Pregnancy Related Physiotherapy:

the childbearing year – an entry level course




Saturday, 7 December 2024


£275 POGP member/affiliate

£100 physiotherapy student


This study day provides an introduction to physiotherapy in perinatal care and is designed for physiotherapists and physiotherapy students who have an interest in women’s health. Perhaps you are a rotational physiotherapist, and those who occasionally see pregnant or post-natal women as part of their caseload, or are considering developing their knowledge and skills in order to develop a service.

You will discuss the evidence relating to health promotion in pregnancy, childbirth and beyond, in sessions that provide an overview of safe practice and special considerations for this patient group in both the management of some pregnancy-related problems and the setting up of education or exercise classes for this client group.

This course will also help you if you are involved in teaching other professional groups or students, for example, promotion of continence to midwives and confirming the role of the physiotherapist within the obstetric MDT.


Programme objective

To provide the participant with the knowledge and skills to deliver perinatal healthcare promotion and physiotherapy care.

Pre-course preparation work will be sent out ahead of the course.

Please be aware that we are not intending to deliver the lectures in completion as we are aware of possible Zoom fatigue on the day and feel that interactive work would be preferable.

The course preparation should prove interesting and is not all reading, there will also be some visual and audio links and possibly short recordings to view.

A timetable of content and timings will be sent closer to the day.

It will not be possible to record the content of the day so attendance is required in real time in order to complete the course.
