Evidence-Based Perinatal Fitness for Birth Workers

For all healthcare professionals interested in learning an evidence-based approach to advising women on exercise in the perinatal period including:

  • Doulas/Childbirth Educators

  • Nurses/Midwives

  • NPs/PAs/MDs

This two-hour workshop will combine lecture, movement and time for a Q&A.

We will review:

  • Normal anatomical changes that occur during pregnancy and postpartum as they relate to movement and staying active

  • Common dysfunctions such as diastasis recti, pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence

  • Current guidelines, common myths and the state of the evidence for fitness in the perinatal period including counseling strategies and resources available to women in NOLA

  • Learning will be experiential so come prepared to move and work in groups.

Wear clothing that you are comfortable moving in and sneakers. This event will be capped at 20 participants to allow for active participation. Babies that are not yet mobile are welcome.
