Hi, I'm Anita Lambert the creator of the Bump to Birth course, owner of Holistic Health Physiotherapy and co-host of the To Birth & Beyond podcast. I'm a mom of two, a pelvic health and orthopaedic 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 assists 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 against it or 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 course!
"I feel more at ease going into this third birth experience. I know my options, how my consent and advocacy is just as important as the physical part of birth, but also how to manage symptoms. I have confidence in my body and my mind that I'll have a positive birth experience even if it doesn't go according to my preferences. I've had symphysis pubis pain (SPD) in my two previous pregnancies and so far have been able to avoid acute symptoms with the help of the relaxation poses for pelvic pain in the Bump to Birth course."
- Martine C, 24 weeks pregnant
"I feel a lot more prepared for this birth. I didn't get the opportunity to go into labour and have my baby naturally the first time due to her being in a breech position so I am hoping this time around will be different. I have been so mentally prepared for all the various ways things can happen that no matter what route we go I will go into it confidently and with an open mind.
At this stage in pregnancy I'm already treating my pelvic floor mindfully and am preparing it each and everyday through simple day to day activities. I struggled a lot in the beginning with pelvic pain, I have been practicing the exercises and postures which has helped tremendously compared to my last pregnancy!
Anita provided us with so many invaulable tools to prepare for birth that I feel so much more calm, confident and at ease about everything in this pregnancy. "
- Jenny W, 23 weeks pregnant with 2nd baby
"It’s been so helpful to learn about pushing, tearing and birth interventions – I feel more prepared for my second birth. I wish I had this knowledge with my first!”"
- Amy H, 15 weeks pregnant, 2nd time mom

"This program has influenced the way that I approach the pelvic floor discomfort I have experienced in my pregnancy. Now that I understand to a greater degree how my body is coping with pregnancy, I feel that I have tools to address these issues with hope. I learned that I can take back some control during pregnancy to stay informed and ask for help regarding any issues that arise. I feel encouraged to practice pelvic floor exercises that will ultimately help me prepare for birth. I'm also so thankful for the postpartum content Anita provided!"
- Marilee F, 33 weeks pregnant, 1st time mom
"I know that you can never be too prepared for birth. The information in the Bump to Birth course including various breath techniques and labour and birth positions are invaluable in my future birth. I absolutely feel more prepared!"
- Hayley C, 24 weeks pregnant, fourth pregnancy
"I really enjoyed the Bump to Birth program and found all the information on labour, birth positions, how to do perineal massage and preparing the pelvic floor for delivery really useful. I've struggled with pelvic girdle pain and found the exercises made such a difference! After seeing a pelvic health physiotherapist in person - it turns out I need to focus on relaxing my pelvic floor rather than strengthening it - something I would not have known if Anita hadn't encouraged this. I'm now using all the pelvic floor relaxation suggestions from Anita to better prepare for labour."
- Emma J, 31 weeks pregnant, 1st time mom

Frequently Asked Questions
"The pelvic floor strategies from the Bump to Birth course helped me be able to empty my bladder more completely in pregnancy, reducing the many extra trips to the bathroom – big win!
This course made such a difference in my second birth. I was able to articulate my fears about labour and birth to my husband with the information from module 3 and I used the birth preference document to help me go through a lot of different potential labour scenarios in my mind. This made it so much easier to face something that was not my preference and stay present in the moment.
I used a lot of the comfort measures in labour from the course which I didn’t know were options in my first birth. The bonus birth affirmation meditation track that I listened to daily during pregnancy helped me stay present during our drive to the hospital while in labour and not get too caught up in the pain and what would happen next.
When it came to pushing, I was able to connect with my pelvic floor while taking direction from my midwife. Before this course and seeing a pelvic health physiotherapist, I couldn’t even describe where my pelvic floor was never mind using it during birth. Such a wonderful gift - thank you!"
