I know that a lot of postpartum programmes kind of suck
"don't do this" "never do that" "this exercise is dangerous"
Or they crush you into an oblivion.
This course is different. We find the happy medium. We find what works for you.
Just the stuff that works mixed with a good dose of support to help you find what works for YOU to help you feel strong and capable in your postpartum body and get back to what you love.
I have been training pregnant and postpartum women for years…
Although I love my job and find it incredibly rewarding, working with new mums, there were a few problems inherent in the way we worked together:
- Many mums didn’t need full 1-hour workouts. They needed 10 or 20 minutes. They didn’t have more time than this on a regular basis
- Getting to the gym around the baby’s schedule was often daunting and impractical
- Having a personal trainer, while super motivating and helpful, was just too costly to justify
- Many mums ended up going to group training that they knew wasn’t ideal, just because it was at the right location, at the right time, and was cheap.
I really wanted to solve these problems…
… THIS IS HOW THE COMPLETE POSTPARTUM PROGRAMME WAS BORN.
Through the CPP I have been able to provide my members 80% of what they need to GET STARTED exercising - and then troubleshoot and coach them through the other 20% when they don’t know what to do, or need motivating… all for a fraction of the cost of working one-on-one.
"Your programme is just the best. So grateful to have found you and be a part of it. It's just so MANAGEABLE, yet effective!! I didn't know programmes like this existed. It is the ONLY programme I've been able to stick to, and bonus: I actually look forward to doing it. Thank you!! xx"

Who is the CPP for?
The CPP is for you if...
You feel weak and want to feel stronger. You feel like pregnancy and birth have taken a toll on your body - perhaps more than you expected. Daily tasks like holding your baby and carrying laundry are difficult because your body feels so weak. You want to strengthen your whole body so you can cope with the daily demands of motherhood
You don’t have much time for exercise. You’re a busy mum, you know you need to invest time in your body to feel stronger and get rid of pain, but you want to get in, do the most important stuff, and get on with your day. You don’t want grueling, long workouts. You have important shit to do and exercise needs to support your lifestyle - NOT the other way around.
You are concerned about postpartum specific issues like diastasis recti, pelvic organ prolapse, weak abdominal muscles, weak pelvic floor, c-section recovery - or maybe just aches and pains.
You know you need to do something to feel better, but you’re scared of doing damage. You’ve seen a lot online about exercises that you shouldn’t do, or how you can make things worse. I want you to be able to do ALL THE THINGS - we figure out where you’re at and progress from there. My goal is to empower you and give you the tools to do everything you want to do.
If you recently had a baby and want to heal and ease into exercise safely and effectively, meeting your body where you’re at and building a solid base.
You want to learn how to lift weights safely and actually get stronger - rather than pissing around with 1kg dumbbells and gazillions of reps and “pulses”.
Even if you had your babies many years ago, if you’re still struggling with postpartum issues, the CPP is 100% for you.
The CPP is NOT for you if…
You want to crush yourself with grueling workouts and “burn off the baby fat”. I am passionate about helping women lose weight, but we’re not going to pretend that it’s possible to do that through exercise, and we’re not going to beat ourselves into it.
You feel like "starting slowly" is just making excuses. You believe need to hit the ground running and push yourself really hard to get results. “No pain no gain” and #noexcuses are your mantras.
You believe in “toning”, spot-reduction and “fat-blasting workouts” - there are a lot of myths and gimmicks in the fitness industry. I work to dispel those myths, rather than perpetuate them.
Your sole goal is to “get your body back” - I’ll be the first one to admit that how I look is incredibly important to me, this isn’t a “body-positive” fitness programme. I think aesthetic goals are totally legitimate - BUT… if you think they are the ONLY reason to exercise, and that feeling strong, fit and capable, getting rid of pain and healing your postpartum body don’t matter, then this programme probably isn’t for you.

In particular, she aims to help women navigate the overwhelming amount of conflicting information that exists online. She aims to simplify and educate women about their bodies so that they can make the best decisions for them
"Jen understands womens' schedules - it's amazing that the videos are so well made as well as short. It's actually possible to exercise that way on a regular basis, and if one day you have more time you can do a few videos in a row".
MOBILITY, STRENGTH and CORE workouts to suit every level
10-12 MINUTE WORKOUTS
"Jen's programme was so valuable after birth. When I hit 6 weeks postpartum I didn't know where to start. The programme helped me gently ease into exercise and really focus on my body's healing. I found Jen's videos to also be super helpful in explaining the right technique and how my movements were affecting my healing. Working through the levels helped me to get to a place where I can confidently return to my pre-birth exercise routines. I highly recommend it!"
Frequently Asked Questions
What do I get with my membership?
The Foundational Programme: Core, Mobility and Strength Workouts
Workouts are split up into Core, Mobility and Strength. Each module has 4 or 5 levels. This is because you could be on totally different levels in each of these essential components of postpartum fitness. You could be really flexible, but feel really weak, but be ok at the core stuff. This allows you to personalize the programme 100% to your needs.
A Private Members’ Support Group
Where you can get support directly from me - I answer all your questions personally and make short videos every week to answer all questions. You can get to know other members and be part of a community of mums that are all working towards feeling better in their postpartum bodies.

When you join the course, you get a series of emails telling you EXACTLY what to do and how to get started. You can of course reach out directly to me any time and I will help you with anything you need.

Variety of Movement
You will never hear me say that you can never do X movement (like sit ups, crunches or planks, deadlifts or running) - my philosophy is that there are NO BAD MOVEMENTS - although there may be ones you aren’t yet ready for - we work on building the strength to perform them, rather than avoiding them forever.
