    This hybrid 3-day course (8hr online) will focus on the physical and physiological changes of pregnancy, with the goal of equipping orthopedic manual therapists of varying backgrounds to skillfully and confidently work with pregnant women. The course will cover relevant anatomy, physiology, and medical precautions necessary for working with an obstetric population. Specific neurologic and orthopedic topics will be addressed as they relate to the obstetric population and contemporary exercise guidelines for pregnancy will be outlined and discussed. Special topics in obstetrics will also be presented to provide participants with requisite knowledge on specialty populations, physical issues, and use of braces and supports within obstetrics.
