Exercise During Pregnancy and Post-Partum Webinar

Exercise During Pregnancy and Post-Partum Webinar

Exercise During Pregnancy and Post-Partum Webinar

This webinar will provide an updated overview of exercise considerations during pregnancy and the post-partum period. In particular, we will cover physiological changes during pregnancy (and how you need to accommodate for these with your exercise prescription), exercise during pregnancy guidelines, common musculoskeletal conditions during pregnancy, and post-partum exercise prescription. There will be a focus on translating the research and guidelines into applied exercise physiology practice. In particular, this webinar will discuss safety considerations for providing exercise training for pregnant and post-partum women.
