Event description

Description

Exercise Physiology in Pregnancy: Cardiovascular, Metabolic and Musculoskeletal

This new course, written by an Exercise Physiologist for Exercise Physiologists, is for clinicians who are currently working with, or looking to begin work with antenatal clients. Gone are the days where yoga and pilates were the only exercises prescribed for pregnant women, with Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEP’s) now the best placed practitioners to help provide education, guidance and exercise prescription and programing for a healthy active pregnancy.

This course explains the changes that occur during pregnancy across the cardiorespiratory, metabolic and musculoskeletal system and the interactions on exercise and activity. It also provides key prescreening, absolute and relative contraindications to exercise in pregnancy and an exercise library for each trimester of pregnancy.


Keep an eye out for our other e-courses, handouts, podcasts and other resources available for download, created for passionate health practitioners from interdisciplinary WHC knowledge.

At the completion of the Exercise Physiology in Pregnancy course you will:

1 Understand the multiple physiological changes (cardiovascular, respiratory, metabolic, musculoskeletal, neurological) that occur during

pregnancy and how these alter exercise response, modalities and intensity.

2 Be confident in recommending appropriate physical activity and exercise to women in all trimesters of pregnancy including prescreening, knowledge of relative and absolute contra-indicators and common pregnancy aliments, injuries and disorders.

3 Know the short and long-term benefits associated with exercise for both mother and offspring, including the latest evidence and research outcomes.

4 Have the skill set to design and implement a specific and appropriate exercise prescription for ‘apparently healthy’ pregnant women in all trimesters of pregnancy.

5 Appropriately modify exercise prescription for some common musculo-skeletal injuries or conditions that occur in pregnancy

including sacroiliac joint pain, pubic symphysis pain, lower back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome and edema.



Presented by Esme Soan, ESSA Women’s Health Expert

Esme has a passion for preconception, pregnancy and postnatal health. Taking her Bachelor of Clinical Exercise Physiology from QUT, and real-life clinical experience, Esme’s new desire is to share with others the positive health outcomes, both short and long term, that being physically active has for both mother and baby.

Specialising in women’s health as the Director of Pear Exercise Physiology, Esme is also ESSA’s Women’s Health Expert. Backed by not only her university studies, Esme has also completed lengthy research with The Centre for Nutrition and Exercise at The Mater Research and Griffith University Collaboration Unit, focusing on exercise as an effective management of Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM).

As the Director of The Women’s Health Collective (WHC), Esme has created a platform that brings women’s health experts from all areas of allied health, midwifery and psychology.

Open to all who want to learn more, ask why and work within an interdisciplinary network, the WHC are clinicians who are not satisfied with just functional, but who want to support women to run, jump, lift, perform and prosper.
