FAQS

Questions people ask before joining Prenatal Pilates & Push Prep

Should birth partners join?

Birth partners will benefit most from listening to lectures in modules 4, 7 and 8 as well as watching the Childbirth & Pushing Without Fear workshop in the dashboard which covers birth partner hands on pain relief tips.

I'm over 36 weeks pregnant, am I too late?

Students can join anytime, but it can be challenging to complete the Push Prep course materials in less than 4 weeks. If you are less than 4 weeks from your due date we would recommend doing the Push Mini Course as you don't have as much time to benefit from all the content in the complete Push Prep course.

Can I do the "pushing" part of the course only? I do my own workouts.

We have observed that birth education is most effective when combined with movement and breath training. These workouts are specific to the pregnant core and pelvic floor and help you reduce diastasis, prolapse and incontinence - not to mention train you for pushing. Therefore, we do not offer the course without the movement component. We want our students to get the best possible results.

How long are the workouts?

The workouts range from 15 - 45 minutes and can all be done in the comfort of your own home. You can pause, and come back if you get interrupted mid-way. We get it!

I had a traumatic birth and want to avoid that again, is this the right place for me?

Breathe a sigh of relief. You are in the right place, friend. We have many many students in the course who are recovering from prior birth trauma and hoping for a better experience this time. We will support you step by step.

How do the live Q & A sessions work?

Login to your dashboard and ask questions in our Q&A software! You can even “vote” on other student questions that you want answered. Nikki will host a weekly Q & A on Zoom. You can attend live, or just watch the Q & A recording!

I just found out I'm pregnant. I want to be prepared. Which option should I choose?

Congrats! It is never too early to start this kind of movement and education! Choose one of the options with 9 months access so you can use the resources and get your questions answered throughout your pregnancy.

I never healed my diastasis or prolapse and I'm pregnant again. What do I do?

The key is learning to better manage intra abdominal pressure, and this is EXACTLY what we will teach you! It is possible to prevent further prolapse and diastasis in this pregnancy, and to make your postpartum recovery much smoother!

What equipment do I need?

We recommend a variety pack of booty bands, a set of 2 or 3 lbs. weights and a small inflatable Pilates ball (about 7 - 10 inches). Choose 7 inches if you are under 5 feet 4. Choose 9 or 10 inches if you are taller! Here is a link to our equipment page!

What is your return policy?

These programs are downloadable and/or viewable through streaming. As they are digital, they are deemed “used” upon purchase. This means there are no refunds, no exceptions. Please read the product descriptions carefully and ensure you are aware of what you are getting. Note that it is your responsibility to ensure your computer is up for the job. You can read the full shop policy here.

How quickly or slowly should I move through the course materials?

It is up to you and what makes sense for your life! We offer 3 different ways to navigate the 8 modules depending on how much time you have left in your pregnancy. There is a condensed 6 week path, an 8 week path and a more relaxed 12 week path! If you join us early in pregnancy, you get even more time to absorb the material!
