowering other women to think differently and seeing others meet new friends during my group fitness classes! Can’t wait to meet you! Contact: amanda@thefunctionalbump.com

Kieran Doucette - Owner, HEAD Coach

Hey there! I’m Kieran Doucette, I am a DONA trained Birth Doula, Certified HypnoBirthing Practitioner, Pre + Postnatal Corrective Exercise Specialist and co-owner of The Functional Bump. My passion for working with soon-to-be and new mama’s began when my friends started having babies of their own.  I loved watching their journeys, hearing their stories and seeing them grow their families. And once I began my family is when I decided to take steps to work in this space.  I spent time doing research on the history of birth in our country to understand where we’ve been and where we are headed and took several trainings to gather the knowledge to support my desire to strengthen women.

I enjoy all parts of what I do, but absolutely LOVE building women’s strength and confidence and a favorite way for me to do that is through teaching pre + postnatal fitness.  Preparing women to labor and deliver babies and helping them to sustain and build strength back after birth is such a privilege to me. It really allows me to be part of the journey for the long term – which I treasure!  Teaching group fitness is so exciting for me because the energy from soon-to-be and new mama’s is infectious.

I live in Canterbury, NH with my husband, Derek, our two children, Louie and Lennon, where we enjoy the outdoors, raising chickens, and lots of family time!  I look forward to working with you!

Antonia Moehlenkamp - Head Coach

Hi, my name is Antonia Moehlenkamp, I’m a mom of two and I’m originally from Germany, where I graduated from Chemnitz Technical University with a B.S. in Sport majoring in Prevention, Rehabilitation, and Fitness Sports.  I am a certified Pre and Postnatal Corrective Exercise Specialist, Nutrition Coach, Functional Trainer, Kinesio Tape Therapist, and Head Coach for The Functional Bump.

Before I moved to the US, I worked for two years as a Sports Therapist, helping people become pain free without surgery but with the right exercises. When I became pregnant, it made me sad to hear so many wrong myths about working out during pregnancy. So, I decided to take the opportunity to get my certification as a Pre and Postnatal Corrective Exercise Specialist. I want to motivate women to work out during pregnancy and take advantage of all the benefits of working out! I love to workout with others, show exercise adjustments, meet new people, make friends and have fun together.
