• "I really like that I don’t have to leave the house or really even get dressed to work with Donyne. At this stage of my life, that makes doing this 3 times a week seem attainable, where it would otherwise be overwhelming." Ocea R

    Welcome to being a mom!

    You have a beautiful new baby and have so many questions about how best to care for your baby that you haven’t thought much about how to take care of you yet.


    Your sleep is interrupted, your body feels completely different than it used to and the things you used to love to do, seem far away.


    On top of that, there is so much conflicting information about what to do to ‘get your pre baby body back’ and honestly, you don’t have time or energy to filter through it right now.


    But you know that doing the wrong thing can cause problems, or maybe you never figured out how to do regular exercise even before you baby was born, it may seem like the easiest thing to do right now is to do nothing.

    I get it.


    It can be totally overwhelming.

    Imagine what it would be like if you didn't have to figure it out all on your own?

  • Good news...
    You don't have to figure out how to heal on your own!

    My name is Donyne and I love to nerd out about bodies and how to recover fully after pregnancy and childbirth.


    Have a look below at how I work with people, just like you, and then pick a time when we can have a complimentary clarity call.


    40 minutes of focused time on the phone to explore:

    • How your body feels NOW.
    • How you wish your body felt.
    • What having a body that felt great would ENABLE in your life 
    • At least one action step for you towards that future.

    My focus with these calls is to help you get some clarity and some support. If we feel like a good fit we can also explore what it might look like to working together to get you where you want to be.

    No child care, no problem

    It's up to you. If you want some non baby time, by all means, but I'm happy to hold your beautiful baby while we work (Comox Valley residents only). And as we continue into movement strategies and exercises your baby can actually help us.

    You Book a Clarity Call

    You can do that here. This is free! It makes sure that we are a good fit, that I can help you, and that you trust and like me. We will talk about what is going on for you, what it stops you from doing and what your life would be like without the body complications you are experiencing.


    We choose plan that works best for your needs

    If we decide YES, let's work together, we make a plan. Everyone works differently, and struggles with different things so we will construct a plan so it helps you where you need it and not where you don't. We meet via video or in person if you are in the Comox Valley and get nitty gritty with how often we meet and how much it will cost. You can get a basic idea of how much it costs here.


    I invoice, you pay, we set a date for our first session.

    I'll send you an invoice and the details of the plan we decided on together. You pay through Paypal, Interac e transfer or Credit card. We book our first set of sessions. We continue to revisit and adjust our plan a needed to get you what you need.

    struggle with actually doing the work and need more help to show up for yourself and DO IT?


    Let's talk about it and see if we can come up with a plan that will work for both of us.

  • FAQ

    I'm told I need an operation, can you still help me?

    It depends completely on your diagnosis.


    For some things, yes, and you may not need that operation.


    For other things I can improve your condition and help you recover from the operation but the operation will still be necessary.


    If you haven't already, get assessed by a women's health physiotherapist to start and then...


    Let's talk.

    What training do you have?

    Great question!


    Advanced Post natal assessment, core restore and functional exercise


    Yoga teacher training


    Hypopressives/Low Pressure Fitness

    Do you have a guarantee?



    I want you to win.


    For that to happen we both need show up and do the work.


    If you engage with the material and follow my instruction and you don't see a change I will happily refund your money.
