Why Exercise During Pregnancy & the Postpartum Period W'shop

After the hugely successful 2018 Australia wide roadshow, we are excited to provide this workshop again, exclusively to Perth. 
Exercise is beneficial for the majority of pregnant and postpartum women, however there can be many barriers to overcome when working with this population. Learn everything you need to know about exercise in this time period, and how to modify for certain conditions; Urinary Incontinence, Pelvic Organ Prolapse, Rectus Abdominis Diastasis, Pelvic Girdle Pain and more. Discover the latest research and how to apply it directly to your client’s exercise programs to get these women safely back to exercise in an effort to improve their health over their lifespan.
Presented by Mrs Stacey Pine, AES, AEP, ESSAM and Miss Lauren Young, AES, AEP, APAM
Stacey Pine 
Originally from Canada, Stacey completed a BSc in Human Movement at the University of Alberta and travelled to Perth, WA for her practical placement in 2007. She became an AEP in early 2008, working in musculoskeletal rehabilitation and gaining experience with top Orthopedic Surgeons and AEPs, rehabilitating patients before and after a range of surgeries and conditions. 

In 2010, Stacey immersed herself in Pilates training while working for a Pilates Physiotherapy Practice, broadening her skills with a variety of clientele. She became a fully certified STOTT Pilates practitioner in 2012, and found her niche and passion in pregnancy and postnatal exercise.  Working alongside experienced practitioners and undertaking any available workshops and courses allowed her to build skills and knowledge in the area of women’s health and rehabilitation.

In 2014 Stacey started Progressive Motion, a mobile Pilates and Exercise Physiology business.  This service allows her to see mums in their own environment, helping them keep active in pregnancy and return to exercise safely in the postnatal period. She teaches workshops around Perth for new mums, and has recently released an Online Program for postnatal women, “Restore Your Core and Pelvic Floor”.

Lauren Young
Lauren is a Physiotherapist who works in Continence & Women’s Health. However, Lauren started her career in 2001 as an AEP and then a Pilates instructor where she soon developed an interest in women’s health and musculoskeletal rehabilitation. Following years of providing exercise rehabilitation, Lauren wanted to offer her clients a more comprehensive approach, and with a specific interest in sexual pain, went on to study Physiotherapy. 

Her desire to help women led her to undertake postgraduate studies in Continence and Women’s Health Physiotherapy. Lauren has gained valuable inpatient clinical experience on private and public maternity wards as well as outpatient Women’s Health experience in private practice. She primarily treats pre and postnatal women with urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, sexual pain/dysfunction, musculoskeletal conditions and rectus abdominis diastasis. In addition to manual treatment, Lauren continues to use exercise as a therapy to aid these women.
