“I believe this course could help change our birth culture… I now have the tools to teach my clients to take care of their own health and prepare effectively for their pregnancy, labor, delivery, and postpartum.”

Are you ready to stand apart from of the rest of the personal trainers and become seen as a leading expert in the world of perinatal fitness?
Do you want to become “The Trainer” pre & post natal clients are telling their friends and family about?
You see right now there are thousands pre & post natal clients that are desperately seeking for competent professionals that can help give them the proper guidance during this very important phase in their lives.
As of right now most pregnant women that speak with their doctors to get guidance on what to expect and what to do during their pregnancy are only given about 2% of the full picture. With our comprehensive holistic approach you’ll learn the other 98% and you’ll be able to guide your clients and give them confidence and support they are needing.
How good would that feel to able to provide that type of support and care to your clients during such a special time for them?
Also due to high chances of mechanical births (c-section and drug induced, around 33% of women experience these preventable circumstances) and struggles with infertility (1 out of 10 women in the U.S. are in danger of) there is a growing trend of women seeking Complementary Alternative Medicine. Actually 7 out 10 women are currently seeking CAM alternatives…
That is great news for trainers who are properly trained in pre & post natal corrective exercises. This means a huge potential for you to increase your income all the while filling a huge need for these women.
With our comprehensive revolutionary holistic approach to pre-post natal training you’ll get the confidence, inspiration, and motivation to fix the most common pregnancy and postpartum complaints and discomforts.
You will be able to provide your clients with:
You see our course teaches you a lot more than just how to train pre-post natal clients. With our course you you’ll also give your clients tools and techniques they can use to prepare for their pregnancy, labor, delivery, and postpartum.
Our course differs in many ways from other pre-natal courses. First off, most other courses simply teach you the do’s and don’t when training pregnant women, that’s it.
What you learn from us goes way beyond just becoming an exercise specialist. We pride ourselves in providing you with a holistic and more complete program for you and your client.
As you can see will you get more of a comprehensive approach when you join our course. And to clear things up a bit further I want to let you know who this course is for and who it’s not for…
Who Is This Course For:
This course is for personal trainers, yoga teachers, pilates instructors, health professionals who are tired of boring incomplete education. This course is for open minded individuals who want to be more progressive and want to provide their clients with a holistic approach.
Who Is This Course NOT For:
Someone who doesn’t care to provide a holistic approach. Someone who just wants to train pregnant women but doesn’t want to really understand anything else about pregnancy.
Imagine that you can give pregnant mothers the knowledge and skills to have peace of mind and confidence in their body. Imagine that you can help create an easier pregnancy for them and happier, healthier newborns.
Imagine how you would feel being able to offer this and the appreciation you’ll receive.
Do you want a professional career that is defined by this? Would you want the network of referrals and stream of revenue that would rise from it?
You are capable of fulfilling a powerful desire for wellness that burns inside of pregnant women. Pregnant women want to get their pregnancy “right” and to have a healthy baby in a way so compelling that they are willing to make changes like they never have before.
The achievement of a healthy pregnancy, birth and baby inspires them to tell their pregnant friends who helped them; who they trusted. That person is you. This is the course that gets you there.
Often, mothers-to-be do not experience the benefits listed above, but you can help. Healthier babies come from more secure, confident and knowledgeable moms. Often, it is a secure, confident and knowledgeable wellness professional who inspires this kind of mom.
Did you know that many pregnant moms are still being taught that white crackers and soda are appropriate solutions for morning sickness, and that discontinuing exercise is the first response for preventing pregnancy complications?
What you get in this course is the truth about pre and postnatal wellness from every angle imaginable. This is not just about learning the standard pregnancy guidelines with a conventional look at exercise and nutrition. What you get in this course is the “other side” of the pre and postnatal world. This course is an investigative uncovering of the unknown and shocking issues occurring in the world of birth right now. Somewhere along the journey, you will discover exactly how to help your clients choose the fertility, birth, and delivery pathway that is right for them. You will also learn how to coach corrective exercise so that you can prevent and heal a myriad of common pregnancy complaints.
This course compares modern practices versus research on how our ancestors lived and birthed, keeping one question in mind:
Why are rates of infertility, C-sections, and infant chronic disease at all time highs and rising faster than we can seem to control? These are what we call “the three trends.”
Knowing this invaluable information makes you a precious resource and enables you to earn more income while enjoying the rewarding work that you do.
One new pre or postnatal client is easily worth more than $5,000. What would you invest for the opportunity to powerfully and consistently attract dozens of them starting in just the next few hours? How about $377?

Quiz # 6: Section 8
Join with a Fit For Birth Coach to practice assessing your prenatal client.
The objective of the video call (VC) is for you, the new Pre & Post Natal Corrective Exercise Specialist, to improve upon your level of practical knowledge and application.
The session is not pass/fail! There are three intentions of this VC:
1. To help you improve your skills as a qualified pre and postnatal professional.
2. To join with a Fit For Birth (FFB) Head Coach in finding the primary misalignments or less than optimal function in your client, and help her understand and feel the solution through corrective exercise.
3. To have fun and enjoy the process
● Your pre or postnatal client (Ideally, you may bring a pre or postnatal client to practice your assessment, but you are welcome to bring a friend or relative if a pre or postnatal client is not available.)
● Your preparation for leading an assessment
● A computer, tablet, or phone that has a reliable Internet connection and Google Hangouts or Skype capability.
There is not a “necessary” way that the two-hour VC needs to unfold, but there is a usual format for fitness professionals. Unless discussed in advance with a FFB Head Coach, you can plan for the following:
1. Introductory get-to-know eachother discussion
2. You practice the FFB Assessment with your client one time through in a “noncoaching” manner.
3. You join with the FFB Coach in explaining major findings to the client and why making change is important.
4. The FFB Coach (and you) coach a brief corrective exercise sequence to see if the client can jumpstart the deficient area.
5. The FFB Coach (and you) practice coaching the client how to perform with greater function, with the intention that the client feels the difference between her body before and after.
6. Questions between you and head coach can be addressed in private at the end, after the client’s role is completed.
The session is designed to have you practice assessing, training, and inspiring your prenatal or postnatal clients to understand the importance of training with you. This is a great opportunity for you to practice “selling” the impact of your services as a pre and postnatal professional.
Not only will you experience how a Fit For Birth Head Coach performs an assessment, but the client will be gently coached as to how your corrective exercise awareness makes you the obvious candidate to perform this service. Please expect for you and your client to spend two hours during this VC session. Typically, the client is needed about 15 minutes after the session begins.
You can also receive education from our course. We are accredited by the top certifying industry leaders:
“This course far exceeded my highest expectations…changed my approach to training ALL clients, not just pre-post natal.”
“I am a holistic health coach and wanted a course that was going to approach pre-post natal pregnancy training with a comprehensive understanding of the body. Other certifications seemed to have an out of date, rigid approach to training. Fit for Birth’s approach is constantly staying current, aware that the science is always being updated and training women in a way that is suitable for their body type and lifestyle. My specific goal was to learn how to safely train a pre-post natal body. This course far exceeded my highest expectations. The content from this course has changed my approach to training ALL clients, not just pre-post natal. The concepts taught in the course are transferable to everyone.”

“Midway through this course I was able to help my parents improve their breathing and deep squat, all from a course dedicated to the pregnant client! “
“This course has really been an amazing experience! The amount of detail and resources provided is amazing. I have so many books to read to help me expand my knowledge on various subjects from pregnant women to water intake to corrective exercise. Midway through this course I was able to help my parents improve their breathing and deep squat, all from a course dedicated to the pregnant client! The ability to apply these concepts to a wide array of clients is valuable beyond belief. This course is a must for all trainers because it goes so much deeper than the pregnant client, it’s for ALL human beings! THANK YOU”

“I believe this course could help to change our birth culture. As a massage therapist and personal trainer, I now have the tools to teach my clients to take care of their own health and prepare effectively for their pregnancy, labor, delivery, and postpartum. I can also now address issues like \’diastasis recti\’ which many clients have suffered from with no support or tools to deal with or heal it. This course educates about the challenges of modern birth but also empowers the students to see that natural birth can be prepared for. It provides tools to move forward to implement positive changes.”

I found the breathing assessment and exercises to be most useful. I always taught patients to avoid valsalva maneuver through nose and mouth breathing, but never how to strengthen the core through the diaphragm, as I was too focused on the transverse abdominis and pelvic floor. However, having clients perform active exercises with the “belly pumping” technique along with diaphragmatic breathing is a great way to strengthen the core. James coached me through the most effective way to teach this skill and it is something that I will be applying to all my patients in my practice going forward.

“I feel so empowered, informed and aware of my potential as a pregnant women and a fitness professional..”
I spent the last 3 full days immersed in this absolutely incredible WHOLE-istic and comprehensive program! I feel so empowered, informed and aware of my potential as a pregnant women and a fitness professional! I cannot wait to help spread this concept to other women! There is truly nothing like this out there, combining the physical and mental/emotional health of the mother and baby! I have already implemented into my pregnancy and I am SO excited to share it with pre and post natal women!
“I was delighted with how much I learned about pregnancy and childbirth that I hadn’t considered before.”
This was an excellent course. The materials were so informative and presented in a way that was easy to understand. The lecture videos were really helpful as well. I’m not usually a person who can sit and watch videos but James is a great teacher and his explanations helped keep me engaged in the material. I was delighted with how much I learned about pregnancy and childbirth that I hadn’t considered before. The core breathing belly pump technique is something that everyone needs to learn. I’ve had clients tell me their back pain was gone after only one session of belly training. This approach is definitely revolutionary. It is applicable to both pregnant women and anyone wanting to improve their health. The video conference session was invaluable to me and my client. James took the time to not only evaluate but also refine my comprehension of the fit for birth method. It allowed me to present the most appropriate techniques and language that helped my client understand how and why this approach is applicable to his goals.
I hold a few certifications (4) but I have to say this course was by far the best one . To actually watch some ones squat go from shaky knees and a full on knee load to an almost perfect form in a matter of minutes just from teaching them how to breathe correctly is just incredible. I will definitely be incorporating the techniques I’ve learnt into my current personal training sessions because working on the foundations, working from the inside out is definitely the best way to go. The VC session was just so much fun. I was nervous at first not knowing how it’d go but i was pleasantly surprised. It was an excellent way to wrap up the whole course. Lets get the foundations right and everything else will just fall into place! Thank you +fitforbirth, looking forward to taking on more courses with yourselves.
“…taking this course I understand NASM better than ever.”
I absolutely LOVED this course! I got more than what I had expected that’s for sure. I have been a NASM-CPT for 5 years and after taking this course I understand NASM better than ever. The FFB assessment is extremely thorough yet simple to perform and conduct. It truly helps the fitness professional pinpoint the needs of each client and associate those needs towards the clients individual goals. I am so thankful for this course and am looking forward to empowering woman with the invaluable knowledge I’ve gained from this course. Thank you Fit For Birth!!!!
“I am so excited to help other moms-to-be optimize their/their baby’s health…”
I thoroughly enjoyed the Fit For Birth certification. The curriculum was well-thought out, interesting/informative, and easy to follow. I have witnessed first-hand the benefits of good exercise, nutrition, and de-stressing during pregnancy. I am so excited to help other moms-to-be optimize their/their baby’s health while also reconnecting to their bodies and trusting the birth process. Will be following for more CEUs to come. Thanks!
As a perinatal nutritionist, this course was exactly what I wanted to compliment the dietary aspect of conception, pregnancy, and the postpartum period. But, more than that, the course was what I wanted and needed for myself, personally. I suffered diastasis recti in my first pregnancy, and had to undergo an emergency c-section. I utilized the techniques in the course throughout my postpartum period and in my second pregnancy, and can now personally vouch for their effectiveness. I’m so glad that I found this course, not only for my own personal benefit, but also for the wealth of knowledge and skills I know have to help my clients in an even more full and multi-faceted way.
My trainers at Equinox Aventura absolutely loved the course! The education provided immediate application to clients, pregnant or not. I would recommend this course to anyone looking to further their education or starting the fitness industry!

“It gave me a totally new perspective of coaching approach that I’m using also on non-prégnant clients..”
Such a great certification and such a great experience, not only in business field, but also in a personal one. I was a bit skeptical how this video lessons are going to look like, and it’s kind of awesome because you have the impression sometimes like you are in there:)

“…this certification can be a game changer in how birthing is done in the USA”
Amazing certification! Loved the holistic approach that it took and how informative the course work was overall. With the belly breathing ,core work and labor prepping this certification can be a game changer in how birthing is done in the USA. I have already started using all of the techniques in my clients and have seen immense different in body awareness. I would recommend this to anyone!
Hands down, the best continuing education course I’ve taken. I learned useful tools that I can immediately put to use with my pre & postnatal clients. I really enjoyed learning about the benefits to daily mind clearing practice. Also, most importantly, I learned how to structure a prenatal session using belly training, functional training & labor training. I highly recommend!
“I would consider it a life changing program and one that all fitness professionals should take.”
“I took the fit for birth course looking to learn more about what current research supports regarding exercise and pregnancy. I would have been happy to learn the “Do’s and Don’ts” of pregnancy as well as some info on how to help clients with common pregnancy ailments, but this program offered so much more. I would consider it a life changing program and one that all fitness professionals should take.
FInally, the Video Consultation (test out) was worth the price of the course in itself. James personally took time to meet with me through a video conference and coach me through a mock consultation. Not only did I get invaluable feedback, but my “Client” walked away with actual advice on how to change up his exercise routine to start to achieve his goals more effectively
I cannot recommend this program enough. I would easily pay twice the cost of the course to get the same experience.”
“I was blown away by this course and what I learned; it wasn’t just about corrective exercise.”
I have always had a passion for holistic health, and the more I explored the field, the more I was drawn specifically toward female health and wellness. This course sparked something in me; with every lecture I was certain this was my calling – pre/postnatal corrective exercise and wellness.
I was blown away by this course and what I learned; it wasn’t just about corrective exercise. I had a history lesson, psychology lesson, anatomy and physiology lesson, and a rehabilitation lesson all rolled into one neat package!
The course is all encompassing. I bring my Fit For Birth manual everywhere with me. I am able to refer back easily to certain sections to clarify past lessons, and use it frequently to answer any questions I encounter. I couldn’t even begin to count how many “ah-ha” moments I experienced throughout my learning process. James and Theresa are fantastic teachers, and their passion and love for this topic kept me that much more engaged.
The assessment aspect of this course, however, is what really blew me away. It is incredibly simple, yet extremely powerful! With one question “where do you feel it?” – I can pin point the exact muscle dysfunction and work on correcting it immediately. No guess work required.
Through Fit For Birth, I didn’t just learn how to train the pre/postnatal client. I also learned how to use exercise to rehab her post-pregnancy, and how to better guide her on her emotional journey of pregnancy and beyond.
I am so thankful I was led to this course; I have learned more than I could have hoped, and am a much better trainer because of it!
Just remember you can’t lose money but you could cause someone harm if you don’t have the proper training to correctly train pregnant women.
