About me

My name is Jenny and I'm a certified Create Lift Hypopressives Coach and qualified Pilates Instructor.

I suffered a prolapse after the birth of my first child which completely devastated me, and I felt both physically and mentally broken. Like a lot of women, I could see no way out and thought I would be living with my symptoms and limited lifestyle for the rest of my life. Before children, running was my mental and physical outlet and I couldn’t imagine never being able to experience the freedom of that again.

After my second child I decided to take charge of my health and over the course of a year, researched and tested everything I could possibly find. From vaginal lasering to pelvic floor trainers and everything in between. Over this time, I discovered Hypopressives. I signed up for the Create Lift Course with Alice Houseman that helped be heal from my prolapse.


Fast forward a couple of years and I trained as a Create Lift Coach so that I can give other women the hope that prolapse doesn’t have to be a life sentence. I’m now running as much as I like and recently completed a half marathon, something I literally never thought possible post babies. If you’d like to learn more book a call with me and we can get started!

History of hypopressives

Hypopressives were developed by Marcel Caufriez, a Belgian physiotherapist. In the late 1980s, Caufriez noticed that traditional abdominal exercises, such as crunches and sit-ups, were often ineffective and even potentially harmful for women with pelvic floor issues. He began developing a new approach that focused on reducing intra-abdominal pressure and engaging the deep core muscles without straining the pelvic floor.


Caufriez coined the term "hypopressive" to describe this technique, which involves a specific sequence of breathing exercises, postural adjustments, and isometric contractions of the core muscles. He initially applied hypopressives in the context of postpartum recovery and pelvic floor rehabilitation.


Over the years, hypopressives gained recognition beyond postpartum care and started being used to address various pelvic health issues, including urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, and diastasis recti. The technique also garnered attention in the fitness and sports performance communities for its potential benefits in core strength, posture, and overall physical performance.
