Exercise During Pregnancy and Post-partum Webinar

This professional development will provide an 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.
Presented by Dr Kassia Beetham, PhD, B.AppSc (Ex Sci) (Hons), GCHEd, ESSAM, AEP
Kassia is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist, and is the Course Coordinator for the Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology program at the Brisbane campus, at Australian Catholic University. Kassia’s PhD was completed at the University of Queensland looking at the effects of a lifestyle intervention on cardiovascular risk factors in patients with chronic kidney disease. She then went on to complete postdoctoral work at the University of Sydney and Macquarie University, looking at the effects of a playground intervention in children with disability. Her current research interest is in clinical exercise physiology and women’s health, particularly pregnancy and postpartum. Kassia has an interest in high intensity training across chronic disease populations and during pregnancy and postpartum periods.
