Zeynep: 5/2019: Really great course! Explains everything that a woman goes through during pregnancy. Informative and practical.
Patricia: 3/2019: Loved learning all of this and can't wait to practice it!
Candace: 1/2019 This course was extremely helpful to understand how to properly train and support pregnancy and postpartum clients. I feel better equipped to support my clients in a variety of exercise modalities and better meet their needs.
Julia: 12/2018 Excellent course! Covers a lot and answers all of your questions. Highly recommend!
Caroline: 3/2018 The material was well written and easy to follow along with. I am currently 25 weeks pregnant with my second and I felt like the material presented fit well into what I experienced in my first pregnancy and in my current pregnancy now. I was worried the material would not be that up to date - only because I previously searched for an ACE pregnancy related course and it looked extremely outdated! This material is updated! The research studies presented referenced studies from 2015. I also have to mention that the videos from the Oh Baby Fitness instructor were very informational and brought the reading material to life.
Barbara: 2/2018 The best course ever! thank you!
Jennifer 11/2017 I’m a nurse and currently pregnant and your program is truly inspiring! I love how your certification program is challenging, practical and based on best practice, so rare to find a program like yours! Thank you again for creating a wonderful program! It truly will change my own practice and what I promote to the community.
Kimberly 3/2017 I LOVED this course. Once I finally sat down to get through it, I couldn't stop. It was wonderfully put together and I have joked with some of my friends that I learned more about pregnancy during this course than I did while I was actually pregnant.
