You're tired of using your pregnancy (or kids!) as an excuse to not pay attention to your own health.
Your doctor gave you exercise clearance at 6 weeks but you wish you had more detailed information about what to do (and not to do).
You are afraid to exercise because you don't want to get hurt or make your ab separation & pelvic floor weakness worse.
- You're ready to create an effortless habit for exercise with ALL the accountability, feedback and support.
- You were an athlete before pregnancy and you are ready to establish a solid foundation of strength to do what you love.
➡️ TUTORIALS & PRACTICES
Content for this program is dripped weekly so the whole group works through the steps together. Each week you will have a few short video tutorials to watch (approx. 5 - 10 minutes long), plus a set of pre-recorded practices (approx. 10-20 min each day) to guide you through that week's work. A printable checklist of each week's exercises will make it easy to integrate your strengthening practices into your mom life (and track how well you're doing)! You will receive lifetime access to the lessons and any updates that are made in the future.
➡️ LIVE Q&A / MOTIVATION HACKS
Once you start doing the work, we know questions can come up and overcoming obstacles with time and motivation could feel like a challenge if you were trying to do it alone. Weekly Live Calls held via Zoom ensure you never feel alone. We enthusiastically support you in busting through blocks, sharing our time and motivation hacks with you so you can follow through on your plan, troubleshooting any aches and pains, and getting immediate answers to your ALL your questions. This is a great time to ask questions that come up during your practices and get feedback on your form in real-time. Replays of each call will be made available for the duration of the 8-week program.
➡️ PERSONALIZED FEEDBACK ON YOUR FORM
Each week has a specific focus area, starting with the focus areas and practices offering the highest payoff. Since the practices build, being able to feel your muscles coordinating and firing strong at every step along the way is key. To help you master that, we will give you the kind of really personalized feedback usually reserved only for our private clients. Each week, you will be invited to send us pictures and/or videos of your workouts or specific moves for personal feedback and guidance. Whether you submit posture checks, troubleshooting, form checks, and more, we're here to help you master feeling your core and pelvic floor again.
➡️ 24/7 SUPPORT
You'll have direct access to Kendra & Nicole in the private Facebook Group where we can provide daily support, encouragement and accountability while you move through the program.
➡️ CELEBRATE YOUR PROGRESS & HAVE SOME FUN!
Each participant will be buddied up with a group of 2 to 3 mamas for additional accountability, connection, and community. We also have some Fun Friday surprises in store for you to help celebrate your progress and the amazing things you're learning about yourself.
Postpartum Repair gave Amanda the tools to feel like herself again...
You knew exactly how to retrain your core and pelvic floor muscles so that you start improving your diastasis recti and feel your body getting stronger every single week.
You could feel the new-mama aches and pains melting away in your workouts instead of feeling worried that you are doing the wrong exercises or doing more than your body can handle.
You knew for sure that the few minutes you’re giving yourself every day for repairing your body is time well spent.
- You started saying ‘yes’ to more challenging exercises because you feel the truly solid in your strength and confident in your body's ability.
- You moved from surviving day-to-day to thriving despite the crazy world we live in right now.
This mom of 2 started to close her diastasis within 6 weeks...
“With each week, [Postpartum: Repair] explores a new muscle group that I either didn’t know I had or didn’t realize was so tight and in need of stretching. I’m SO excited to finally feel my core and to understand the canister muscles that define it through breath.
My diastasis recti was soft and deep, nearly 3 fingers wide upon starting and after trying to get back to the gym. After a single 6-week series, I could tell it was closing and the sides well-defined. Now after two times through the course, it’s barely a finger width and solid. My breath is deeper and my frozen back muscles have relaxed!”

Becky learned how tweaks to her nursing posture could reduce pain...
“I felt the program gave me "permission" to start using my abs again, slowly. And gave me useful tools to build the trans-ab muscles so I can get back to my pre-pregnancy workouts. You also gave me tips on how to reduce hurting myself or overusing my back while carrying baby and nursing that I use daily."
- Becky C, NJ
“I started the course today and man I have to tell you...I wish I had gone through this prior to or right after my first or even second child. Your explanations are so eloquent in high-level terms but attainable. What you explain in the introduction is knowledge that was hard fought for me to attain in the year it took for me to go to three different doctors. My physical therapist has been piecemeal educating me on the concepts you review, but this is so comprehensive. Amazing course!”Natalie
“"I wanted to thank you for putting your course out into the universe! It is so well done and incredibly results driven. I'm not even through all the exercises and I'm already feeling my core again. There's all these subtle adjustments and engagement with my core throughout my day that I have not experienced in many years.”Cheryl
“Before this course, I felt my body didn't go back the same after my last baby. I really liked understanding the muscles and how they are connected. I can’t say enough good things about this [course]. If you want to really understand your postpartum recovery and your body, this course is for you. I had a few ah-ha moments during the session. I feel like I understand my core muscles better.”Lisa
“This course gave me the physical tools to strengthen my core and insight into the emotional / spiritual work I need to do…and why. Don’t put off this essential work one more moment. You need and deserve this to be the best woman and therefore Mom you can be!”Valerie
“I learned some practical and useful exercises, like learning to use the breath to activate my core. This course is useful, practical, energizing and healing. I would encourage new moms to invest the time in themselves.”Amy
“This course gave me easy to understand practices that immediately made me feel a difference. I was able to find my pelvic floor and understand how to engage it. The course gave me peace of mind that I can be repaired!”Jennifer
I'm 4 weeks postpartum. Can I join the program now or do I need to wait until I'm cleared at 6 weeks?
First, you should absolutely follow your OB/GYN and Midwife's directives. That being said, you CAN join the program before your 6 week clearance. We’ve had moms join the program 2 weeks postpartum and they found it very useful to focus on the learning during that time. We also give a lot of modifications through the classes to fit early stages of recovery, and we can offer you even more personalized feedback and support in the Facebook group while you're going through the program. PLUS, you'll have lifetime access to this course so you can digest the information at your own speed of recovery and revisit the information as you need.
Is it ok to do this program if I had a c-section?
Totally! It's equally as important for c-section moms to address core and pelvic floor function. We also have a special module for c-section considerations, and you're going to love how this course helps you turn on your core and pelvic floor and addressing the numbness around your scar.
What if I can’t make the live calls, will there be replay?
Definitely! The live calls will be recorded, and if you can’t make it live, you will have an opportunity to send us your questions so we can answer them on the call. Replays will be available until the end of the 8 weeks.
How many hours can I expect to work on this each week?
With the video lessons, weekly practice, and daily habit implementation, you can expect about 3 - 5 hours each week. But most of the work can be done in small 10-minute increments of time. There are 168 hours in a week, 56 of which are spent sleeping (ideally!). That leaves you with 112 hours to allocate as you wish. Your goals are worth 5 hours a week!
How long will I have access to the program?
You will have lifetime access to the Postpartum Repair & Restore course! We have found that once mothers step through the program, many get a lot of benefit from repeating the entire program or going back to certain weeks to deepen their understanding or mastery of the practices.
What's the benefit of joining the Live Coaching Round?
Imagine trying to teach yourself how to play the piano, versus having a teacher there to guide your learning and progress. The benefits of regular interaction with a teacher are many, whatever your goal. When you enroll you will get DAILY opportunities for support from both of us in a private Facebook group. We will also hold LIVE Zoom coaching calls each week (8 calls in total!) where we answer your questions, help you troubleshoot, tackle motivation challenges, and more. Postpartum Repair & Restore is our most complete and proven method, refined over 5 years of working directly with hundreds of women, for restoring your muscular strength from the pelvic floor, to the core and upper back and shoulders. It combines short daily movement practices you’ll do on your own each day (with an accountability buddy from the group), informational lessons, opportunities to submit your progress for personalized feedback and live group troubleshooting calls. You get lifetime access, and we repeat live, guided rounds a few times each year. The learning is spiral - meaning most moms take advantage of the repeated live rounds and go through it a few times because each time they do it, they access a new layer of strength, hear different information, increase intensity of their repair/restoration, and up their fitness drastically….closing Diastasis, stopping leaking, neck and back pain disappearing, and getting back to running, passing their military test, and more! Some extremely focused moms (who also had a LOT of help at home) have experienced massive recovery in just one round, but with lifetime access, you don’t have to put extra pressure on yourself if that’s not where you’re at. You can take the first round to do what you can, and then plan to repeat with the next group. Really, you can customize your intensity to what is going on for you, but you never get “less” of the program if things turn out differently than you’d planned. In fact, we are always making little upgrades to the program each round, and you’ll get all of those upgrades automatically without paying anything extra.
Is this program still appropriate for someone with more severe diastasis?
Yes! It’s totally safe for severe diastasis. Our entire method is rooted in physical therapy and corrective exercise concepts, which can set you on a really solid path. The exercises are progressive AND we teach you how to tell if you're doing the work correctly so you become the driver of your own recovery.
I find it really hard to motivate myself. How will this program help me stick to it?
We hear you! It can be hard to motivate when you feel the motivation has to come out of thin air. Our method is designed to give you what is missing from most other postpartum programs that we've researched. We teach you the anatomy and mechanics of how this works so you have a visual connection to what you're doing and WHY. Armed with this information, we've found the inspiration and motivation appear quite naturally. If you're still struggling for motivation, the accountability provided in the live group coaching will light a fire. Know that there are lots of other mamas in our community who feel the same as you do. It’s one of the biggest hurdles we see mamas overcoming in this work, and they are overcoming it!
I have a 4 & 8 year old so I'm not exactly "postpartum" - will this course help me?
Great question! YES! Technically, you are still postpartum because...once postpartum, always postpartum. This course would be perfect for you because issues that happen after pregnancy don't just magically disappear. In fact, diastasis recti or pelvic floor issues could be hanging around without you even knowing it. Now is the perfect time to address them, and you'll learn so much about
If for any reason you aren't satisfied or the program doesn't seem like a good fit, you may request a refund within 7 days of purchase. No questions asked.
