FAQs

How do I sign up?

It is quick and easy to sign up. Click here and fill in the sign up form. Then you will have access to your own personal dashboard, all the content and the Toolbox will be on it's way to you!

Can I purchase before birth?

Yes you can. You can watch the introductory videos, learn about how to create your own postpartum plan and know the recipes and right food to buy before the birth. However, it doesn’t matter whether you start pre or post-birth as it is never too late to think about your own postpartum experience.

Can I purchase at 4 weeks or 5 weeks postpartum?

Absolutely! Our content is there for your emotional and physical wellbeing long-term. All the content is relevant to you during those first 12 weeks postpartum and beyond. Whenever you sign up you will find content that is valuable to you.

Do I have to complete the content in a certain way?

Once you sign up you have access to all the content within the programme. The programme is available from before birth, and you have membership for the entire year postpartum which will give you access to content that suits each stage of your postpartum journey.

There are 5 pillars to the programme; mindset, reflection, recovery, movement and nutrition. These pillars encompass your emotional and physical wellbeing and provide the support you need in the postpartum period. For each pillar you will have content from our support team, to watch or listen to, at your own pace. The content has been created to work around you and your baby; you can do the breathing exercises whilst holding or feeding your baby; you can listen to the nutrition podcast whilst on a walk or during that 2am feeding frenzy! Our one ask; that you give a little bit of time each day to your own mindset, reflection, recovery, movement and nutrition. Your body and your baby will thank you for it.

We have created Postpartum Plan as a daily programme as we believe that pacing the content and providing some structure gives you the feeling of daily support; we want to provide you nurture and care for the long-term! Furthermore:

It takes at least 30 days to form a habit. After that time, looking after YOU will become a subconscious daily act.

Committing to yourself for the long-term will automatically allow your body to believe that you are supporting its recovery; it relaxes, exits fight or flight mode and allows the body’s own amazing self healing process

So it is recommended to invest in the programme and its approach if possible to really lay the foundation needed to protect, recover and restore.

In short:

  • We provide a programme structure for you, with daily acts of self-care, for you to follow
  • We also provide a template that you can create yourself, fitting into your life and your needs. You may want to complete the nutrition pillar first, or do all the physio content in one go..
  • If you miss a day, that’s ok! Sometimes it’s good to miss a day as you realise how a small act of self-care can have such a massive impact on you when you do invest the time.
  • You have access to the entire dashboard to watch the videos or listen to the podcasts at your own speed. If you want to complete everything in 10 days or 100 days; it is up to you!
  • We provide weekly live sessions to answer your questions, support you on your journey and offer further techniques to help you during your postpartum period.

Are there people on hand to support me if I have questions?

You will be automatically added to a Private Facebook group where you can speak to other like-minded mamas about the programme. The Postpartum Team will be on the group twice a week to answer your questions then and you can always email us at hello@postpartumplan.co.uk

You will also have access to a live session once a week with one of your support team or special guests; to answer questions, do a short relaxation session together or provide further nutrition, self-care or postpartum advice.

Surely I can just find all this information on Google?

We all did the ‘Google at 3am’. Whilst we are lucky to have so much information at our fingertips it can actually become a poisoned chalice; we are overwhelmed by the information out there and cannot work out who to trust and the time spent online can cause anxiety.

The content we provide isn't available on Google or YouTube because it is done by experts exclusively for Postpartum Plan. We are bringing experts who you usually pay to see in clinics or studios to your home.

Is there a live element to the programme?

Yes, you will get a weekly live Q&A or class with one of the practitioners or guest experts. Lives have included:

  • Movement with Gemma
  • Diastasis recti masterclass
  • Physio with Megan
  • Physio Q&A with Clare Bourne
  • Mama burn out with Gaby Kimchi
  • Positive psychology with Francesca
  • GP Q&A with GP Beth
  • Nutrition masterclass with our nutritionist Jess
  • Breath-work with Emma
  • Reflexology class with Meg

And much more!

What happens if I miss a day?

It happens! Each day’s activities should take 5 - 40 mins maximum so you should hopefully find the time to invest in yourself. And the content we have created can be easily consumed whilst feeding, holding, or on walks with your baby; we would love for you to involve your baby in Postpartum Plan! But if you miss a day it doesn’t matter, you have the content forever so you have time to pick it up again. Sometimes it is also good to miss a day as you realise how a small act of self-care can have such a massive impact on you when you do invest the time.

How much does it cost?

We are providing all of this for just £35 a month for the first three months, £15 a month thereafter, including the Toolbox and access to the Postpartum Village.

This includes:

Women's Health Physio with exercises to help you heal, stabilise and rehabilitate. Options for abdominal and vaginal birth recovery.

Postpartum Doula with a Postpartum workbook exclusively created for Postpartum Plan

Yoga and breath-work classes to heal you from the inside out

Pilates classes to connect back to your body postpartum (all movements safe pre 6 week check)

A Toolbox sent to your door with everything you need to support you emotionally and physically postpartum. This includes a massage ball, pilates ball, journal, recipe cards and more

Access to weekly live sessions, a private Facebook Group and weekly newsletters

We wanted to make Postpartum Plan accessible to as many people as possible. The fact is that access to these experts and the content they provide is worth over £2,000. We provide payment options for you; you can pay in full, in instalments or as a gift voucher for someone you care for.

How long do I have access for?

You have access for your entire Fourth Trimester (12 weeks postpartum). You can start from before birth, so once you submit your due date we adjust your membership for you. Of course, you can also access Postpartum Plan after you have given birth and enjoy the content for 90 days from whenever you sign up.
