Exercise physiologists are well placed to work with a postnatal population, helping safely progress new mums back into exercise.
New mums can suffer from pathophysiology such as diastasis recti and pelvic organ prolapse (POP), which are not routinely screened for in general gym programs with dire consequence.
Learn the essentials of working with postpartum clients, including pathophysiology of diastasis recti and POP, how to safely screen and exercise prescription and rehabilitation for mums returning to fitness.
The recording is of a webinar presented by ESSA on 29 March 2017.
Presented by Miss Esme Soan AEP, AES, ESSAM
Since graduating with a Bachelor of Clinical Exercise Physiology from QUT, Esme has had a passion for preconception, pregnancy and postnatal health, and the importance being physically active can have on the short and long term health outcomes for both mother and baby.
After completing 16 months of research with the Centre for Nutrition and Exercise at Mater Research/ Griffith University, learning more about exercise during pregnancy, and especially the impact exercise has to manage Gestational Diabetes Melltus (GDM), Esme has used her knowledge base to begin work as a clinician specializing in Women’s Health at Pear Exercise Physiology: Pregnancy & Women’s Health.
