I’m a certified ante and post-natal personal trainer and the author behind pre-natal training guide Mind, Body, Bump; The Complete Plan for an Active Pregnancy. I work with new mums and mums-to-be in London, Dubai and around the world.
I’m fascinated by the beauty of pregnancy and the body’s natural adaptations, and am endlessly advancing and updating my training and knowledge to reflect the very latest guidelines and research. I’ll help you stay active, train safe and prepare for childbirth through all three trimesters. While certain modifications are necessary for the wellbeing of you and your baby, you absolutely can (and deserve to!) feel the benefits of a great workout. I’ll help you find the precious balance of challenging and nurturing your body and bump.
Accelerate your post-natal recovery with my personal coaching. You’ll feel stronger, more energised and enjoy setting aside valuable time that’s just for you. You can begin personal training after your six-week check-up, and I can consult you on which movements may be beneficial earlier in your recovery.
I will perform or advise you through a simple check to assess the status of diastasis recti – separation in the abdominals – and will coach you accordingly to safely and effectively rebuild your core and pelvic floor. I also recommend and work with a number of exceptional women’s heath physiotherapists to help you make a truly informed return to exercise. Many of my post-natal clients have grown stronger and fitter after having a baby than they were before little one’s arrival!
Finding a community of like-minded mums makes all the difference to your sense of wellbeing as a new mum. My signature Stronger Together classes are currently available upon request. Have a group of new mum friends with bodies to strengthen and babies to entertain? Get in touch to request private classes.
I’ve really enjoyed my training with Brit, taking part in her group mum and baby classes and private one-on-one sessions. I wanted to find someone who really knew their stuff on my tentative return to exercise earlier this year following a Caesarean birth and Brit certainly does! Brit was able to adapt exercises to suit my ability and push me to train harder where I could. I also need my exercise to be fun, so thanks Brit for keeping it enjoyable and being so upbeat all the time! I’m looking forward to our next session!
Alexandra, Post-Natal Personal Training
I started a personal training course with Brit when I was about 10 weeks postpartum. I had put on extra weight with my second son, and had quite a difficult birth. I was nervous about how my body would react to training and if I would ever be able to feel like myself again. I met Brit first for a chat about how she could help me and instantly felt as ease and excited about getting back to it. She listened to my desires and anxieties and I was so relieved to hear how her work ethic was about focusing on my physical strength, as well as the emotional gains I would get from incorporating fitness in my life. She wasn’t going to sell me a quick fix bikini body programme that my body couldn’t handle and that was unsafe or unrealistic.
Our sessions were great fun. She came to us at home, the workouts were tough but measured and she kept a close eye on how my body was responding and changing. She bounced my son around if he was ever unsettled, so I could focus on myself for an hour. She was encouraging and enthusiastic. The workouts were different every week and she understood if home pressures meant I didn’t always complete my homework! We moved away from the area and I was so sad I wasn’t able to continue my training with Brit. I would recommend her to anyone.

Brit is an amazing trainer! I started personal training sessions with her after having a baby, and she helped me get back into shape more smoothly than I could have imagined. Brit challenged me safely at every session, always remaining positive and a great motivator. She knew all the right exercises to help me rehabilitate my core and improve my fitness without just jumping around. I definitely recommend her to new mums and anyone else who wants to incorporate fitness as a long-term lifestyle.
Liz, Post-Natal Personal Training
I feel incredibly lucky to have had the opportunity to train with Brit for the past two years. Brit trained me right the way through my pregnancy and continues to train me post-natally. It’s so overwhelming for first time mums to know what is safe and there is a lot of conflicting information out there! I was relieved to have Brit’s expert advice and guidance, and trusted her completely to lead me in trimester appropriate exercises. Safety aside the training was always really enjoyable and her upbeat attitude pulls you through! I also highly recommend her mum and baby classes, where I found a little community of new mums coming together to make a little time for ourselves in the whirlwind of those early months. The babies loved it too of course!
