Who is this program for?
Caesarean Section (C/S) deliveries
Depending on how recently you have delivered baby by C/S your scar may looked healed on the outside but you may still be healing on the inside. We design a program specifically for you to promote fast and effective weight loss as well as promote proper healing and restrengthening of your core muscles!
The bonus of our midwifery lead program is that we design your program to focus on fast effective weight loss while tending to your lactation requirements. Your program is designed to adapt and change as your calorie requirements and nutritional change with increasing or decreasing the number of daily breast feeds. You can feel rest assured that your program is tailored especially for you so will support your lactation.
Instrumental vaginal deliveries can weaken your pelvic floor and can lead to future incontinence and gynecological problems later on in life. Your program focuses on strengthening and restoring your pelvic floor muscles to help prevent any future problems.
Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome
Your pre pregnancy program is focused on restoring your fertility and balancing your reproductive hormones to normalise your reproductive cycle and help you to conceive. We have designed your exercise program and nutritional guide to target fast effective weight loss as well as to restore and improve your fertility.
Are you having problems becoming pregnant?
I have over 4 years experience working with a highly recognised fertility clinic within Western Australia. Your program is specifically designed to promote fast effective weight loss and also to help restore and improve your fertility to help you fall pregnant. We assess the reason behind why you might be finding it hard to conceive and design your program just for you. There are some unknown reasons behind fertility and not all fertility problems can be overcome by weight loss and a change in diet, but for many women who are overweight, weight loss as little as 5 percent can help improve fertility and help with natural conception.
Pregnancy back pain
Back pain and backache during pregnancy is a common discomfort with a lot of women. We design your exercise program to focus on strengthening you core and other associated muscles to help support your back and ease your back pain.
During the end of your pregnancy or during labour you may have experienced separation of the left and right side of your abdominal muscles leaving you with a gap down the midline of your belly. We closely assess the extent of this gap and design you a restrengthening and healing abdominal workout to bring this gap back together again to flatten out your abdominals to prevent your abdominal muscles healing with a post pregnancy bulge. This is an extremely important step in ensuring you do not do any damage to your stomach muscle or cause abnormal healing that may lead to further abdominal trauma!
Prenatal weight loss
Your program is designed to accelerate pre pregnancy weight loss to prime your body for a healthy problem free pregnancy to give your baby the best start to life. Your program also focuses on regulating your reproductive hormones for and easier natural conception. Losing weight before pregnancy improves the overall health and wellbeing of you, your baby and your pregnancy, the benefits of weight loss for overweight women are endless!
Common discomforts in pregnancy can pop up at any time. The list of these uncomfortable symptoms are endless..... morning sickness, swelling, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, aches and pains, heartburn, constipation, lack of sleep, fatigue...... You get the picture! We design your pregnancy program to promote a healthy comfortable pregnancy by helping to prevent and relieve these discomforts.

We design your program around your delivery. You tell us how many weeks ago you delivered baby and details of your delivery such as any tears, cuts, complications, and we customise a program to target fast effective pregnancy weight loss for a new, improved fitter and healthier version of yourself!.
I have 7 years experience working with pregnant mothers like yourself with gestational diabetes. We safely design your exercise program and nutritional guide just for you. We assess whether your gestational diabetes is diet controlled, requires oral medication or requires insulin therapy and then use this information to design your program.

If your medical condition is out of our scope of competence then we will inform you of our decision and provide you will a full refund.
Past or current injuries

Pregnancy complications can appear at any time. The bonus of our midwifery led programs is that we personalise your program to suit your pregnancy needs to whatever stage of pregnancy you are at. Your program is very flexible which means we simply adapt and change your exercise program and nutritional guide if or when unexpected changes occur in your pregnancy. I have 7 years experience working within one of the worlds highest risk maternity hospitals, Western Australias' highest risk maternity hospital so I am very experienced working with a variety of pregnancy complications. You can usually continue to exercise or simply adapt exercise to suit most pregnancy complications, but some complications need you to stop physical activity all together. We assess your pregnancy on a personal level and design your program just for you, but if it is not safe for you to exercise through your pregnancy or if your complication is to high risk for us too manage then we will inform you accordingly and refund you the full amount.
Past pregnancy complications
We assess any previous pregnancies for possible potential risk factors that could affect what type of exercise is right for your current pregnancy. We use this information to design you a safe and suitable exercise program for this pregnancy. There are a few previous pregnancy complications such as premature labour that could indicate that exercise is unsafe for your current pregnancy or may indicate that you can continue to exercise through this pregnancy but exercise may need to be adapted to keep your current pregnancy safe.
