Pregnancy and Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist
By: Sarah Ellis Duvall

Course Description

This 30-hour course provides practitioners with the best exercises to address common pregnancy and postpartum issues, like pelvic organ prolapse, stress incontinence, pelvic floor pain and tightness as well as diastasis recti and SI Joint Pain. It is a comprehensive course to improve the effectiveness of treatment and gaining lasting results for patients. You will learn the best corrective exercises that go way beyond clams, bridges and planks to use for improving alignment, strength and finding the source of the problem. On top of that, you will gain a working knowledge of the small tweaks needed to make each individual exercise more effective. The significant number of case studies, progressions and regressions will leave you confident in your exercise prescription for any level client, from beginner to advanced athlete. We also from a lot of different perspectives, many tools in the toolbox so to speak, so you’ll get a wide range of approaches and develop a great appreciation for the big picture and whole body holistic approach. What makes this course unique? Its all about the why! This course explains why a woman only three months postpartum can run without consequence while another woman ten months postpartum gets prolapse from lifting a stroller wrong. You will learn why SI Joint pain happens. Why a diastasis heals quickly for some and not for others and what you can do about it. The goal is for you to take away the rhyme and reason behind it all. To truly understand the cause. Only with a deep understanding of the why can you learn how to make women invincible. Every woman is different, and without the why it’s impossible to adapt. You’re just left with often out of date, blanket recommendations that are nonspecific to the client in front of you. This is especially true for prolapse and lifting. Through this course, you will be prepared to assess and adapt. You’ll get women with prolapse running and maxing out on lifts. You’ll learn fast effective exercises for addressing a diastasis. You’ll get quick tips to immediately relieve an achy back, but more importantly, you’ll learn why it was achy in the first place, so it will never happen again. No more band-aids! No more piecing things together to try and make them work. You’ll be helping women from the inside out to build an unstoppable body that can handle anything they want to throw at it.
