Welcome to the only step-by-step coaching program designed to help moms heal and strengthen their pelvic floor so they can run again without pain or pelvic floor symptoms.

If you're overwhelmed by the demands of your busy mom life and the physical changes you're experiencing, but you still want to pursue your running goals and reclaim your sense of identity, then this is for you!
I'm ready to get started!

Let me take you on a journey...

16 Weeks to stress-free Running

Do you feel like you need running back in your life so you can reclaim your identity—outside of motherhood?

Don’t get me wrong, I know you love your little one(s), and I also know that there’s just something about getting back to running that lights you up. 

You can’t wait to get out there again–whether it’s solo or with your kids.

The challenge is that you’re not sure what to do beyond kegels or how to work back up to running safely–plus, now you’re maybe dealing with things like pelvic pain, leaking, prolapse or ab separation–which complicates things a bit.

Trust me, I've been there and you’re going to need more than kegels and a few YouTube videos to successfully create a postpartum running routine again.

Which is also why waiting only 6 weeks isn’t going to cut it. Sorry! Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but just because your doctor clears you for running 6 weeks postpartum doesn’t mean your pelvic floor has.

You're going to need to strengthen your pelvic floor–beyond kegels–because it has to be able to withstand the high demands of running. And the good news is, you don’t have to spend hours to do it!

The Return to Run Postpartum Program is for the mom who knows she wants to get back to running AND heal her pelvic floor in the process. Because you just don’t have time to work on these separately.

This is for the mom who knows she needs accountability and direction on what to do and when. Because you have enough to manage that you don’t have the time or expertise to figure it out on your own.

This is for the mom who knows that just as it takes a village to raise a child, it takes guidance and support to help you achieve your running goals and to be the best mom you can for your kids and family.

I’m here for you. 

Heal your pelvic floor. Get back to running. Feel like yourself again. Be the best mom you can be. 

It’s that simple. 

Are you ready?

Yes! I'm ready!!

Laugh, run and play with your family any time

Get ready to simplify the entire process of how you:

Heal your pain and pelvic floor. Free yourself from pelvic pain, leaking, prolapse and abdominal separation.

Start feeling like yourself again. Live your every day life free from stress and worry about your symptoms.

Reconnect and strengthen your core. Build the strength and endurance you need.

Create your new normal. Play with and care for your kids, spouse and home without a second thought.

Return to running after having your baby. Work up to your regular running routine and even sign up for your next event!

Do you ever feel like:

Running again feels SO far away. You wonder how you'll manage it with a baby, a spouse, work, night wakings, feedings around the clock...

You're not really sure where to start. You've already tried a few things, maybe did some kegels, and you're just not feeling any better than before.

If you could just get back to running, everything would be ok. You know that everything would feel right if you could just run again.

So many things are demanding your time and energy. Everyone and everything else seems to come first.

You're worried it's going to take a ton of time. You just don't have the mental energy to try to figure it out right now.

You're not alone

Get the results you crave

Whether you just had your baby or it's been a while, you're more than capable of healing your body to be strong enough to chase after your running dreams and raise a family at the same time.

Rediscover freedom and joy with running again!






this is exactly what I need!

Your postpartum journey can be uncertain

You have so many questions

What’s with the heaviness down there?

Will I ever be able to get by day-to-day without pain, let alone run again?

Will I ever be able to laugh or sneeze again without doing that cross-legged thing?

These are real questions and I can help you, Mama.

How can I find the time to exercise and run with my kids, my work, and a house to take care of?

When you prioritize your health for a happier, healthier you, this shows up in every aspect of your life.

You are SO worth it.

You deserve to feel strong, confident and capable in your own body.

You just want to be able to exercise, play with your kids and run like you want to.

I know it’s hard to balance your role as a Mom. You're busy making sure your kids are fed, learning, and taken care of.

That’s why you're wondering, "How will I find the time to to run again?"

Help is here, you CAN have the freedom you desire

I, and countless other Moms, have gone through exactly what you’re dealing with right now.

The demands on your time are different.
Your body feels different.
And, YES, you can enjoy running like you did before.

This is Megan McClure's Story

A mother of two and avid sports player, Megan came to me with knee pain and leaking issues. Her fitness seemed to plateau and she couldn't play with her kids like she wanted to.

Over the course of just 4 sessions, we worked on Megan’s breathing, muscle coordination and her exercise form. The results were amazing!

Her knee pain resolved

She finally felt the “right” muscles firing when she did her body building work outs, like her lower abs and her glutes

She did a 5k and her running felt great

She no longer experienced leaking

What if you're just 4 sessions away from feeling better, too??

I've helped moms just like you...

"I've been looking for a good exercise program, especially since I had to be on bed rest for part of my pregnancy. As a medical doctor, I didn't want to just get anything from the internet that may or may not be safe...Rachel has true expertise, and her program was just perfect for me! I was surprised that I actually had time to stick to it even in my schedule as a busy mom.

"I love running, hiking, biking and skiing, so I'm not always very nice to my body. Before working with Rachel, so many parts of my body felt broken and in need of repair. For a while, I lived with lower back pain, knee pain, hip pain and I experienced awful pain in my right scapula every time I sneezed. Rachel's level of expertise, knowledge and fresh approach to looking at a woman's body blew me away! I'm no longer experiencing low back pain, hip pain or pain when I sneeze!"

This program is right for you if:

You crave running and are ready to jump-start your running journey

Have limited time to dedicate to your fitness but can’t wait to start feeling like yourself again

There's a running event you have your eye on and you want to be sure that you are up to speed on your training to be able to do it

You're ready to invest in your health, and get back to doing ALL the things you love

This program is NOT for you if:

You're unable to commit 20-30 minutes on most days of the week to exercise

You're not ready to invest into your health, creating habits that will shift you from sluggish to strong

You've accepted your pain and leaking as "normal" (HINT: it's not!) and are ok with not being able to do the things you once could

You don't think you need pelvic floor rehab or that things will just get better on their own.

You think it's normal to pee your pants or have doming of your stomach when you work out and it will just go away with time.

This is Brandi McGarva's story

Brandi had severe SPD (symphysis pubis dysfunction) diagnosed in pregnancy and had to get around using a walker for months.

She was desperate to heal her pelvic pain.

Only 12 weeks into the program, she was able to run and play volleyball for the first time in YEARS without any pelvic issues!

Why is Rachel the best person to guide you?

The perfect blend of expertise & experience

As a mom, I know how limited your time is. Some days it feels impossible to squeeze any more into the day.

As a doctor of physical therapy and pregnancy & postpartum specialist, I've helped countless moms heal their pain and symptoms and get strong again.

As an avid runner since 2006, I've completed a number of various events and distances from 5k to 50k and beyond.

I know that physical movement is healing. I've experienced pelvic floor symptoms and pelvic pain and had to learn how to heal my own body. I've decreased my postpartum return to run time tremendously from my 2nd to my 4th baby and this is what I want to share with you!

I focus on individuality and science. Using a combination of science, research, personal and client experiences and my background as a PT and postpartum exercise specialist, I'll help you get back to where you want to be.

How I got here, from there...

my personal story

I know all about what you’re going through because I was exactly where you are with my second child.

During my second pregnancy, I developed symphysis pubis dysfunction (SPD, also known as PGP or pelvic girdle pain) that caused me tremendous pain and discomfort. The pain was so great that it prevented me from running and living my life normally for over a year and a half!

My pain was limiting my life. I went to my doctor as well as a women's health PT, and talked to my therapist co-workers, all of who threw their hands up, and with no added direction, told me I was doing all the “right” things so I just have to live like this.

I was so angry that I was told “this is it”. According to the medical field at that time, there was nothing more for me to do.

But I knew that something was missing. This couldn't be it. I didn't deserve to live in pain long term. I deserved to get back to running with ease and freedom.

This is why I did ALL the research, took continuing education courses and finally healed my pain so I could get back to living my life pain free!

I started helping Mother Runners because of the lack of true and valid information that surrounds mothers, their physical changes and the healing process for their pelvic floor.

By following my own program, even with pelvic pain, I got back to running after just 3 months after my third and fourth babies!


With the right guidance, I know you can heal your body and get back to running quickly, too!

FAQs

I've tried everything, how do I know this will work for me?

I'm going to be honest with you, nothing in life is a guarantee.

But I can tell you, of the dozens of women I've worked with, there have only been successes. If you're ready to fully commit to yourself and go all-in, you'll see results.

How do I know these exercises are safe for me?

Every exercise has been carefully chosen based on the stage of postpartum healing you're in or the level of strength you’re at to ensure that you will be progressing safely.

Additionally, I have used this program three times myself and have taken previous clients through it with excellent success.

I've never been a runner, can I still do this program?

Yes, absolutely! This program will prepare you not only for getting back to running but running for the first time. In fact, I had a client who did just this!! Not only did she heal her pelvic pain but she became a first time runner!

I am pregnant, would I be able to do this program?

This program is specifically designed for the postpartum mom, but I welcome you to schedule a call with me to see if it's a good fit for you once your baby arrives. This is actually a perfect time to conduct the session and make a decision before you're also managing a newborn!

How long will I have access to the program materials, exercise videos and the VIP Facebook group?

You will have access as soon as you enroll, and access ends when you complete your 16th week of the program.

I am really busy and am not sure I can do the exercises regularly, can I still do the program?

I'm a mom of 4, so I totally get it. This program was designed with that in mind and is totally achievable if you can carve out 20-30 minutes 5-7 days/week.

I will work with you to ensure that you have strategies in place so that you are successful in getting back to running. That said, if you still feel that this is too much to manage right now, you can certainly wait to start when you feel that you can more reliably dedicate your time.

What if I fall behind in my exercises?

The program is designed to be manageable time-wise for busy moms. Modifications are given for almost every exercise, so even if you miss a few days, you can still move on to the next session in the series without issue.

If there is an extenuating circumstance, then we can talk about an extension. The decision will be based on a case-by-case basis.

Do you offer refunds?

As a general rule, I do not. You are paying for a coaching service and electronic materials. My time that I dedicate to you in the program is non-refundable, meaning it's something that I cannot get back.

I'm not sure that I can afford this. Do you offer payment plans?

I would challenge you to ask yourself if it's actual finances holding you back or you're just not feeling comfortable spending money on yourself.

If it's finances, I'd be happy to work with you on a payment plan or to explore ways to find resources to participate. If you're not feeling comfortable, sit with why that is, and ask yourself "Am I willing to step outside my comfort zone to be transformed and meet my goals?"

I'm SO ready to start, but I'm not sure my significant other will be on board.

I love having husbands/significant others join us during a fitting call. In fact, I encourage it!

That way everyone is on the same page, hears the same information and gets all their questions answered. Let's find a time that works for everyone, and if childcare is an issue--have the kids on, too! Believe me, I know how it can be!

I really want the results but I still have questions.

No problem. I know how hard it can be to invest in yourself. Let's jump on a call where we can talk about the best way to help you. Schedule a call with me today.

schedule a discovery call!

Before you found me, I''ll  bet...

You thought it was 'ok' to start running at 6 weeks after you had your baby.

You thought you could just get back out there and wing it.

When you realized you couldn't, you tried looking up exercises or online programs on your own.

When those didn't work, you turned to healthcare providers--maybe a PT or a coach or other specialists--all of whom left you with empty promises and no real tangible results.

You've become frustrated with where you're at now, the amount of time, energy and money you've spent already and you're not really sure investing in another program will be worth it.

I totally hear you. I've been there myself.

Moms usually come to me after the other things they've tried have failed.

You deserve the answers to achieving your best health.

Because when you feel your best, you can show up as your best not only for you, but for your kids and your family.

By getting back to running and becoming your fittest self, you can overcome anything, do anything and be anything you desire.

I can't wait to see you get there,

Rachel
