4 Strategies for Prolapse in Fitness Coaching

by Sep 27, 2017

If you’re training postnatal women, you are definitely training clients with Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP), whether you know it or not. To be fair, your client might not even know it.

It can be a difficult conversation for your clients to start if they do know, as they may struggle with feelings of embarrassment if they are experiencing symptoms of incontinence, pain, or heaviness in the pelvic area.

I encourage you to start the conversation yourself. Even if it feels uncomfortable for you. Ask some questions about common symptoms, let your client know that these things are common after pregnancy, and refer them to a women’s health physiotherapist for an assessment.

Most importantly, let your client know that they can absolutely still train and do challenging workouts, and that you’ll be able to guide them through this in a safe way.

Below are my top 4 strategies for coaching clients with prolapse.

If you are a fitness or health professional working with the pregnant or postnatal population, learning as much as possible about the pregnant and postpartum body is necessary to understand postpartum recovery and long-term health.  My course, the Postnatal Fitness Specialist Academy, is a great place to build a foundation of knowledge about these specific considerations and so much more, and it is open for registration until April 23rd.  Click the photo for more details!
