We know that exercise during pregnancy is generally good for both the mother and baby. However, until you have a client, class member, or yourself, pregnant, you may not be prepared to work with them safely. This program will take you through the common concerns, safe screening, and the best exercises to do when pregnant so that you can safely work with this population.

While there are many myths around training while pregnant, the fact of the matter is that regular exercise while pregnant can reduce the number of complications during and after pregnancy, including post-partum depression, hypertensive disorders, gestational diabetes, emergency operative deliveries, and more (according to the 2019 Canadian Guideline for Physical Activity Throughout Pregnancy).
