Did you know that postnatal women are less active than their age-matched peers, fathers and parents of older children? Women’s physical activity levels can be low during and after pregnancy. As rehabilitation professionals, we can help women maintain and return to a comfortable level of physical health and fitness for their life goals. In this webinar, Fiona Healy will discuss the current guidelines and recommendations for returning to postnatal exercise. She will outline the progression from low impact back to high impact, including common exercise preferences such as walking, cycling, strength training, and running. The barriers and enablers to exercise for postnatal women will also be discussed.
The aim of this webinar is to help rehabilitation professionals guide women safely back to exercise following childbirth.
This webinar recording consists of a 67-minute video and additional resources.
This course is aimed at Physiotherapy and Physical Therapy clinicians, students and assistants. Other interested professionals such as athletic trainers, occupational therapists, nurses or medical doctors interested in this subject are also invited to participate.
