would you love a...
healthy, active, pain-free pregnancy
faster post-natal recovery
Congrats on your pregnancy!
I'd love to help you have a wonderful pregnancy journey!
Everyday in the clinic in my role as women's health physiotherapist, I meet so many different types of pregnant mamas...
the Pregnancy Posse has been designed with all these mamas in mind...
Mama 1 - The first time mama
So it’s your first time pregnant. You’re super excited but… now what?
You have no idea what to expect and you don’t know the questions to ask let alone where to find the answers.
Everyone is keen to offer you their pearls of pregnancy wisdom… but it’s just making you more confused.
Arggghhhh! But don’t worry…
Mama 2 - The ‘I hope it’s not like last time’ mama
This isn’t your first time pregnant… and last time was a less than ideal experience.
Maybe you still haven’t recovered but here you go again.
You want to focus on this pregnancy but can’t help being a little apprehensive after what you’ve already been through.
Not this time around…
Mama 3 - The fit mama
You love getting that endorphin rush and staying fit and healthy.
You’re pregnant but don’t want that to mean sacrificing your health.
You want to stay fit during pregnancy but don’t want to risk hurting yourself or your baby.
You know you need an exercise program designed specifically for pregnancy, but you’re not sure where to look or everything you’ve found is dull, boring and super expensive.
Let’s do this…
Mama 4 - The busy workin' mama
You’re due date is getting closer… but so is that deadline at work.
You struggle to get out of bed in the morning and by the time you get home from work you’re exhausted.
You want to focus more on you and your pregnancy but adding more to your plate seems crazy.
You need something convenient, short, sharp, easy to follow and effective.
I’ve got your back…
Mama 5 - The leaky mama
The thought of sneezing… let alone exercising… makes you nervous.
You’re not alone as 1 in 3 women experience incontinence… but that doesn’t make it any better.
With so many women experiencing the same thing… you’re resigned to the fact that incontinence is just the way it is.
And now you’re pregnant and worried it’s going to get worse.
Help is on it’s way….
Mama 6 - The ouch! mama
Pregnancy started off just fab but now your walk has been reduced to a waddle.
Your favourite comfy chair now feels horrible and your super soft bed feels like concrete ( … goodbye sleep).
You’ve got pain in your pelvis or back (or both) and you’ve still got weeks of this to endure.
You know you need to exercise but everything hurts.
Let’s limber up…
Mama 7 - The empowered birth mama
You’re the envy of all the ladies around you.
You were put on this earth to have fabulous pregnancies.
You’re loving your pregnancy journey so far but just want to give yourself the best chance of having a smooth birth and speedy recovery.
Bring it on…
Posse praise from...
I had a 4.15kg baby girl on Wednesday.
I am a very small woman so all the midwives were asking how I managed to birth such a big baby… without tearing either. I tell everyone that it is from doing the Pregnancy Posse workouts. I really believe that.
I feel the best I have out of all my births even though this one should have wrecked my body the most.
My abdominal separation (last Friday when checked) was at the stage I was 4-5 months post birth with my second.
My pelvic floor is amazing (even though I only did the exercises once a day and not the three that you recommended).
So I wanted to leave this feedback here so others can read it too.
Thank you Laura for your expertise and knowledge.
I have been telling others about the Pregnancy Posse too!
What inspired the Pregnancy Posse?
Many women don’t realise just how much doing a few simple things (…and avoiding some others) can help them have a wonderful pregnancy (and then post-natal) journey.
I love working as a women’s health physiotherapist but it upsets me how many women I see in the clinic with problems during pregnancy and after birth that may have easily been avoided with the right advice.
Many women have never heard of a women’s health physiotherapist… or those that have don’t see one during their pregnancy due to the cost or the inconvenience of having to find the time to travel to appointments.
Whilst I believe nothing replaces a face-to-face appointment with a women’s health physiotherapist…
I knew there had to be a better way for ALL pregnant women to get access to the best, safe, evidence-based pregnancy advice…
The Pregnancy Posse is an online health membership designed exclusively for pregnant women wanting to give themselves the best chance of experiencing a wonderful pregnancy journey.
The Pregnancy Posse has been designed by yours truly, Physio Laura, a specially trained women’s health physiotherapist, with years of experience helping pregnant and post-natal women achieve amazing health outcomes.
Having treated so many lovely pregnant ladies over the years, the Pregnancy Posse has been designed to assist with the common questions, concerns and desires of the ladies I assist.
With so much harmful advice out there, the Pregnancy Posse is based on the latest evidence-based research so you can stay fit and healthy… but most of all safe and not harm you or your baby.
The Pregnancy Posse is available whenever you need it, 24 hours a day with just click of your mouse or tap on your phone screen.
The Pregnancy Posse is super affordable, with access to all the pregnancy goodness inside of the Posse for a fraction of the cost of one appointment to see me in the clinic.
Come with me on a tour of the Posse..
the Pregnancy Posse will help you...
Keep fit and healthy throughout your entire pregnancy from the comfort of your own home
Exercise safely and avoid harming yourself for your baby
Stay informed without feeling overwhelmed by information overload.
Have peace of mind knowing that the Posse is based on the latest evidence-based research
Feel supported by a vibrant of community of other pregnant mamas
what makes the Pregnancy Posse different?
Designed exclusively for pregnant women
Unlike many other programs, this is not just a general exercise program that has been re-branded for pregnant women. It’s designed specifically for the week of pregnancy you’re in.
Be guided by a women’s health physiotherapist
Benefit from my years of training and clinical experience. I see too many people without the adequate qualifications and experience instructing pregnant women.
Easy to follow week-by-week guidance
The greatest information will be useless if it isn’t simple, actionable and easy to follow. The Posse guides you through each specific week of your pregnancy. No overwhelm. Just action.
Based on the latest evidence-based research
Rest assured your following a reliable resource without wading through troves of questionable info. Google pregnancy. 941,000,000 results. Much of that is conflicting and some of it harmful.
Built with the busy mum in mind
I’ve been there (… and hoping to again soon!). Pregnancy can be tough. The juggle is real. The Posse is here to help you, not hinder. Get what you need quickly and easily then get on with your day.
Posse praise from...
Thought it was about time I give you an update.
It's amazing, I'm at week 34 and have had no pelvic pain, no skeletal pain or back pain at all!
I have heard so many stories of people hating the 3rd trimester because of all the pain and discomfort felt but I haven't had any - it's so wonderful.
I believe it's because of the Posse and all of the exercises and resources. The only discomfort I have is the weight of my belly and the stretching ligaments as it grows.
To be honest, the thought of a natural delivery is scaring me a lot because of a lot of horror stories some of my friends have had. But I feel a lot more relaxed about it knowing there are resources on here.
Only 5 weeks to go until I get to meet my little one, unless it comes early!
I told my midwife about the Posse, so hopefully the word spreads :-)
I’m a women’s health physiotherapist and I absolutely love it.
Everyday I get to help pregnant and post-natal women move towards better health.
During my years of clinical experience, I have been very fortunate to work with and learn from some amazing mentors who are well-renowned within the women’s health space.
After having so many lovely ladies say to me… “I wish I had have known about this sooner”… I decided to put together the Pregnancy Posse.
And here we are... after years of hard work learning about all the technical whizz bang to make the Posse work… I can’t wait to welcome you into the Posse.

Frequently asked questions
What is the Pregnancy Posse?
The Pregnancy Posse is an online membership guiding pregnant women through each week of their pregnancy.
Inside the Posse is a weekly program including workouts and educational content tailored specifically to the exact week of pregnancy you’re in.
There is a fabulous resources library covering all you need to know when it comes to pregnancy, labour and recovery after birth.
My favourite part is the wonderful forum where you can ask all your burning questions and connect with other pregnant Mamas.
It’s like having a women’s health physio hold your hand throughout your entire pregnancy!
How do I access the Pregnancy Posse?
The Posse is delivered online. The site is fully responsive so you can access it 24/7 via your computer, tablet or phone.
All you need is an internet connection and you’re ready for pregnancy paradise :-)
Do I need exercise equipment to do the exercises?
No! I have tried to make the exercises as simple and easy as possible so that there are no barriers to staying strong and healthy during your pregnancy.
What will I be able to access in the trial?
The trial will give you access to our Pregnancy Starter Kit, the Pregnancy Kickstart and community forum for 7 days.
The Pregnancy Starter Kit and Pregnancy Kickstart include the foundation courses you will need to build the foundations of a wonderful pregnancy.
You will learn how to contract your pelvic floor and abdominal muscles correctly, safe exercise options, how to modify exercise if you’re in pain, pregnancy nutrition guidelines and so much more!
Once you’ve completed the trial you will then have full access to the entire Posse!
If I join later in my pregnancy will I have missed any important information?
Absolutely not. You can join at any stage in your pregnancy and will always be benefiting from what the Posse has to offer you.
You will have access to all the previous weeks educational pieces regardless of when you join.
You also have a fabulous resources section available to you at any stage throughout your pregnancy.
The exercises are tailored for your specific week of pregnancy, so there will be no need to catch up on any previous weeks workouts.
Couldn’t I just join any online fitness program? Why do I need the Posse?
The Posse has been designed by (me) a women’s health physiotherapist with many years of experience and expertise treating women during pregnancy and after birth.
Unfortunately there are a lot of generic fitness programs out there that are not tailored to pregnant women which could potentially be causing more harm than good.
I have seen far too many clients injure themselves from participating in exercise that was not appropriate for them.
One of the main reasons we’ve created the Posse was to avoid you injuring yourself during pregnancy.
Safe and evidence-based advice is waiting for you inside of the Posse!
I am experiencing pain during my pregnancy. Is this program appropriate for me?
It sure is!
It may seem counter-intuitive… but in many cases the correct exercise will actually help relieve pain.
In the Pregnancy Starter Kit, you will learn about aches, pains and injuries during pregnancy and how you can modify the weekly workouts to be more comfortable for you.
I would always recommend consulting with your local women’s health physiotherapist to ensure you are receiving appropriate diagnosis and treatment.
What if I’ve never exercised before… is it too late to start now that I’m pregnant?
It's never too late to start!
Guidelines now suggest that even if you weren’t exercising prior to pregnancy, it is still highly beneficial to start during pregnancy.
All the exercises in the Posse are gentle and appropriate even if you don’t have an exercise background.
It’s never too late to start!
I was told not to bother strengthening my pelvic floor now and just wait until after I’ve had my baby. Is that true?
Noooooo! It is 110% not true!
I have heard of far too many women being told this lie!
It is never too late to start strengthening your pelvic floor.
The stronger your pelvic floor is before birth, the better your chances of recovery afterwards. Simple.
Will the Posse give me the ultimate pregnancy glow?
If by “glow” you mean a little sweaty and full of amazing knowledge so that your pelvic floor and core stay super strong and you keep extra healthy during pregnancy and improve your chances of recovery after birth…?
Then heck yes you’ll get pregnancy glow!
Can I cancel if the Pregnancy Posse isn’t what I hoped?
Of course! It’s super simple and just takes a few clicks.
I want the Posse to be a no brainer so I want to make it zero risk for you to join.
I’ve made it super easy for you to cancel as I am confident you are going to love the Posse and won’t want to leave.
Some membership sites try to trick you into a long term commitment or make it ridiculously hard to cancel. Yuck!
Not here. No hoop jumping (dangerous during pregnancy!) or awkward phone calls required. Just click cancel and you’re done.
What payments methods and current do you accept?
Credit card or PayPal payments are available.
Payments are in Australian dollars… which means our ladies in the UK and US are in luck as the Aussie dollar is weak in comparison.
I’m a busy woman. What time commitment is required?
Each workout is only 10-15 minutes. So you can commit as little as 10-15 minutes a few times a week and still get plenty of benefit.
However, if you want to spend more time in the Posse, there is an abundance of resources, the weekly Q and A and the wonderful community forum full of lovely ladies.
What if I have a miscarriage or don’t go to full-term?
Unfortunately, miscarriage is much more common than most women realise as it is often not talked about openly.
I actually had 2 miscarriages prior to having my beautiful boy Massi. It was a difficult period and I am super grateful that we were able to have Massi.
If something does go wrong during your pregnancy, please just reach out so that I can do what I can from my end to assist (be it cancelling your current membership and crediting towards your next pregnancy if you elect to try again).
Why should I join the Posse now instead of waiting?
Whilst it’s never too late in your pregnancy to benefit from the Posse, the sooner you join, the better.
You’ll be supported as you move through each week of your pregnancy. Your knowledge and skills will continue to grow so that you’re feeling ready for an empowered birth and speedy recovery afterwards.
And of course, you can make friends with the lovely ladies inside our community forum.
I want to ensure that the experience inside the Posse is always superb, so we may need to eventually cap the number of ladies inside at certain times.
In other words… don’t wait… you’re not getting any less pregnant and I’d love to meet you!
What happens to my membership after I give birth?
Firstly, I hope you send me a photo of you and your gorgeous bubba! I love this stuff!
If you’re on a monthly payment, it will stop after your 40 weeks.
But don’t worry… you will still have access to the Posse for a month or so after you’ve given birth.
And who knows… there might be a post-natal program coming soon ;-)
Can I make an appointment to see you one-on-one?
I am currently easing my way back from maternity leave and focusing the majority of my time on the Pregnancy Posse. So I am working limited days in the clinic.
But this is exactly why I have created the Posse so that you can have full access to me and my brain inside the Posse!
Inside the Posse you can ask me all your burning questions inside the forum, plus we run regular Q&A sessions where I encourage every woman to submit their questions for me to answer!
Does this program replace seeing a women’s health physiotherapist?
I would always recommend to see your local women’s health physio so that you can be assessed and managed appropriately.
The Posse is a compliment program!
