POP UP: An Uplifting Guide

Changing the way we manage pelvic organ prolapse.

Hi! We're the creators of POPUp: An Uplifting Guide!

Haley is a strength coach, a perinatal exercise expert, fitness presenter, and mom with POP. Annemarie is a pelvic floor physical therapist with advanced training in issues concerning women's health. Together, we recognized a massive gap in the way we experience, manage, treat, and talk about pelvic organ prolapse. 

We are on a mission to change the narrative on POP. We believe that education that is evidence-guided and empathetically delivered can eliminate fear, offer solutions, and provide educated hope

We created POPUp for our clients, patients, colleagues, and even ourselves; it's the resource we needed. But most importantly, we created POPUp for you. We hope you'll find POPUp to be an uplifting guide that helps you better understand, troubleshoot, and manage your (or your clients') POP. 

Let's manage POP better together!

POPUp courses come with either 12 or 24 weeks of exercise. POPUpPro is for professionals looking to level up their skills!
