Strengthen Your Core, Heal Diastasis Recti and Reverse the Symptoms of Pelvic Floor Dysfunction.
Hi, I am Emma McAtasney, I earned my Pilates credentials through BASI Pilates, a highly respected college-level Pilates teacher training programme which aim is to create and maintain professional standards for the teaching of the Pilates Method to the highest calibre.
In addition, I hold the Burrell Education Pre and Postnatal certifications. The Burrell Education courses are designed to educate and support Women's Health Professionals, Physiotherapists and Fitness Professionals in the creation of offerings that have the potential to transform the lives of the women they serve. I am also a NCEHS personal trainer and Precision Nutrition Coach and founder of a boutique Pilates studio in Dundalk, Ireland.
I have loved all things health and fitness since I was a teenager. I especially love working with my clients in creating a lifestyle that gives us a strong and healthy body, inside and out!
All of the individual exercises were chosen because of how effectively they strengthen our core. With the correct exercises, you will be surprised at the level of progress you make EACH week.
Some common exercises may worsen your symptoms and most women don't realise it! Discontinue any of the exercises I list out for you and make sure to ONLY follow your Training Program. This will help you recover faster and with fewer complications.
I have included detailed written instructions to help you perform each exercise correctly. Some of these exercises may be new for you. It's important to perform the correct exercises with proper form to avoid injury and experience the best results.
Nutrition plays a critical role in the recovery process. My Postnatal Nutrition eBook includes what you need to eat to strengthen the tissues of your core, lose the baby weight whilst maintaining enough calories to safely feed your little one and have the energy to be a great mum!
Six progressive full body Pilates workouts that will safely reconnect you with your core and strengthen your pelvic floor and abdominals (even if you have Diastasis Recti). Safe to begin in the early postnatal period.
Having required physio post-pregnancy, I found Emma's ability to adapt moves, and even recommendations for home practice, excellent. Emma has in-depth ante-natal and postpartum training so however pregnancy has affected you physically, she's probably heard of it and can help.
Emma is highly qualified, motivated, enthusiastic, encouraging, also regularly up-skilling, training and sharing her new knowledge or moves. I really feel the benefit for days afterwards!
I can't say enough good things about this programme. My lower back no longer aches at the end of the day, I don't leak if I sneeze and this has done more to flatten my tummy than all the dieting I've been doing so far. Who knew such simple moves could make such a difference.

You should wait a minimum of 6 weeks following a vaginal birth without complications, and at least 10 weeks following a c-section or any birth complications, before commencing the more intense workouts. Seek medical approval from your doctor before starting any exercise programme after childbirth.
Absolutely yes! Building strength and support in the abdomen and the pelvic floor muscles are appropriate for any stage post-pregnancy.
Pelvic floor strengthening exercises are very successful at improving stress urinary incontinence and they are very important to include as a part of a training programme.
Absolutely yes! If you are over 55yrs you want to give yourself extra time- our cellular turnover (where our cells make a copy of themselves, rebuild and repair tissue) isn't as fast so the results typically take a bit longer. I think it is super helpful to know that at the beginning so you aren't discouraged if you don't see changes right away!
Possibly, it depends on your workout. For best results, exercise which recruits your core intensely should be avoided while working on building strength and support in your deeper core muscles.
