Online Course: Prenatal and Postpartum Exercise

$139.00

As a society, we need to support pregnant women and new mothers with their healthcare and quality of life. Pregnancy and childbirth are one of the most impactful biological functions that occur. The long-term effects of pregnancy and childbirth are just beginning to be explored. There is a critical importance of educating and empowering women as well as their healthcare practitioners in responsible exercise and nutrition protocols. It is important to understand what types of exercise are most beneficial to the recovery process as well as what types of movement and activities are not recommended. If women can gain a better understanding of the effects of pregnancy and delivery on the body, and begin training properly even before conception, then the goals of reducing pelvic floor dysfunction conditions and improving physical and emotional strength are achievable.

Course learning objectives include:

  • Identify female anatomy and the anatomy and physiology of pregnancy.
  • Describe the role of 6 body systems in pregnancy and the stages of labor and birth.
  • Recognize the role of nutrition in a healthy pregnancy.
  • Describe 5 aspects of exercise during pregnancy and special considerations for pregnant clients.
  • Identify proper screening and assessment for exercise for a pregnant client.
  • Describe the role and importance of posture and breathing for a pregnant client.
  • Identify guidelines for cardiorespiratory, strength, and flexibility exercise during pregnancy.
  • Describe 5 underlying exercise techniques for exercise during pregnancy.
  • Explain how to safely and effectively perform 30 exercises during pregnancy.
