I take a movement based approach to core & pelvic health so that you can spend less time lying around doing kegels and more time getting strong, being active, and enjoying life. I work with women to feel confident exercising in pregnancy and postpartum, improve core & pelvic floor symptoms, and go through life with less stress and strain so that they can enjoy the activities they love without compromise.

Hey there, I'm Alison

If you have been told...

  • Symptoms like leaking, pelvic floor heaviness, pelvic pain, hip pain, back pain, or core weakness are a normal and expected part of woman & motherhood

  • Blanket advice to just do kegels or to take it easy when it comes to pelvic floor symptoms

  • Conflicting advice about how to exercise in pregnancy and postpartum

  • To avoid certain exercises and activities when it comes to diastasis recti (abdominal separation) or pelvic organ prolapse

But you are ready to...

  • Run, jump, have a water gun fight in the backyard, do your favourite cardio class, or whatever else floats your boat WITHOUT worrying about leaking, pain, discomfort or weakness

  • Feel strong in your body, capable, and confident in pregnancy and postpartum

  • Stop thinking about your vagina all day (or your back pain, your bloated looking belly, body tension, or whatever else in your body is making you STOP and think, rather than DO)

  • Reduce (or even fully alleviate) your symptoms so that you can go through life with more comfort and ease

  • Get REAL LIFE strong. The strong that lets you carry your toddler and the groceries. The strong that has you feeling amazing at the end of the day instead of regretting that hike you went on. The strong that comes from a place of working WITH your body rather than from a place of fighting against your body.

Then there's a few things you may need to do:

Know that pain, core or pelvic floor weakness, leaking, or discomfort isn’t a normal and expected side effect of motherhood.

Block out the noise of anyone else who is telling you otherwise! Bounce back culture, incontinence pads being sold as the solution, your symptoms being dismissed, joking about peeing your pants, and the shame that has us not speaking up doesn't have a place anymore. You don't need to accept any of it.

Learn what your body is doing right now that is contributing to those symptoms so that you can start to change those patterns and build more functional ones.

Your body is so smart. It will always find a path to least resistance and a way to get you through your day. It's time to interrupt that path and build a better, stronger road for your body that ditches the compromise and has you feeling more capable than ever.

Build full body strength and mobility.

That’s right, no lying around on the floor just doing kegels! A holistic approach to pelvic health means moving your WHOLE body- squats, lunges, planks (yes, they're not evil), core work, weights, deadlifts and so much more are actually how you can build a supportive structure to see symptoms diminish and have a body that's capable of all the things ( the magic is in how you do them).

Know that you can build a strong foundation in pregnancy and early postpartum.

There are SO many things you can do to feel better in pregnancy, prepare your body for delivery, and have a smoother postpartum recovery that will help to mitigate issues like diastasis recti, pelvic organ prolapse, incontinence, and pelvic pain.
