Sascha Farley had no idea that the Healthy Mummy would transform nearly every aspect of her life when she signed up to the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge four years ago. Not only did she lose 34 kilos just over a year, but her new lifestyle affected her mindset, her focus, her health, fitness and in turn, that of her family.
“My whole family benefits and we all love it. I’ve finally found a lifestyle and balance that suits us all!”
While pregnant with baby number four, Sascha appeared in the Real Mums Workouts in the Healthy Mummy App, inspiring other pregnant ladies, to move their body safely and enjoy a healthy pregnancy.

Sascha’s Incredible Weight Loss Journey
Sascha found the Healthy Mummy four weeks after her second baby was born via Cesarean Section. Determined to lose her baby weight safely, she opted for the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge where she could manage and meal prep family meals.
Sascha says “I had always gone for quick fixes, fad diets, low-calorie options and I had always fluctuated massively as I could never find a balance or a lifestyle – that’s why The Healthy Mummy was so appealing, it was a realistic approach and I didn’t have to starve myself. I started by doing the Challenges, budget, customise and meal prep. I did no exercise for 5 months, just the food and lost 25kgs. Then I started exercising which took the weight loss up a notch!”
After losing 34 kilos and overhauling her lifestyle, Sascha was soon pregnant again with baby number 3.
“My first Healthy Mummy pregnancy was SO much easier having over 4000 recipes on the app to scroll through. I gained 15kgs less than the pregnancy before, was a lot more healthy and more active throughout the entire pregnancy and lost the 20kgs enjoyably post-birth with the Healthy Mummy app and Healthy Mummy smoothies.
“Feeling In Control”
Sascha admits to feeling so much more control in her life since living The Healthy Mummy lifestyle and enjoyed her fourth pregnancy so much she was keen to help and inspire other mums and mums to stay healthy and active.
“When I’m not pregnant I push to move my body a minimum 3 times a week doing proper workouts in the app, then I also like to walk!”
“Being pregnant I really do listen to my body as much as possible. It was so great to have the opportunity to do these pregnancy workouts! They’re amazing!”
There’s no doubt that living The Healthy Mummy lifestyle for the past 4 years, along with two pregnancies has had a massive impact on Sascha’s life.
“The Healthy Mummy has opened up so many opportunities for me because of the fulfilled, confident person I have become! I am now working full time with 4 kids in tow and I am more driven than ever. Being surrounded by empowered women each day is so rewarding and ensures I keep at my goals in every aspect of life.”
“We moved house when our third was born, but any disturbance in routine doesn’t throw us too much as we have changed all our habits and mindset. The whole family now loves cooking and being involved in meal prep and planning!”
“The most empowering thing the Healthy Mummy lifestyle has brought to our family is TRUST! Trusting ourselves that we can easily make the best health choices from the education The Healthy Mummy have given us and continue to provide.”
Prenatal Pregnancy Workouts for Second Trimester with Sascha
Sascha joined our amazing Fitness Trainer Wendy in 10 pregnancy workouts ideal for the second trimester, although they can be used by pregnant women in the late first trimester if approved by a health professional and up to the early third trimester as long as you’re feeling fit and healthy and the bump is not too large to continue some moves.
These prenatal workouts for any fitness level go for just ten minutes and cover the full body with a focus on pelvic floor stability, posture, fun moves, cardio, upper and lower body strength to prevent injuries or pain.
Wendy says, “These prenatal workouts focus on mental health, strength, mobility, vitality, balance and functional moves to help with day-to-day activities. Not only with you FEEL physically and mentally stronger, but this helps with the emotional hormone balance. Letting out stress in a safe environment which reduces the risk of anxiety or depression.”
These are great workouts to help pregnant women relax and get stronger for the birth and to have the energy for their family and enjoy this special time.
Sascha says, “I have so enjoyed doing these workouts with Wendy. They really have made me feel energised, in control and ready for baby number 4!”
Welcome Baby Number 4!
Following this pregnancy, Sascha has welcomed her beautiful baby daughter Remi Rose into the world and has adjusted to becoming a family of 6!
Sascha says, ‘She’s the perfect final (for real this time) addition to our family.”
“My last pregnancy with the help of the Healthy Mummy app was my healthiest yet! I wasn’t sure what another child in the mix would bring for me as a busy working mother and over the last few months I feel confident that I can stick to my healthy lifestyle. Using the smoothies and the healthy mummy app are a must for me.”
“Being a family of 6 is quite literally organised chaos! Our last little miracle is everything we didn’t know we needed but it definitely makes life alot busier! I am much more reliant on the app, planning and making sure there is always something healthy and easy to whip up for the family.”
“Having all the tools Healthy Mummy has to offer, the support group and the app at my fingertips has taught me to use what you’ve got and start where you are! You might start several times, it’s keeping going that counts.”
I have a smoothie every morning for breakfast, all our recipes are direct from the app, I plan and shop every Sunday! I also make sure I cook double of dinner every night so there is lunch the next day and I can restock my freezer as the days go by!”
