Hi, I'm Anita Lambert the creator of the Bump to Birth Method and co-host of the To Birth & Beyond podcast.
I'm a mom of two, a perinatal pelvic health physiotherapist with a focus on prenatal and postpartum care and am one of the select few physiotherapists in Canada to complete physiodoula training which blends orthopaedic physiotherapy expertise and birth doula support and now assist this course for other physiotherapists in Canada.
I'm passionate about helping you connect more with your body including pelvic floor plus keep you active and comfortable during pregnancy while you prepare for birth which will give you a head start on your postpartum recovery.
Having gone through two pregnancies, births and postpartum recoveries myself, I know how confusing information can be online about pregnancy exercise, pelvic floor health and preparing for birth. Generally the only information given is to do hundreds of Kegels and maybe perineal massage.
I hear daily from expecting and new moms “why did no one tell me?’ about what our body might experience - whether aches, pains, leaking urine with exercises or vaginal tearing or recovering from a Cesarean birth.
No one can guarantee how your birth will go. However having worked with hundreds of expecting moms in my physiotherapy practice plus going through my own experiences, I've seen how working together with your body (rather than ignoring it) benefits not only you in pregnancy but also during birth and your postpartum recovery.
This is why I created the Bump to Birth Method!
