“After my first baby i didn’t know about postpartum specific training programs and felt i rushed back in too quickly without building up a solid foundation of stability and strength. After my second baby i tried moofitmoofit and I love it! It’s a great way to ease back into exercise and i was able to do all of the exercises comfortably. I love all the info jess shares in the ebook as well as the videos to explain how to complete the exercise with correct technique”

In 2016 I was deep in the newborn trenches navigating motherhood and learning how to heal my postpartum body. I had the fitness experience, the bachelor degree, textbook pregnancy and birthing experience and yet i still suffered from pelvic floor dysfunction.
The doctors kept saying “just give it time” and”there’s no way pelvic floor muscles have an impact on pelvic floor symtoms” But i knew this was complete BS. No woman should have to go through having her concerns and symptoms dismissed, no woman should have confusion around what’s considered normal or safe.
It was because of this journey that i am here now. I went from being a oral health therapist treating teeth and gums to studying sport science with an end goal of wanting to help people with chronic pain.
Combining my love for health, fitness, science and the pre and postnatal journey I finally knew where my heart and soul truly gravitated too. Helping ,supporting, educating and empowering women to have strong, functional, capable bodies to take them though pregnancy, labour, birth and beyond.
“No woman should have confusion around what is considered normal or safe”
The goal of exercising during pregnancy is to maintain health and fitness, prepare your body for pregnancy, labour, delivery and post-natal recovery. Exercising helps to:
I have designed this program to use minimal or no equipment so it can easily be completed in the comfort of your own home or gym setting. I suggest having at least.
1 – 12″ mini loop band
1 – 41″ long loop band or resistance band with handles and door anchor
1 – pair of dumbbells or a Kettlebell
1 – stability ball (essential for third trimester programming)
Yes – It’s important that all pregnant and early postpartum women consult with their healthcare providers (GP, obstetricians, midwife, physiotherapist or exercise physiologist) regarding physical activity and exercise during and after pregnancy.

This program is not designed for weight loss particularly during pregnancy. However, many postpartum clients have reported their body composition changing along with improved functional movement from completing the programs.
I hold a bachelor in oral health which required me to study anatomy, physiology , pathophysiology and psychology. I have also completed half my degree in exercise and sport science again studying anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology along with biomechanics, human movement and sports psychology. I have a certificate three and four in personal training and pre and postal natal certification.
I hear you! I always say you don’t find time, you make time. Perhaps that’s by getting up a little earlier than usual, giving up some tv time or breaking your workout up in sections to complete over the course of the day.
Unfortunately kegel exercises , although popular aren’t always the answer to pelvic floor issues. Some women have an hypertonic (over active) pelvic floor and aren’t able to relax the pelvic floor muscles. Therefore doing more kegel exercises in this case is counter productive as the contraction is only one small piece of the equation. Studies have show most women don’t actually know how to correctly do a kegel exercise which is why I have developed in depth written Information and video tutorials on how to correctly connect to your pelvic floor and discuss in depth more on this topic in the ebook.
Absolutely listen to your body and rest if you feel the need. For most women exercises are considered safe and present minimal risk to mother and child, however, modifications are required along the way to accommodate the physiological and anatomical changes that occur during pregnancy. Exercise is encouraged to be continued until it becomes uncomfortable to do so or unless advised by your healthcare practitioner. It’s important that all pregnant women consult with their healthcare providers (GP, obstetricians, midwife, physiotherapist or exercise physiologist) regarding physical activity and exercise during and after pregnancy.

“Bulky” is very subjective and each individual will have different ideas and definitions of what this means to them. In general, for most women building muscle mass is difficult and takes a lot of time and consistent training. Weighted exercises can change your body composition, improve your bone density and prevent osteoporosis. It helps to improve your posture and alignment, pelvic floor and core health and prevent other diseases. It can also make you feel strong, empowered, improve your mental health and boost your confidence.
