When a woman finds out she is pregnant her body undergoes a lot of changes for the little miracle to occur. This course will provide you with the knowledge to understand how these changes will be affecting your exercise prescription.

The trainer needs to consider the trimester that the client is in, contra-indicated exercises, previous training history, along with various special considerations and be aware of any symptoms which may indicate the baby or the mother is undergoing harm.
