By The End Of This Course, The Goal Is To Have You Confidently Working With Mamas, Even If You Do Not Know How Or Where To Start

The Comprehensive Guide To Helping Mamas Thrive

This course was developed with mothers who have been treated for over a decade in mind and in response to hearing PTs and PTAs say that they learned a little bit about treating women in school, but don’t feel like they know enough to go into a mother’s home. This course empowers practitioners to give moms the guidance and education they deserve throughout pregnancy, delivery and the postpartum period which just so happens to be the rest of their lives.

With a case study at the end that challenges the student to complete an episode of care from initial contact through the second home visit, students leave this course with the tools that they need to help moms return to who they were physically, mentally, emotionally and intimately so that they can be the best version of themselves.
