Hey mama! Looking for a safe space to land while you’re
navigating “all the things” on returning to sport postpartum?
Like myself, I bet you have spent hours, going down rabbit holes trying to learn:
- How do I take care of my body after birth?
- How do I best prepare my body to return to running or exercise?
- How do I sleep, rest, or even think of exercising while caring for my new little one?
- What movements or exercises can I do that won’t hurt my belly or pelvic floor as I am healing?
I see you and I have this covered for you mama.
My clients and I have done it all…
- Read all the books, the mommy and postpartum blogs
- Signed up for emails and online programs from various postpartum experts
- Lurked on social media…and more.
But what I know from my own experience with 5 kids & my clients is that mamas can LEARN to handle whatever is thrown at them. But first, they find confidence and power for each part of the process. This confidence helps them uncover unconditional joy and calm through the adventure of postpartum recovery, even years after having their babe(s).
What if you knew you could be confident in the uncertainty of motherhood by using skill and tools in your own power to bring a healthy recovery and return to exercise OR (let’s face it) life!?
This is where I come in! I have helped mamas discover that the process of being a mama does not have to be scary.
This is why I team up with mamas so they have guidance, solutions, and support in the unknown adventures of motherhood and find joy and calmness in postpartum recovery.
Common but not normal misconceptions postpartum mamas are told:
- “It is normal to have back pain (or any pain) after having baby.”
- “You will always leak urine now that you are a mama.”
- “You have heaviness in your pelvic floor that will get better with time.”
What results my clients have shared with me:
- “I no longer leak OR feel heaviness in my lady parts.”
- “I did not have any pain after 1-2 visits and I have exercises, and activities I can do in future pregnancies!”
- “I was able to return to run after baby without leaking.”
- “I can jump with my children and not leak.”
- “I went from being unable to lift my baby to lifting in the gym.”
- “I have pain free sex with my husband!”

- Instruction on when to increase or decrease exercise intensity.

The gift is an awesome Mama stretches exercise guide
This guide will support you when caring for your babe(s)
She taught me many different techniques, exercises, nutrition tips and tools that would fit the care I needed for my recovery. I feel much more confident now and I am surprised to see the results in such a short period.
Besides that, she is very sweet, gentle and she always makes sure I understand and that I am comfortable with her.
I wish I would know her before for my prenatal prep but I am glad she keeps a very nice account on social media with many information so I am able to keep learning and being conscious about my health.”
