“Since 1999, I’ve worked with women dealing with diastasis recti. One of the responsibilities of my first job was to teach an abdominal/core class.  I realized that the majority of the women in the class had diastasis recti and didn’t even know it. They showed up specifically to “flatten the tummy” and complained of a “pooch that never went away”. They had been doing all of the wrong exercises for years after having their children. I wondered how many other women out there were dealing with the same thing, but didn’t have access to the right exercise and lifestyle information. Wendy Powell has come up with a way to reach many women all over the world! It’s wonderful to see that she has put together such a comprehensive MUTU System for women that’s accessible at all times. I endorse this program and am starting to implement it into my private practice for my women’s health physical therapy patients and fitness clients.”

“MUTU system is an amazing, step-by-step, detailed program for prenatal and post-partum care. Every mom to be, new and experienced mom should follow this routine to gain a better understanding of the body and a strong and stable core.”

“At last – a safe, fun, achievable and  most importantly effective exercise program for Mums that really covers all the bases. Wendy’s passion and expertise shine through the whole program, she really knows her stuff, is refreshingly honest and a great motivator. Women’s Health Physiotherapists routinely assess  treat Rectus Divarification  + Pelvic Floor dysfunction, but there are few really good  + safe training systems out there that not only help both these issues long-term but also cover nutrition, posture retraining, general strength and fitness work too – MUTU really is a complete holistic package. My patients frequently go on to use it after they have finished treatment with me, and  love how it takes them to the next level and how it is completely possible to do – even with a baby (or 4!) at home and minimal time on their hands. I can’t recommend it more.”

“I think the MUTU Program is great. I LOVED your explanation at the start. So simple and so functional! The breathing info and audios are also excellent and what I am trying to teach all my clients everyday!! Again, really well explained and I am so glad you addressed it. I really love how you incorporate hip/pelvic stability early on, as no matter how many pelvic floor exercises a mum may need to do, these are movements/postures mums need everyday. I also love your Posture Tips and how you stress and educate about no more sit-ups or planks…thank you! I think it’s a really great programme, especially for women who are more comfortable exercising in their homes or don’t feel like they can get out with babies and small children. The programme is very good value, and for patients attending physio, it would be a great compliment to their treatment. I think it’s an excellent program and I will tell my clients about it! Thanks for allowing me to review this. You can see your passion for this field and how on-the-ball you are with your information, especially in relation to relating it to function and daily life!”

“As a Women’s Health Physiotherapist it’s great to have such a positive programme to refer mums to. The principles of the programme encompass all health aspects of the post-natal period. The exercises are simple to follow and easy to perform at home requiring minimal equipment.

The phased exercise programme allows the abdominal and pelvic floor muscles to strengthen after the physical strains of pregnancy and childbirth in a sensible manner, promoting closure of a rectus abdominus diastasis and improved core strength to help resolve and prevent lower back and pelvic girdle pain. Wendy has a wealth of knowledge on the changes to your body after pregnancy and childbirth and her approach is not only evidence based but very motivational.

Often mums don’t know where to start on getting back to exercise after having a baby and MUTU System is a great place to start. I don’t hesitate to recommend this programme to my patients.”

“I was initially introduced to MUTU System by one of my patients, a fitness instructor and mom of 3 who used MUTU after her last pregnancy. She started the system immediately after delivery and found significant improvement in her posture, comfort, and core strength after several months of dedicated practice. After she told me about her experience, I reviewed Wendy’s system myself and was immediately drawn to her focus on the mind-body connection and the way she helps moms “get to know” their core again.

I see moms in my plastic surgery practice all the time who are just a few months out from delivery and looking to make their pregnant-appearing belly go down. I always recommend that they start with non-surgical treatment before considering surgery, and Wendy’s MUTU System is my go-to recommendation.

If a woman still has significant muscle separation and a bulging belly after completing her core strengthening, then we start to consider surgery. Even when I am planning to surgically repair a woman’s diastasis, I still find value in having them do the program as a precursor to surgery. When a woman comes in for surgery with a healthy body and strong core, she recovers faster and better from the actual procedure! MUTU System can be a great adjunct to a tummy tuck and surgical diastasis repair.”

I am a pelvic floor physical therapist and treat many women who are pregnant as well as post partum. One thing that I always remind myself and other patients is that “Once post partum, always post partum.” As a pelvic floor physical therapist, we see many women with residual bladder, bowel, sexual, pelvic pain issues that have accumulated over time since having kids. They think these issues came from nowhere but often it was a result of weakness or tension in muscles that were left untreated for so long. Often many moms are so good about taking care of their family and taking care of themselves is left last on the list.
I absolutely love the MUTU system and its empowering message to women. I appreciate that they tell women it is never too late to start exercising and returning to a more healthy lifestyle and regaining your body. I like that MUTU doesn’t emphasize a goal of getting 6 pack abs but rather just learning to love your body again. I am 5 months post partum and knew from my line of work the importance of taking things easy and exercising to intensities at a graduated pace. MUTU is very good about taking things nice and slow and perfecting form rather than a lot of high intensity exercises in the beginning. It goes through exercises in a pace and quality that I give my post partum patients. I love that it also stresses the importance of safety and making modifications for those with a diastasis recti or prolapse. It also is a whole body system and discusses the importance of posture, body alignment, stress, and diet. Also, Wendy Powell’s soothing voice, relaxing music, and high quality videos is a plus!

“I am a huge fan and advocate of MUTU System for all mummies, regardless of when they gave birth. Wendy Powell has provided an accessible and much needed service in the fitness sector for postpartum women.

The MUTU System covers fundamentals such as posture, breathing, core stability and functional movement with a holistic twist incorporating nutrition and lifestyle advice. The best part is MUTU System is so affordable for women and a great adjunct to physiotherapy.

I highly recommend every mummy invest in MUTU System to learn more about their bodies and how to keep their bodies strong and healthy after birth.”

“It’s so refreshing to finally have a fitness programme that as a Women’s Health Physiotherapist I would be happy to recommend to my patients. MUTU System provides a wealth of sound, evidence-based information. It is clear that Wendy really understands the impact of pregnancy and birth on women’s bodies as well as the importance of structured exercise programmes, at the right level, with an emphasis on the core. This is so refreshing and very much needed. So often, new mums have symptoms, feelings and sensations for which they are not prepared. As a women’s health physiotherapist I regularly see mums with back pain, pelvic floor issues (such as leaking and prolapse), as well as rectus abdominus diastasis. Understandably, mums are really keen to get back into shape after having a baby but often go down the wrong path because so little exists to support them on their safe journey back to fitness. As a result women can end up doing themselves more harm than good. Wendy’s blogs are easy to understand and are written in a way that mums can really relate to. Her holistic approach which takes into account posture, alignment, the core and nutrition is exceptional. Her programmes are realistic, achievable, safe and effective. Wendy really knows her stuff and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending any new mums to get involved with MUTU System and often recommend it to many of my patients.”

“Wendy’s system is based on sound principles and is a great start for women keen to restore their abdominal function with a view to getting back to being active. It’s safe and certainly something I’d recommend for women with diastasis.”


Women’s Health Physiotherapist at Sue Lewis Antenatal, London

“I am amazed at the number of post-natal mothers referred to me with divaricated Recti [diastasis recti] and pendulous abdomen who have been exercising “hard” with personal trainers or in the gym. After correcting their technique I suggest they continue their rehabilitation at home with the MUTU System programme which is excellent for re-training their core and posture using researched based exercises. I also thoroughly recommend the MUTU System programme to my early post-natal mothers after they have finished my beginners post-natal course so they can continue safely at home with appropriate exercise and nutritional advice.”

“As a Physiotherapist who solely treats pregnant and postnatal women for common postnatal conditions, the MUTU system really ticks all the boxes for me.

Women can feel confident that they are following a safe and effective program which has their care very much in mind. There are reminders of what to look out for when things don’t feel right and when to seek professional help. I love the fact in includes some great modifications for typical pregnancy and postnatal related conditions such as pelvic girdle pain and pelvic organ prolapse.

There are also lots useful stretches for tight hips and upper back which should suit the usual new mum aches and even has some meditation in there to calm the busy mind.

I also loved the constant referral to breathing properly and alignment which is key to connecting with your PF and deep abdominals.

I would recommend it to any of my clients who were looking for an accessible and safe postnatal program to do at home.”

Physical Therapist, Sullivan Physical Therapy, Austin, Texas. The host of PT Below The Waist podcast

“I am a pelvic floor physical therapist and one of my favorite things about my job is empowering women and guiding them through the postpartum experience so that they can feel confident in themselves and their ability to move and exercise. I believe that the postpartum stage (no matter where you are in it) is a vulnerable time for women and a lot of people do not realize that they do not have to settle for urinary leakage, pelvic heaviness, pelvic pain or diastasis recti. Wendy Powell’s MUTU System gives women the ability to take charge of their bodies. It validates their feelings of frustration with their current abilities and gives them hope for change, and that hope and empowerment is one of my favorite parts of the program.
As I went through the MUTU program, I found that it really checked all the boxes that you would want for an exercise program. It is most importantly safe. MUTU has clear explanations of modifications to make if a woman has pelvic prolapse, is pregnant, or has pain. The focus of MUTU is not just squeeze, squeeze, squeeze the pelvic floor/abdomen, but also focuses on relaxing the pelvic floor which is an important component of then being able to squeeze and strengthen the core and avoiding pelvic pain. The program also addresses posture, biomechanics and diet which are often times over looked, but an important part of treating the whole body! Lastly, the design is simple and easy to use and a good complement to physical therapy”

I work with postnatal women everyday, most of whom are keen to return to exercise but have pelvic floor dysfunction, back pain or diastasis recti. MUTU system is a truly fabulous programme. It demonstrates safe exercises based on strengthening the core for postnatal mums with lots of evidence based information. The exercises are easy to follow, effective and progressive. Wendy’s dedication and serviceto the ‘Mutu Mamas is constantly reflected in her frequent Q and A sessions which are accessible to each and every member and are no doubt invaluable. As a Women’s Health Physiotherapist it is great to finally have a programme that I can confidentially and frequently recommend to my clients.
