About the Course

TEN's Pre and Post Natal CPD enables the trainer to have an understanding of how each trimester affects the anatomy and physiology of the female body and how we can promote safe and healthy activity within these stages of pregnancy. Often female clients are eager to get back into a fitness regimen during the postnatal phase. As a result, returning to exercise can be not only daunting but also physically demanding.

This CPD will provide an awareness of the difficulties that the female clients may encounter and how to combat particular issues. This CPD is delivered within 2 separate days. The first day will cover the learning content, while the second day covers both theory and practical assessment.

Course structure

The course will be delivered over 2 separate days, consisting of one day of content delivery and one day of assessment (theory and practical-based).

Learning Outcomes

  • The learner will be proficient in understanding the anatomical and physiological journey of a female client participating within exercise throughout pregnancy and the benefits that can be gained from activity.
  • The learner will identify how environmental differences can influence the outcome of the session - Ie, room temperature, lighting, hydration and time of session.
