If you are having struggles after giving birth, don’t accept them, this is NOT the new normal!

suffering woman (1)

Women around the world are suffering silently from the back and pelvic pain and enduring debilitating symptoms like incontinence, pain and pressure in their pelvic area, mummy pouch caused by abdominal separation, painful intimacy and nonexistent orgasms.

If you are one of those mums, you are in the right place to finally find healing.

Here is the truth.

You can achieve a strong core and leak-proof pelvic floor. You can get abs and drool-worthy 6 pack even if you had multiple births.

In my groundbreaking mum training program every mum can get a strong core and defined abs, pelvic floor with zero leaks EVER and seal Diastasis Recti FOREVER.

If you are ready to put in 12 weeks of work with me to get a rock-solid core and pelvic floor and burn all the fat you got then I have just one last question for you...

Are you ready to transform your life?

Who am I?

I am Renata Sanko, personal trainer and a certified postnatal specialist with years spent on education and research on how to help women heal their body after birth. 

I have dedicated myself to help other women to regain and heal their body after having a baby…

But it wasn’t always like it is today…

I had the healing journey that I had to go through.

renata-before-pregnant (1)

Years ago, I struggled badly with my body and endured years of painful and embarrassing symptoms.

I gave birth to 4 kids in 8 years, gained over 50 kg (110 lbs) during my pregnancies, I looked 12 weeks pregnant with mummy pouch that I couldn’t get rid off.

My last postpartum recovery was “pure torture”.

I had demanding baby and lots of breastfeeding issues early on, my body was aching and my nutrition was a mess.

I developed postpartum anxiety and feared to even get out of the house…

I had four fingers wide Diastasis Recti and huge mummy pouch that made me wear pregnancy clothes for 6 months after birth.

I had to leave my house wearing pads because I leaked urine when I laugh or sneeze.


I could barely do everyday things like lifting my kids and running around with them in the park.

My libido was zero and I felt massive guilt every time I told my partner I am not into it.

No one ever warned me that postpartum will hit me so hard and how it can affect every single part of my life.

I struggled hard!

*Results vary depending on starting point, goals, and effort.

But when I finally decided to make my life better and find out what is wrong with my body, no one had any idea what’s wrong with me.

Every doctor told me I am perfectly healthy and all I need is just to start working out and go on a diet to lose my belly fat.


All they said to me is to do my Kegels and that this is normal after so many kids.

This is NOT normal!

Sadly, this is the reality for many mums today. All they get is an instruction to do Kegels or to find themselves a good surgeon.

If this is your experience, you are not alone…

So many times I have heard the same story:

No one told me!

Unfortunately, women and new mums are being ignored by our medical community. 

No one is listening to a new mum after birth, all you got after birth is a 6-week check-up where they barely see you and all they talk about is contraception.

After giving birth, a woman becomes invisible to the medical community and our society. All the attention goes to the baby.

But we are still women with needs and desires. 


After years of research, I learned four things why mums can’t get rid of the mummy pouch and can’t heal their core and pelvic floor...

Mummy pouch is often caused by Diastasis Recti or abdominal separation.

This is widening of a gap in your abdominal muscles and it is happening at Linea Alba, the connective tissue in the middle of the abdomen. 

The tissue is widening and stretching and losing its elasticity.

Many mums want to lose weight after birth and start with rigorous exercises that will actually make their condition worse!

Many exercises like crunches and sit-ups should be avoided when dealing with abdominal separation. 

By doing this kind of exercises that many personal trainers and influencers recommend mums are only making their condition much worse!

Mums endure painful and embarrassing symptoms all the time!

Many mums also face symptoms like leaking urine when sneezing and coughing, incontinence, pressure down there, backache and bad posture.

They are not enjoying sex like they used to before kids!

This is often caused by Diastasis Recti.

doctor bw mobile

Doctors don’t assess mothers for pelvic issues or Diastasis Recti!

Many mums don’t know there is a solution because no one told them! They don’t have to endure these symptoms.

It is never late to start healing!

There is so many wrong information out there and some you might even get them from your doctor.

You need to know about these 3 myths that are so common many mums believe them:

binder bw (1)

Binder will help you get a flat tummy after birth!

Belly binders are sold everywhere to new mums and they are supposed to help with closing and preventing Diastasis Recti after birth.

But they are NOT going to heal you Diastasis Recti nor strengthen your muscles.

All they do is hold everything in and give the support to your lower back, but they don’t teach you how to use your muscles to aid the core strengthening.

Always trust your doctor!

Many doctors, OBGYNs and even midwives have no clue about women health issues after birth. 

Some will not even acknowledge that you have real problems and might even say that this comes from your anxiety problems. That all you need is to relax.

Others will try to sell you expensive medications, supplements or even surgical procedures.

doctor no 2 (1) (1)
tummy tuck bw (1) (1)

Mummy tuck or surgery is your only hope!

Invasive procedures like abdominoplasty are rarely really necessary and most women will be able to heal their body without surgery. 

Surgeries have their risks and can cause more problems than they will solve. 

While surgeries are sometimes very much needed, they should stay in the last resort. You should FIRST try the techniques that I will show you in The Kangaroo Method.

I am very sad to see so many women suffering for years without knowing that there is a solution.

Here is what I've heard them say...

No one knows what is wrong with me, but I feel there has to be something wrong...

My doctor never assessed me for Diastasis Recti and I have mummy pouch that is not going away. I tried everything, went to new mum bootcamps but nothing is happening, I even feel worse... Is there any hope for me?

I don't feel like myself anymore!

If this sounds familiar, I just want you to know:

There is a simple solution...

The Kangaroo Method helped many women to get their body and their self-confidence back!

*Results vary depending on starting point, goals, and effort.

Nicole lost 9.5kg (21 lbs) in 12 weeks

I'm 59 this week, I've got 5 children and I never thought that I would be able to get my stomach back. Thank you!
Sarah Reeves
mum of 5 kids
What I benefited most from are the simple & easy to follow exercises that are nice and gentle, particularly for the core area.
Leah Clark
on week #9 of TKM

It helped them to get themselves back.

To run after their kids with zero leaks.

To jump on the trampoline with their family again.

To stop feeling embarrassed because they can't be a part of family fun because they will pee themselves.

Mums can finally feel confident, happy and STRONG!

Imagine what could you do if you had a fit body that supports you?

Start lifting weights and sculpting your body until perfect.

Go canoeing, hiking and running with your family with no fear of peeing yourself and no need for urgent bathroom visits.

Running a marathon. (Yes, it is possible!)

Here's why this is possible...

Your core and pelvic floor muscles are your center.

When you learn HOW to use them correctly you WILL take control over your entire body.

I want for every woman to get back in control of her body and her life!

By becoming a mum, you haven’t stopped existing as a woman and all you need to is to learn how to be in control again.

If you want to improve your life, get rid of your symptoms...

If you want to feel confident again and regain control of your body...

If you are FINALLY determined to make a change in your life...

The Kangaroo Method is a place to start!

It's time to gain control over your mum body and demand success!

There is no guesswork in The Kangaroo Method because I got you covered from the moment you sign up for this training program.

The Kangaroo Method is not an endless series of heel drops that you can find on Instagram and YouTube channels.

renata squat (1)

My UNIQUE method addresses your entire body to aid core and pelvic floor healing.

We start from teaching you to FIND and awake your pelvic floor and deepest layer of abdominal muscles.

We then ACTIVATE them and CONNECT them through breath and movement to give your body one of a kind, whole-body approach to heal and STRENGTHEN the core and pelvic floor.

The Kangaroo Method is a whole-body approach to heal Diastasis Recti and strengthen the pelvic floor.


We use our unique F.A.C.S. system to get you from zero to ready for anything you have ever dreamed you will do.


Find is where you start.

To be able to do any work on our saint parts, we need to find them.

Yeah, I know that you think you know where they sit, but can you really feel them? What about your abdominal muscles?

After going through TKM you will definitely be able to find your womanly parts.

Activate is the next level.

After you found your sleeping muscles you will need to activate them.

This requires not only physical work but mental work and a strong focus on what you are doing.

You will be able to awake those muscles even in your dream.



Now we'll connect them!

Connect is where we take your abdominal and pelvic muscles to the next level.

We connect them through the power of your breath.

Your entire body will work without you even moving.

Getting stronger!

Strengthen is where the real work is done. We will add movement and tension and we will sculpt those abs and torch the fat.


When I was creating The Kangaroo Method, I knew and believed that there has to be a better way for women to learn how to heal their body than paying hundreds to doctors and slimming classes in hope that will solve their problems.

The Kangaroo Method is a complete and life-changing exercise program made for mums, whether you gave birth a month ago or 10 years ago.

It was specifically developed for ending struggles that many mums around the world are enduring silently.

This is not your regular exercise program. 

It is women’s only online platform where you will learn HOW to exercise, how to change your daily routine to aid the healing and what you need to STOP doing to not ruin your progress.

The Kangaroo Method is simple, step by step, science-based method to teach you how to restore trust in your body, to figure out what is really happening with your body and learn you how to use it correctly to finally get the results you need and want.

How The Kangaroo Method works?

Core & Pelvic Floor Workouts

You will get core and pelvic floor specific workouts spread out over three months. 

Every four weeks you will get new and more progressive exercises so you can gradually and safely progress from level to level. 

When I say core work, I don’t mean traditional ab exercises. There is not a single crunch or sit-up in this program! 

Every single workout you get from me is guided so you know what to do every second of it. I will be holding your hand through this program. 

Total-Body Workouts

You will get a complete total-body training plan to lose fat and build lean muscle. 

And you will get a new one, every four weeks. 

This is a progressive training program that will increase in intensity every four weeks. The workouts are high intensity but low impact.That means no ‘hard on mums core and pelvic floor’ movements.

Effective but safe workouts that you can follow along. 

Education & Information

In our Kangaroo Guide you will get all the education you need to really understand why are you here and how to speed up your progress by incorporating lifestyle changes and recommended activities. 

I will give you recommendations and guidance about nutrition, supplements, body posture, recommended activates and more.

The Kangaroo Guide is loaded with foundational information, instructional videos, downloadable PDFs, workbooks and cheat sheets. 

Community Power

You will also get non-stop support and access to our onsite community & member-only Facebook group.

You will be supported from the moment you sign up for this program.

I will be answering all the questions you might have and you will get access to our exclusive & private community of mums to share your journey with. 

Daily Accountability

Lack of motivation is one of the main reasons people give up on fitness programs. But NOT you! 

You will receive daily accountability emails to push you and motivate you to do your scheduled workout. You will have access to your individual training roadmap to guide you through this program. 

Every mum in our program is supported and I will basically hold your hand through it. We can do this together! 

Every mum can get abs again - don’t let age and number of kids define your success!

I'm a living proof that you can have an amazing and strong body even after so many kids... (I have 4 kids!)

And everything I did to get here I shared with you in...

The Kangaroo Method

The ultimate program for mums.

What you'll get when you join The Kangaroo Method:

Core specific exercises to strengthen your core and pelvic floor and seal your Diastasis Recti. These are done daily for around 15 min per day.

How much is this going to cost me?

I am well aware that cost is a major factor for any mum out there and that times are hard. That’s why I tried my best to keep the price as low as possible so as many mums can have the option of joining this life-changing program as possible.

You can get the full access to the Kangaroo Method for only 149$

This is less than $1.70 per day for a 12-week exercise program! That’s way less money than some binders cost that will do nothing for your health.

And yes, less than a cup of coffee per day!

You can even choose to pay in two interest-free monthly payments and still get this low price! Amazing, right?

Why the price is so low?

I know that so many families are struggling financially as times have never been harder. 

Even though this kind of specialised training, coaching and community is worth at least several hundred dollars, I wanted to make it as accessible as possible so every mum can have a chance to work on their core and their pelvic floor without paying for extraordinary fees that some trainers and therapists ask for.

Frequently asked questions:

There are two parts to The Kangaroo Method, the Core Recovery exercises and the Total-Body workouts. Core Recovery workout will take you around 15 minutes each day and Total-Body workout takes around 30 minutes, but only 5 days a week.

This entire program can be done without buying any special equipment. I do recommend to have some equipment, but you won’t be missing out if you do everything with no equipment at all. The recommended equipment is:

  • Small pilates ball – you can use the kids toy ball instead.
  • Light resistance band – you can use a pair of old tights or leggings instead. In some videos I’m also using a powerbands loop, but feel free to just wrap your resistance band (or tights/leggings) around your legs if you don’t own a loop. I’ve also done so in some exercises.
  • Pair of small dumbbells (optional) – you can use two small water bottles instead.

No, The Kangaroo Method is a program you can do at home, no gym membership needed! There is a limited equipment needed but you can do the program with no equipment at all and still get the results you want. It’s all up to you now!

Yes, it’s never too late to start healing your core. The core muscles work in a similar way as any other muscle in our body. Once we learn how to contract and relax them in a right way great things can happen. I will show you that here…

We don’t recommend the program if you have overactive pelvic floor because the exercises are created to strengthen the pelvic floor in the first place.

We do learn both contacting and lengthening pelvic muscles, but if you have overactive pelvic floor, it might be too challenging to do this correctly.

We recommend visiting womens physical therapist for an individual therapy.

We recommend to start after you are cleared by your doctor for working out. Allow yourself enough time to heal after giving birth and then start when you feel you are ready for it.

Core Recovery Challenge is core only 14-day program. It is created to educate mums and help them start healing their core.

The Kangaroo Method is more comprehensive 12-week program. It includes both core and total body workouts & comprehensive educational guides, as described on this page.

The Kangaroo Method covers posture inside of our Kangaroo Guide over two lessons. We give recommendation and tips on how to improve your posture.

For more in-depth education on posture we suggest looking at out Posture & Alignment Masterclass.

The Kangaroo Method covers nutrition inside of our Kangaroo Guide.

We give recommendation on food choices to follow during the 12 week period.

For more in depth nutrition tips and meal plans we suggest looking at our Nutrition Guide. This is available as an additional purchase with The Kangaroo Method on the next page.

Yes, The Kangaroo Method is fine to do during pregnancy.

Be sure to modify the exercises and take it slow. Whenever there is an exercise with modification make sure to follow the modified version. Don’t rush. Make sure you are cleared for working out in pregnancy by your OB-GYN.

Everyone is different and has a different body and motivation.

I can’t guarantee any specific results or weight loss since this depends on many factors out of my control such as your motivation and food intake, among other things. If you follow the program schedule and don’t skip exercises, do your daily walks and maintain a healthy nutrition and lifestyle you should lose some weight and get the results you want.

The Kangaroo Method is a progressive total-body program and, when done right, it can certainly be very effective!

You get both! Every workout has a follow along video guiding you through the exercises step-by-step. Just click play and start the workout with me. It works perfect on any device and is fully optimized for a mobile phone.
