Hi, I’m Rebecca Aldridge - but call me Bex! I am a qualified Physio with almost 20 years experience in my field. I also have a Masters Degree to compliment my Physio qualification which puts me in the best position to help new mums; this is something I love doing!
The idea of Health2Mama came to me after going on the journey of pregnancy myself and feeling like there was something missing. Something that could really help the physiological side of things that lots of new mums don’t often talk about.
After giving birth to my sweet daughter Aria, I realised there was a lack of professional physio help out there that could be easily picked up and performed at home. And so, Health2Mama was born. An easy to use, super informative and home-based APP that you can now use to combat any issues you may be facing during pregnancy.
With my helpful new APP, you will have all the tools you need to start an exercise regime safely during your pregnancy. I understand how hectic life can get, especially with all the stress of preparing for a baby!
The great thing is the workouts are just 20 minutes long.
You may be wondering if this is long enough but having trained as a mum myself and trained so many mums it’s true.
Regular 20 min workouts that mix core muscle training, toning and movement is all you need to keep healthy during your pregnancy.
No equipment is needed and the workouts are safe and effective for any stage of pregnancy (as long as consent to exercise by your medical practitioner).
During pregnancy you will notice that your body changes - a lot. Not only is there the addition of a baby-shaped bump, but internally your body has been readying itself for the very special 9 months ahead.
Throughout this journey, there is an increase in your intra-abdominal pressure (the pressure within the abdominal cavity). This places more pressure on your pelvic floor and can lead to uncomfortable pains, along with a loss of bladder control.
As the journey of pregnancy continues, expecting mamas will also experience something known as Diastasis Recti. This is essentially the separation of your ab muscles and it’s extremely common. The connective tissue will begin to stretch as your body makes room for your new little bundle of joy.
With the help of the Health2Mama APP, you can learn how to combat problems associated with the various stages of pregnancy. For example you will learn how to deal with bad posture, along with some helpful breathing techniques to ease any pregnancy pains
Health2Mama was born out of necessity and the desire to help others. I am passionate about helping new mamas as I’ve been through the process myself and I know what it takes to feel comfortable during pregnancy.
As a physio, personal trainer and pilates instructor - I fully understand how the body reacts and responds to certain exercises and movements. The Health2Mama APP had its foundations built on many years of specialised research. This has provided informative, helpful and, more importantly, practical advice and training for you to use as your own.
I can help you improve your mobility, increase your pelvic floor control and strengthen those core ab muscles. In turn, this will lead to a better overall level of fitness which creates a happier way of life.
You will receive access to a user friendly APP, filled with a bunch of easy to follow workouts that can be performed from the comfort of your own home.
I was really worried about exercising when pregnant but Bex made me feel safe and confident and I ended up having more tone and strength during my pregnancy than before
I had issues with feeling weak and pain in my back when pregnant but keeping active with the Pregnancy workouts helped to make me feel stronger and keep my pain under control by helping me work on the core muscles
In my experience of training soon-to-be mamas, I have found that willpower is a real issue when it comes to exercising.
Your body is adapting to these new changes, everyday menial tasks seem to get progressively harder and the last thing you want to do is exercise. I totally understand and I personally know how it feels. It’s tough!
After speaking to my clients and asking them about courses they had previously enrolled on, I quickly figured out why they were so eager to give up before they had even begun. The majority of the courses were too complicated, too repetitive or just too confusing.
With Health2Mama, you only need 20 minutes per day and you can choose from 10 easy-to-follow workouts. The supporting advice is clear and concise and it teaches you the base knowledge for you to carry on and feel confident.

The beauty of Health2Mama is that you only need yourself and some level of personal commitment. You may wish to invest in a yoga mat - but otherwise these exercises can all be performed at home comfortably on a carpeted floor or rug.
Our exercises have minimum impact on space usage and require little more than a mat. This makes it easy to perform the movements for everybody regardless of available space.
Health2Mama exercises can be performed at any time of the day. The idea is that it can be convenient for you and work around your schedule.
There are no minimum requirements to enjoy the Health2Mama APP. The workouts have been designed specifically for new mamas, and the focus is on easing you back into exercise slowly. When you start to feel stronger and more confident, we have alternative plans with harder workouts.
