Confidently Train Prenatal and Postnatal Clients!

Our Prenatal and Postpartum Fitness Trainers Certification Course will prepare you to train clients throughout pregnancy for comfort and strength, in preparation for birth, and then recover in the postpartum period.

Our certification course goes beyond exercises to do in each phase of life. We incorporate education on labor and birth so that you can design your prenatal programming to meet the demands of labor while preparing your clients to develop their birth plans.

In our course you will learn:

  • How to modify movement to accommodate for pregnancy;
  • Know when to modify and the rationale behind it so you can educate your clients on approaching exercise;
  • The science of birth, so you can adapt your programming to prepare your client for birth, such as movements to help baby engage, or releasing tension in the pelvic floor;
  • How to progress movement postpartum towards sport-specific goals;
  • Program design to develop programming for both pregnancy, preparation for birth, and then return to fitness postpartum + templates to help you navigate writing your first pre/postnatal programs or improve your current ones;
  • Pelvic Floor Anatomy, Function, + Dealing with Pelvic Floor Issues as a Coach with Guest Lectures from Pelvic Floor Physical Therapists;
  • And more! Check out the curriculum below for a more in-depth breakdown of what you will learn in this course!
