Hi i'm Jess
I’m a true country girl who would prefer to dress for comfort above all else and thinks activewear should be a form of acceptable attire on all occasions. I am a certified personal trainer based in the Maitland/Newcastle area who specialises in pre and postnatal fitness. I love creating workouts with pelvic floors in mind to help my clients feel stronger, more confident and reduce or eliminate pelvic floor symptoms.
I know (live and breathe) pre and postnatal fitness. so you don't have to
Like you, I felt frustrated, unheard and for a short time believed it was expected to be in pain and suffer pelvic floor symptoms “just” because I had a baby. I struggled to find the right advice and went in circles with health professionals telling me things like “just give it time”, “try to relax” and “it’s common but not normal”.
Eventually, I directed myself to see a women’s health physiotherapist for assessment and diagnosis and learnt that I could change my symptoms and I didn’t have to suffer. My experience left me wondering how many mums had experienced the same but hadn’t found the care and advice they needed.
It was then Moofitmoofit was born. I coupled my knowledge, skills and personal experiences to support, educate and bridge the gap between postnatal care and the return to exercise for mums. My goal is to provide a service where mums feel heard, empowered, informed and in control of their postpartum bodies.
