Would you like to deepen your knowledge of post-natal rehab?
Are you keen to help and retain these clients and improve word of mouth recommendations?
How can you best help new mums safely connect back to their core foundations so they feel stronger and stay injury free ?
Join us to explore how to progress women safely and effectively back from pregnancy and childbirth, to the level of fitness they strive for.
The process of pregnancy and childbirth is both miraculous and extremely demanding for the mother. Huge changes occur within a mother’s body as she nurtures and delivers her child.
Significant alteration to muscle composition, ligamentous laxity, joint stability, blood volume, visceral tone and a host of other important body processes means safe and effective coaching of a post-partum client requires skill and a sound knowledge base. This course aims to provide a basic understanding of key areas relevant to the general personal trainer/fitness professional .
What you will learn about:
Physiological changes of the mother during pregnancy as they pertain to the musculo-skeletal system
The Birth process: associated risks, potential injuries and considerations relating to return to physical activity / training.
Common post-natal conditions such as abdominal diastasis, stress incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. How to screen for these conditions and modify your fitness program accordingly.
Optimal alignment and breathing techniques to promote the core connection and healing after having a baby.
Tips on how to help connect post-natal women to their pelvic floor and use it effectively during their fitness sessions and home practice.
C-section recovery and how to work with this group.
Exercise modifications for those breastfeeding and those with pelvic pain.

The course will be hosted by Niamh Burn (Pelvic Health Physiotherapist), Nicki Brown (Specialist pre and postnatal PT, massage therapist and pre/postnatal teacher at Fix / Frame / &Breathe) and Luke Selby - Osteopath, Sports Coach and Director at Fix.
