Traditionally, pregnant women have been told to just ‘take it easy and put your feet up’. Naturally, rest and avoidance of prolonged strain is important, but women are now being encouraged to exercise more where possible during pregnancy. This shift in attitude has created the need for careful training and a deep understanding of the changes women go through while pregnant and shortly after birth.
Our Level 3 Pre and Postnatal Instructor course is specifically designed to equip you with the skills needed to effectively and safely guide your clients through a range of exercises and provide them with accurate information. Whether you’re looking to position yourself as a specialist or simply broaden the range of people you can work with, this qualification is ideally suited for you.
During the course, you’ll learn about the benefits of exercise during pregnancy, understand the anatomical and physiological changes a women goes through during her pregnancy, and discover important nutritional considerations for post and prenatal clients.
To get more of a feel for what this course entails, we’ve prepared a sample of our new student manual. It covers a few key areas, including a summary of psychological changes during the three trimesters, potential risks for both the mother and foetus, and important nutritional information.
