Essentials by Umi

Essentials by Umi is our FREE online video course for all women. It’s packed full of the often taboo topics which we rarely talk about as women but which are fundamental to our health, throughout our lifespan. The pelvic floor, period health, pooing, sex...we’ve got all this, and lots more, covered in 8 modules, each broken down into bite-sized videos, which you can work through at your own pace, in your own space, and start making improvements to your pelvic health straight away. Dip back in whenever you need a refresher.

Our Essentials course also serves as a foundation for all of our bolt-on courses (Pregnancy by Umi and Postnatal by Umi are available now via Umi Plus membership).

Why is it free?

When we were busily dreaming up our vision for Umi, we made a decision as a team to make Essentials free of charge because we wanted to give as many women as possible the information that they should already know about their bodies, and it was crucial to us that price should not be a barrier. One day, maybe this stuff will be on the school curriculum but, until then, we’ve got your backs.
