This two day course will explore the anatomical and physiological changes that pregnant women experience as well as the indications and contraindications that fitness professionals need to be knowledgeable about when working with this special population.
What You Will Learn
During the seminar, we will review the anatomy and physiology important in understanding the prenatal physical transformations. We will pay particular attention to the common musculoskeletal changes that occur in this group and how these affect posture, strength, joint health, and typical pregnancy pain issues. We will learn to create effective movement protocols to support women during pregnancy as well as to physically prepare them for the challenges of labor and delivery.
This workshop will provide fitness professionals with the tools necessary to design a safe and creative program for the pregnant woman.
