Meet the Expert behind
The Postpartum Academy

Hi lovely, my name is Anna Scammell.

I’m a Masters-trained Women’s Health & Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist with 13+ years experience. So let’s just say you’re in very good hands!

I believe there’s a major gap in the education & exercises new mums are given compared to what they NEED & DESERVE to ensure a smoother, faster recovery. That’s why I have put together this comprehensive online program.

So far I have educated & empowered THOUSANDS of new mums during their recovery post-birth…and now it’s your turn to experience the same.

Hope to see you inside The Academy! 🙂

Got a burning question?

Anytime! Since the program includes information for immediately after birth, you can start it at the end of your pregnancy or straight after birth.

Alternatively if you are weeks or months postpartum, you can start the program now, as it covers essential education & exercises to guide your recovery from when you have the capacity or motivation to start.

Once you sign up you will get a login & password sent to your email so you can access the Academy immediately! You then make your way through the modules at your own pace.

Yourself, your laptop or phone. 

In some exercise videos you will need a theraband, roller, light dumbbells (or water bottle/can) & plastic bag.

You bet! If you are several months postpartum & just starting to get back into exercise or still struggle with abdominal separation or pelvic floor issues, then this program is the perfect guide to build your strength safely.

No! Commonly second time mums wish they knew more the first time & did things differently, so this program gives every mum the opportunity to have the best recovery possible. 

I created this program knowing that you have a brand new bub taking up a lot of your time! Most of the educational videos are between 10-30 minutes long, but some of the interviews are longer. These you can watch or listen to when you’re feeding bub. 

The exercise videos are around 20 minutes long as I wanted them to be achievable for you to fit into your day.

I highly recommend you watch all the videos, but if you’re struggling with time, you can download the Summary Sheets.

You will be given exercises & strategies to implement into your life to help optimise your recovery.

It’s an education AND exercise program because you need both to have an empowered recovery.

Nope. Having a face-to-face appointment with a qualified Women’s Health Physio at 6 weeks postpartum is essential so they can assess your pelvic floor, any scar tissue and abdominal separation.

Whilst I think this program is the bees knees, I understand that you can’t please everyone. If you are unsatisfied with the program then I will refund your money.

You bet you can!

If you live in Sydney, you have 2 options:

  • Home visits: I bring the appointment to your home (inner suburbs around Sydney). This is a very convenient option when you have a new baby. 
  • Clinic: You can book an appointment at Sevenways Health Centre in North Bondi on 9365 4059.

If you live outside of Sydney:

  • Online Consults: We connect over zoom & I give you individualized advice & education. If you’re rural or overseas & don’t have access to a Women’s Health Physio, this option is for you!

If the above answers didn’t cut the mustard, then please feel free to shoot me your question below…
