PCES Certification

Why focus on women's health?

Women are not getting the pregnancy and postpartum care they deserve

or even the exercise advice they deserve heading into menopause.
Dr Sarah Duvall Teaching

Women often make up more than half of the normal clientele in PT clinics, gyms and studios.

But most educational programs do not even cover the basics of working with pregnant and postpartum women. Not to mention perimenopause and menopause when those hormonal changes can leave a woman’s body more vulnerable to injury, much like the postpartum time period! It’s no wonder so many women get prolapse when they go through menopause. They aren’t exercising in a system that supports them. If they are taught how to manage pressure properly and with great technique, then many cases of prolapse could be prevented. This course isn’t just for those that are pregnant or newly postpartum, it’s women that want to support a lifetime of healthy exercise.

The PCES Certification vs going back to school

Do you need to go back to school to learn more about women's health?

Going back to school is time-consuming, not to mention enormously expensive! Taking a key course, like the PCES course, will give you the confidence to start working with pregnant and postpartum women today. The goal of the PCES course is to sum up all the school, practical experience, and evidence-based research into an easy-to-understand course. Our graduates not only walk away with an understanding of the major issues that plague women but solutions on how to actually help them! All at a fraction of the cost of going back to school.
