What is a Pregnancy Fitness Educator?

A Pregnancy Fitness Educator is a person who works with the pregnant woman in the ante-natal as well as the post-natal period. They are trained in the relevant exercises for a safe, healthy and comfortable pregnancy as well as in key nutrition aspects.

The following is a general description of what you might expect from a CAPPA certified Pregnancy Fitness Educator. Ideally a pregnant woman can begin her exercise regime as soon as she gets the go ahead from her doctor. She can then enroll with a Pregnancy Fitness Educator who will guide her through nutrition issues and provide guidelines for a healthy pregnancy. The trainer will also guide the mother through safe exercises for pregnancy and birth depending on the fitness level of the mother. Breathing exercises for birth are also practiced in the sessions that a Pregnancy Fitness Educator conducts. In the post natal period, a fitness educator can help the mother regain her pre-pregnancy tone and shape with the help of nutrition planning and safe exercises.
