This course is only available in French.

Some health care professionals are not comfortable guiding women in the design of a prenatal exercise program or a post-natal fitness program. Out of embarrassment or ignorance, both health care professionals and clients will not address pelvic floor issues following childbirth, believing that the issue will not be influenced by the choice of exercise. These women do not know how to train, how to adapt their physical activities, or even where to start!

This course is designed for all health professionals who wish to work with pregnant and postpartum women. Specifically, this course covers the following topics:



  • Anatomy of the pelvic floor and abdominals
  • Physiological changes during pregnancy, the impact of different trimesters
  • Physical activity during pregnancy (benefits, risks, absolute contraindications)
  • Potential pelvic floor problems during pregnancy
  • Potential musculoskeletal pain during pregnancy



  • Potential pelvic floor issues after childbirth
  • The reality of the new mother
  • The diastasis of big rights
  • Physical activity and the new mother’s return to sports (benefits, the concept of progression)
  • What you need to understand and know about physical activity pessaries



Demonstration of online exercises:

  • The basic exercises to engage the transverse abdomen and progression.
  • Pelvic floor recruitment exercises, the right instructions! Pelvic floor palpation as an outpatient!
  • Basic exercises to include in an exercise program for pregnant and postnatal women, and what to AVOID!
  • The main tapings to know for the pregnant and postnatal woman

    Very well structured, but I found that some subjects were too vulgarized.

    Super interesting. I’m looking forward to the return of face-to-face courses to practice the ex’s and assimilate them better. But otherwise, super clear!

Every healthcare professional who is a member of an order or association must complete hours of continuing education each year. All of our courses are designed to help you accumulate these continuing education hours. However, the number of credits may vary depending on your profession and location. The information below is for information purposes only. We recommend that you confirm with your professional order and/or association.

For your information, Bia education aims to accredit its online education content in the U.S. and Europe as quickly as possible.

Content is not intended for use outside the scope of the learner’s license or regulation. Continuing education courses should not be taken by individuals who are not licensed or otherwise regulated, except, as they are involved in a specific plan of care. By participating in this course, the participant agrees to respect his/her professional scope of practice.

The instructors speak in French and handout is also available only in French.

Yes, it is possible to extend access to your courses through our Bia membership. This membership allows you, among other benefits, to enjoy extended access to the courses beyond the initial 6 months.

Each health professional who is a member of a college or association must complete continuing education units (CEU) annually. Here is some information about kinesiologists, physiotherapists and physiotherapy technologists.

Kinesiologist, FKQ

All accredited members of the Fédération des Kinésiologues du Québec (FKQ) must accumulate 30 credits of recognized continuing education every two years from the year of their accreditation. These credits can be obtained from continuing education offered by the FKQ and/or other organizations recognized by the FKQ. In order to facilitate your task of analyzing the credits granted to your course, the FKQ Continuing Education Committee gives you access to an equivalency grid.

For each* of your courses at Bia education, you will receive a certificate of participation confirming the number of hours of course received.

*Excluding course not accessible to kinesiologists, this exclusion will be mentioned in the course description.

Kinesiologist-kinesitherapist, A.K.K.O.M.Q.

All members of the A.K.K.O.M.Q. must accumulate continuing education units. The association intends to ensure the safety and quality of kinesiology and kinesiology-kinesitherapy interventions, by requiring its members to maintain and improve their knowledge through the many continuing education courses offered annually, and to put their skills into practice while respecting the code of ethics. Credits can be obtained from continuing education offered by the FKQ and/or other organizations recognized by the FKQ.

For each* of your courses at Bia education, you will receive a certificate of participation confirming the number of hours of course received.

*Excluding course not accessible to kinesitherapists, this exclusion will be mentioned in the course description.

Physiotherapist and physiotherapy technologist, OPPQ

In the case of physiotherapists, each member must have a minimum of 45 hours of continuing education units (CEU) during the reference period, which is three years. Of these 45 hours, at least 30 hours must be accumulated in formal learning activities. The remaining continuing education hours can be accumulated in autonomous, formal learning activities or in a combination of both categories.

A CEU is equivalent to one hour of course, which is the actual time spent by the member to acquire or update his or her knowledge or skills. In the context of a formal activity, the member is in a learning situation when acting as a participant. Time spent on breaks, meals or any other activity without academic content should therefore be subtracted from the calculation of CEUs.

A formal learning activity is defined as an activity designed and delivered by experts in the subject matter and with a predetermined structure, content, objectives and duration. All the course offered by Bia education are therefore likely to be considered as a formal learning activity. During your course at Bia education, you will receive a certificate attesting to the number of hours of continuous education granted to the event.

Then, it is the physiotherapist’s role to define whether the suggested training theme is related to his or her practice and will allow him or her to optimize his or her professional competence.
