Our globally-recognized Pre & Post Natal Course will introduce qualified Level 3 FitnessProfessionals to the skills needed to guide new and expecting mothers on their fitness journey, through each pregnancy trimester and after childbirth. Physical activity during and after pregnancy requires specialized knowledge and attention to ensure the mother and baby’s optimal health. Learners will acquire the theoretical and practical knowledge as well as practical tools to empower soon-to-be and new moms to continue their physical exercise journey, safely and effectively. What sets this course apart is the deep insight IFA’s expert instructors in the field can offer when it comes to current guidelines and recommendations for work with pre- and post-natal clients – helping you think outside the box as part of our applied ‘Train the Trainer’ modules.
