Changing the landscape of the fitness industry, one pelvic floor at a time!

I used to be just like you...

Pre pregnancy I was in great shape. I had grand plans for an unmedicated birth, I’d done all my homework, I was feeling confident AF. But my dreams were shattered when an emergency c-section quickly became the only safe option. I was absolutely devastated. What about my Teaser? What about my Roll Ups and my Hundreds?

Two years later I still had a 5cm diastasis (abdominal separation about as severe as it gets), I had severe low back pain and was constantly throwing my back out from the slightest thing, I had a grade 2 rectocele prolapse, which i didn’t even know was a thing at the time. I just thought my vagina was falling out! And I had been told by my doctor that the only way to fix my diastasis was with surgery! That did not sit well with me. Really?! 

I started learning everything I could from doctors, physical therapists, chiropractors, other Pilates instructors, and one thing became abundantly clear to me. Women are being massively let down by both the fitness industry and the healthcare industry.

Being told “you’re in pain? That’s normal”

“Can’t jump on a trampoline? Normal”

“Pee when you laugh? Normal”

“Mummy-tummy?, painful sex? All normal”

What’s frustrating about these comments is that whilst all of these things are extremely common in women who’ve given birth, these do NOT have to be our new normal. We’re being led to believe these things, but it doesn’t have to be true. 

There HAD to be a better way.


I eventually managed to COMPLETELY close my own 4 finger diastasis, got rid of my mum-tum, sex is no longer painful, my vagina no longer feels like it’s falling out, and I absolutely CAN jump on a trampoline thank you very much!

Unfortunately the information available to the general public about how differently the core functions after birth is very often conflicting and confusing. I’ve even been told by other fitness instructors “don’t talk about the pelvic floor. People don’t care”. This needs to change. Because in order for the core to function correctly after birth, the pelvic floor must first be retrained. And I'm not talking about kegels here.

The core is a complex pressure system, but the exercises required to heal it are actually fairly simple. You just have to know how.

With the right knowledge and a few simple healing exercises, we absolutely CAN reclaim our cores post birth and it is my life’s greatest passion to show other women what I have learnt.

I now feel stronger and more confident than I have ever done in my life and it’s my passion to inspire you to move smarter; so that you too can become more comfortable in your own body - literally. I can help you feel your abs again!

The pelvic floor was not designed to function independently from the rest of the core.

the vision:

Pilates and pelvic health should be accessible to everyone with a pelvic floor!

Pilates and pelvic health should be accessible to everyone with a pelvic floor!

Having been teaching Pilates since 2011, and practicing since 2008, it wasn’t until a few years after I had my daughter that I REALLY started to witness the true power of the body and its remarkable ability to heal itself when given the right tools and know-how.

I started out as an instructor who “just taught good workouts”. I excelled in the Pilates studio at helping people feel like the best version of themselves. I taught women in their 40s how to touch their toes (even though their doctor had told them their anatomy would make it impossible for them). I taught men how to do the Teaser and perfect their golf swing. I taught 70-somethings how to stand up from the mat without using their hands. And it felt great to help others with these functional achievements!

People were complaining of aches and symptoms that I didn’t know how to fix. And I'm a fixer. I like to fix things. So this didn’t sit well with me.

I felt like I'd come to the end of the road with my Pilates education. So I started only taking further education and training from physical therapists and pelvic health experts. Eventually it all started to fall into place. Suddenly I was able to help people eliminate things like: tailbone pain, leaking, urge incontinence. I was not only able to completely close my diastasis and reverse my prolapse, but I was also able to help others do the same. I helped people recover from previous spine surgeries and hysterectomies. I helped people correct rib flare, and pelvic floor related postural imbalances. Suddenly my teaching took on a whole new meaning, and I knew I had to share what I’d learnt with more people than my private clients. 

So in 2020, I launched my very first online program. What you now know today as the Mama Method 6 week program, has been reworked, refined, and relaunched several times, as I continued to test, tweak, and refilm sections of it based on questions from its users. In August 2023 I relaunched the current version of it, and it has now served over 800 women. Many of whom tell me that what they learnt inside has literally changed their life!

Not everyone has the means or the resources to do private Pilates and 1:1 pelvic floor rehab. But it is my life’s greatest passion to make sure that everyone with a pelvic floor has access to what they need. Whether via an online program, or through free resources, everyone deserves the opportunity to change their pelvic floor story! 

But after the birth of my daughter, I started teaching more and more moms, and something felt like it was missing.
