A Baby & Me Fitness™ Accredited Certification
As leaders in the Prenatal & Postnatal Fitness industry, Baby & Me Fitness™ has over 30 years of knowledge and experience working with the unique needs of the prenatal and postpartum body. As a certification organization, we believe that all expectant birthers, new parents and postpartum folks are entitled to a safe and fun fitness and/or movement experience.
It is, therefore, a necessity that all fitness instructors training in prenatal and postpartum have adequate knowledge of anatomy, physiology, contraindications and the impact that pregnancy has on bodily structures and functions, as well as practical knowledge of the birth and postpartum experience.
30+ years of education and certification!
Learn at your own pace with
loads of support.
This online pre/postnatal fitness & movement certification is filled with information that is presented in a way that speaks to all learning styles – audio, video, slide shows and/or textbook.
Also included in this program are: important documents; exercise video examples; and great reading lists. These resources live in an easy-to-use online classroom and the modules have been designed with a fitness/movement educator & specialist in mind. That means we have applied a health at every size (HAES), intersectional, trauma-informed lens when we decided to upgrade & re-design. Furthermore, this certification easily translates to any discipline (i.e. personal training, group fitness, water aerobics, yoga, dance, functional movement classes and more!).
