Post Natal Depletion is a condition where a new mum is overwhelmed, and often appears alongside depression and/or anxiety. Women take on a lot of new responsibilities when they have children, and they will overwhelm themselves trying to be the perfect parent while riddled with self doubt.
We know to look out for depression in our Post Natal clients, but do we know what we are looking for in regards to depletion? and are we helping her, or contributing to it with our messaging? This course is for personal trainers who want to go deeper in their post natal awareness and understanding. It’s for the trainer who doesn’t want to enforce unrealistic expectations on their post natal clients, or unknowingly buy in to the damaging messaging from the fitness industry.
You’ll get out of this course an artillery of tools for recognizing Post Natal Depletion, as well as how to help the mama in front of you, without losing her as a client. We don’t have to flog all our clients, and they don’t all have to achieve a special, skinny, look in order to be successful – in many cases, movement alone can help with self esteem, self worth, resilience, and boost energy! Be that trainer that gives the gift of less pressure to the clients who need it most!
After completing this course you will be better qualified to serve this population and especially training the mums who have made it to your session, despite all the competing pressures of her day.
