Postnatal & Motherhood
Wellness 1-1 Bespoke Coaching Programme 
Postnatal recovery is a journey that starts from the moment that you give birth to the moment that your body is rehabilitated. This period can take months, years or an entire lifetime and can deeply affect how you function as a woman and mother.
The best way to nurture your postnatal self is to take a self-nurturing, holistic approach and invest in yourself and your wellness. 
 
The sooner you do this the sooner you reap the benefits!

Get ready for the new improved you!

Self-nurturing is so important for us mums, we constantly give to others, do for others and often neglect ourselves-becoming the motherhood martyr who is suffering, worn out, spread too thin and who has lost her mojo.
Well it's time to change that narrative and do something wonderful for yourself. Because when you take care of yourself, life is so much better for you and everyone around you!

What mums are saying

Becky

Having Maria as my personal trainer has honestly been the best investment in myself that I could have ever made. She has been beside me every step of my journey with building my fitness and achieving my fitness and health goals, and been my cheerleader!

Whilst I had to take a break due to having my second child, Maria is back helping me with my new goals and wishes and easing me back into exercise again after having my daughter.

I have always been daunted by gyms and classes and so have rarely been as I have not been a sporty person. Maria has changed my view on what I can achieve in my body and I am so grateful.

I would highly recommend Maria to help you achieve your wellness and health goals!

Get the results that you desire

Would you rather go it alone and dabble with a few hit and miss postnatal wellness tips and workouts ?

Or would you rather take the complete bespoke, holistic approach that will guide and support you through the process, get you results and positively transform your body, nutrition, mindset, and lifestyle, all in one neatly packaged personalised solution?

You can have all of that and transform your life, or you can go it alone and hope that you stumble across the right solutions

When you compare this combined programme to other postnatal Personal Training programmes there is truly nothing else out there that includes so many holistically integrated solutions, tools and strategies. It truly is a premium programme.

Even if you read 10 postnatal books and hired a regular personal trainer it would not get you these same resources and results and it would take a lot more time and trial an error, costing you time and causing frustration.

So, do yourself, and your family, a favour. Invest in yourself.  Because we all know that when mums are healthy and happy the rest of the family is more likely to be too!

Why should you choose this programme? 

Are you wondering how this combined Wellness Coaching & Personal training Programme is different from the gazillion other solutions out there?

Well this is the only postnatal wellness programme that:

  • Is truly holistic and covers such a vast range of postnatal wellness topics and resources all delivered and supported via a highly trained and skilled Wellness & fitness professional who is also a mum so can better understand your situation.

  • Teaches you the why, what and how so that you truly understand why you are doing something.

  • Provides safe and progressive postnatal rehabilitative exercise programmes that can include: Yoga, Barre, Body conditioning, Strength training HIIT and much more. 

  • Understands that mindset is a huge part of the self-nurturing process and provides guidance that will help you achieve success.

  • Supports your journey with weekly sessions and unlimited email support. 

  • Is very reasonably priced, especially when you consider the priceless worth of the positive transformations that you will enjoy.

Make your wellness and wellbeing a priority, put yourself first, for a change, and reap the benefits!

Get ready for the new improved you!

Imagine yourself one year from now and you have completed this programme, you wake up feeling positive about your day - looking forward to your awesome self-nurturing plan that you have refined. You start the day with some breathing to centre yourself-it's an automatic habit now and you instantly feel calm yet energised.

 

You do your favourite workout with a focus on moving meditation and finish feeling strong, supple and energised. You follow it up with a simple, delicious nutrient dense breakfast and see that you already have a nourishing healthy lunch and dinner batch prepared in the fridge-yes!-no more cooking required today.
 

You shower and take the time for some active meditation using your favourite scented body wash that you gifted yourself as part of your self-pampering routine. As you dry yourself off you notice how your body has become more sculpted and more shapely and your posture is strong, confident and free from the old aches and pains. Slipping on something that you love to wear you realise that you feel fabulous and you have been feeling this way for quite some time.
 

You skip out of the door well nourished, calm, centered, strong and capable knowing that your body and mind are primed for the day. And no matter what the day brings you are well equipped to deal with it:
 

  • That extra-large smoothie won’t have you running for the nearest toilet-your pelvic floor can handle it- no more inconvenient leaks for you!

  • That queue that is a mile long wont have you cursing and huffing-you know how to make any moment a positive pause for mindfulness.

  • That irritating person who pushes your buttons won’t flip your switch- you know yourself and your stress triggers and have developed a more measured emotional response.

  • That dress you want to wear fits so much better and you feel proud of your strong sculpted body.

  • Those commitments that try to pull you in every direction they won’t get a look in until you are ready and willing because you have learnt to prioritise your own needs and schedule non-negotiable time for yourself.

Whatever you dream of, this could be your life after Postnatal & Motherhood Wellness Coaching!

FAQs

How does it work?
 
You book your FREE 30 minute Zoom transformation call via the website Booking page. You will then be prompted to complete 2 discovery forms so that I can learn more about you before we chat. During the call we will discuss your situation and wellness goals and determine whether I can help you. If we are a good fit then you will be invited to purchase the programme and then book your regular weekly Zoom session slot. 
The programme is delivered entirely online, so once you purchase the programme you receive an email that will provide you with details and links to undergo in-depth screening and goal setting.
You will book in for a regular weekly Zoom session slot and be assigned weekly homework to ensure that you embed what you have learnt and create your own personal habits, practices and toolkit.
You will receive personalised support via email Mon-Fri.
I have just had my baby when can I start the programme?
You can start the wellness coaching component at any time during your postpartum journey.  This may include gentle physically focused exercises/routines such as breathing, pelvic floor, myofascial stretch routines and restorative yoga, suitable for this early stage of postnatal recovery. 
Once you have had your 6-8 postpartum check or 10 post cesarean section check and have been cleared for exercise by your medical practitioner then you can start an programme. 
In order to start and exercise programme you are advised to wait until you have had your 6-8 postpartum check or 10 week post-cesarean section check and have been cleared for exercise by your medical practitioner. 
I have just had my baby when can I start doing the exercise routines?
You are advised to wait until you have had your 6-8 postpartum check or 10 post cesarean section check and have been cleared for exercise by your medical practitioner. Once you have had that you can start phase 1-4 of the exercise routines. 
Before then you can start Phase 0 which is a Rest and Recovery phase with specific breathing, pelvic floor and myofascial routines suitable for this early stage of postnatal recovery.
I gave birth 2, 5, 10 years ago. Is this programme suitable for me or am I too late?
Once you have been pregnant and given birth you will forever be considered postnatal. The after effects of pregnancy and birth can last for years and indeed a lifetime if you don't do anything to manage and rectify them. So you are never too late-this programme tackles symptoms and lifestyle changes from the 4th trimester and beyond so will be of help to you at any stage in your postnatal journey.
It is also a motherhood programme so even if your kids are now teenagers you will benefit from this bespoke approach.
What equipment do I need to be able to do the exercise routines?

The routines will be programmed for your specific circumstances, goals, and preferences. YWe will work closely together to create a programme that willbe safe, effectinve and enjoyable for you so it may encorporate: Dynamic yoga, Restorative Yoga, Strength Training, Interval training, Barre, Myofascial release, walking etc.

So you may be required to acquire any of the following types of equipment to get you started:

  • Full size exercise or yoga mat

  • Resistance bands pack (light-medium-heavy)

  • Loop resistance bands pack (light-medium-heavy)

  • Pair of 1-3KG dumbbells 

  • Pair of 5kg dumbbells or a 10kg kettlebell 

These can be fixed weight or adjustable dumbbells. As you gain strength and endurance you may wish to increase the weights. You can ask your trainer about what equipment brands she recommends. 

My programme is amazing and I know someone who would really benefit from what has been designed for me. Can I share the content with her?

I am overjoyed that you wish to empower another woman and are keen to share your programme. However, I am also keen to protect the investment of you, other mums who have purchased the programme and myself, as a small business owner.

It is also a programme built especially for you so someone else may not get the same results.

So, if you find you are getting great results from your programme then I would ask that you please do not share the content and instead recommend my services and encourage other mums to invest in their wellness by purchasing it themselves. It is also often the case that when someone invests their own money in a resource they are much more likely to use it and reap the benefits.

How do the online sessions work?

 

Once we have scheduled a regular timeslot for your sessions. I will send you a link to your Zoom sessions. You just need to click the link and be ready for your session at least 5 minutes before the start time. As we will have weekly check-in emails we save time and so will usually spend only the first 5 minutes checking in (this can be longer if you prefer or have a specific issue to discuss).

We will then use the session to address your goals so this will most likely be doing a physical session/workout or working on special techniques that benefit from face-to-face interaction such as postural alignment, nutrition/meal planning and preparation, breathing, or discussing a topic that you would like to talk about.

How do I use the Mama Loves Wellness Online Course & Workbook?

You will be granted access to the Course & Workbook once you have been accepted onto the programme. You will have lifetime access and can peruse it at any time.

As part of your self-nurturing assignments you may be asked to watch certain videos or complete certain workbook tasks that particularly align with your goals. This will help you to apply the theory and embed the strategies that you learn into your everyday life and means that you receive coaching both during your live sessions and in-between.

Perusing the course in your own time may also help identify some aspects of your wellness and wellbeing that you want to work on in addition to your original goals.

How will I find the time to work through my programme?

Your programme is designed to be able to fit into your life, however if you have made the financial and energetic commitment to transform your life then I will also ask that you make the time commitment and schedule in at least 30 mins 5 days per week for movement, plus 30 minutes per day for wellness & wellbeing related activities & assignments. 

Remember that self-nurturing and wellness is all about making a stand for yourself and proritising your needs so you will need to assign some non-negotiable me-time to support your wellness and wellbeing.

Will I receive support during the programme?

Absolutely, I will be there every step of the way helping, supporting and motivating you. As soon as we commence your programme you will have unlimited email support Mon-Thurs (I generally don't  work Fri, Sat, Sun) wherein you can ask me anything you need to to support your journey.

What happens once I finish the programme?

Once you finish the Postnatal programme you can choose to continue working with me via monthly membership for  Wellness Coaching & Personal Training or you can check out my DIY Wellness Solutions or personally led Group Programmes.  

What if I purchase the programme and change my mind, can I return the programme and get a refund?

No, I do not offer refunds for Wellness Coaching & Personal Training for two reasons:

1. As soon as you submit your pre-screen/registration form I will start working on it to create an amazing bespoke service for you.

2. I only want you to purchase this programme if you are 100% eager and willing to commit to improving your welllness and wellbeing. I know that this programme can positively change your life but you will not experience that transformation if you do not commit to nurturing yourself.
