Let me introduce “Your Pelvic Matters”: a program I created, specifically for women of all ages with:
*pelvic floor problems (prolapse, sneeze wee, urge incontinence),
*pelvic pain (hips, lower back, groin and/or pubic area)
*persistent monthly menstrual cramps, and
*pregnant women wanting to prepare their pelvic floor for a natural birth
The “Your Pelvic Matters” program is so significant that I actually turned it into a qualification for other pre/postnatal fitness instructors, just like me.
HOW IS “YOUR PELVIC MATTERS” DIFFERENT?
My approach to pelvic floor-centred exercise nowadays is very different to most professionals.
I look at the ALL of the muscles that affect pelvic function from the foot to the neck.
Think of it as a full-body approach. There’s not a ‘squeeze and release’ in sight.
I address what’s tight, what’s weak, what needs strengthening and what needs a jolly good relax out..
…to get the pelvis itself better aligned, so ALL of the muscles attached above and below it, are a tonne happier as you go about your life.
As modern-day humans who sit more, and move a heck of a lot less than our ancestors.
This equals a lot of congestion going on in the pelvic arena, ladies, and it’s only going to get worse if you do nothing to change how you go about your day.
A lot of the clients I’ve seen privately for birth prep, period/pelvic pain, prolapse, and pelvic floor weakness actually have a very tight pelvic floor.
From an anatomical perspective, it’s actually very difficult to get strength into a muscle, without lengthening it first.
Physiotherapists use this same analogy when you go to see them with say, shoulder pain for example…
…they will stretch out the affected area first, before giving you exercises to strengthen the opposite body part.

So, if you’ve been doing your traditional pelvic floor exercises in an effort to fix your pelvic floor function, and you’ve seen no improvement in your symptoms, another approach is needed, don’t you think?
If you get constant back/pelvic/back pain – I can give you life-long coping strategies to get you loading your system better.
Menstrual cramps are not normal – and if the only way you can get through your period, is with pain killers, you need “Your Pelvic Matters” in your life. Period. (Sorry – couldn’t resist the bad pun there!).

HOW DO I SECURE MY PLACE?
Just need you to do 2 things:
1) Make payment of £97 for the 6-week course (click ‘Add to Cart’ below), and
2) Email me with “Your Pelvic Matters” in the title to let me know you’ve paid
I’ll then confirm your space via return email, and will be in touch to health screen you and ask how I can tailor the class to your specific needs.
Remember: only you know your condition, symptoms, what your tight and tender spots are, and where your weaknesses are, so expect a few emails back and forth, to ensure I gather enough of an exercise history from you to make your attendance more than worthwhile at these specialist classes.
HOW QUICKLY COULD I SEE A DECREASE IN MY SYMPTOMS?
Well, not wanting to blow my own trumpet here, but here’s some feedback:
“I have been doing my exercises and stretches religiously. Could it be that I’ve seen an improvement in my pelvic floor in just 4 days…?!” – Kate, Third-Time Mum, Sneeze-Wee Sufferer
“The postures and exercises you suggested are wonderful. As you may remember, I was suffering with menstrual cramps at the time of our appointment – and I left feeling more energised and without cramp – that’s truly amazing!” – Ursula, Period Pain Sufferer
“With your guidance, thoughtful nature and wicked sense of humour, Claire – I can’t thank you enough. After me hobbling about for my first appointment and then finding myself walking out pain-free an hour later- you well and truly had me sold!” – Esther, Mum, 5 months Postnatal, back-pain sufferer
“Just to let you know my back and pelvis is already feeling better and my pelvic floor is so much stronger even after my first week of working with you! I refused to accept that: ‘back pain and pelvic floor weakness are part of pregnancy’. I have been very conscious of trying to sit, walk and bend correctly and it seems to have helped!” – Jane, 28 weeks pregnant, Second-Time Mum-To-Be + Prolapse + Sneeze-Wee Sufferer
“I’ve gone from 2 days a month around the clock ibuprofen to none!” – Christine, Period Pain Sufferer
“I had some pelvic pain earlier on in my pregnancy and was referred to an Obstetric Physiotherapist. However, after working with you and thinking more of my posture and alignment it disappeared, without needing to see a Physio or any further intervention. Winner!” – Clair, Third time Mum-to-Be, 39 weeks pregnant + pelvic pain sufferer
