Meet Jessie

Jessie Mundell (she/her) is CEO at JessieMundell.com, where she’s helped thousands of moms and parents feel strong, confident, and EMPOWERED with fitness programs tailored to THEIR specific needs.

With degrees in prenatal and postnatal exercise, Jessie supports parents in their self-care so they can heal faster, reconnect with their bodies, and develop a sense of confidence & capability that translates to their lives.

Her programs, To Pregnancy and Beyond and Core + Floor Restore , focus on effective exercise during pregnancy, rehab of the core and pelvic floor for moms, postpartum and C-section recovery, and give thriving folks permission to enjoy their bodies.

Meet Anita

Anita Lambert (she/her) is a perinatal pelvic health physiotherapist, owner of Holistic Health Physiotherapy, the creator of the Bump to Birth Method, mentor and coach to pelvic health physiotherapists around the world and mom of 2. 

She’s passionate about helping you connect more with your body including pelvic floor plus keep you active and comfortable during pregnancy while you prepare for birth which will give you a head start on your postpartum recovery.

Having gone through two pregnancies, births and postpartum recoveries herself, she knows how confusing information can be online about prenatal and postpartum exercise, birth prep and pelvic floor health.

No one can guarantee how your birth will go. However having worked with thousands of prenatal clients in her physiotherapy practice and students in her Bump to Birth Method plus going through my own experiences, she’s seen how working together with your body (rather than ignoring it) benefits not only you in pregnancy but also during birth and your postpartum recovery.
