Meet Mae

Mae has 3 beautiful girls, 2 of which she had without any Pilates training. Then she discovered MatWorks and it changed her life forever.

My core, especially my lower abs and pelvic floor have never been so good!

I started my pilates journey when my 2nd child was 2, a year before my 3rd pregnancy. I went along to my usual classes and adjusted exercises accordingly. I pilate’d right up to my due date.

I saw Phoebe at 5.5weeks to do her post natal programme and now 6months on I continue to enjoy and regain strength, ever cognisant of ongoing influence of hormones on joint laxity and gradual strength rebuilding and knowing my abilities!

If Mae can do it, so can you!

As a Pilates professional and dancer with a keen interest in developing and increasing my skill set I jumped at the opportunity to learn more about pre and post natal Pilates. Since then I’ve coached thousands of women through their post natal recovery one on one, all of whom rave about the positive effects of doing our NatalWorks programme.

Not only does it feel good to take some time to care for yourself at a period of your life where most of your focus and energy is being drained by your new baby, but also to know you are reconditioning your body in a gentle and safe way to ensure you don’t come into trouble later in life.

These one on one sessions have been so popular that I had to find a way to be in everyone’s living room everyday, so naturally our 12 week Post Natal Pilates Programme was born!

I’m so excited for you! You have the most amazing opportunity to start from scratch with your abdominals and really cement some brilliant habits for the future!

What is NatalWorks




Who is this for?

This programme is designed for women to commence anytime from 6weeks post birth.

If you had a c-section, you can still partake in the entire programme but we recommend you begin after 8 weeks or from when your scar is no longer sore. We also suggest repeating the first few weeks to really build up the deep abdominal strength slowly.

Please consult your doctor or health practitioner and get their permission before commencing our programme. They can also help you assess your Diastasis Recti if need be.

Post natal pilates

“MatWorks has significantly improved my core after it was damaged following a difficult pregnancy and birth. It is wonderful to work alongside my daughter, especially as I think it so important for our children to see us being active. Phoebe is amazing. She is great at scaffolding, gradually building us up to a new level of fitness, strength & flexibility. Even now it continues to be a weekly challenge and I always notice the parts we have worked for days after.

I would highly recommend MatWorks to anyone looking to regain their core strength and pelvic floor after having a baby.”
