Course Reviews

Suzanne, ACE Certified Professional

This online course is particularly good. The sections are clear and understandable with links and videos that keep it interactive and bring the info to life. It’s really well organized and easy to break into sections for whenever I needed to stop and start. The content is totally relevant to what we, as instructors/ trainers, need to know about working with prenatal clients/ new moms.

Amber, ACE Certified Professional

Great information and very easy to digest. Moves at a reasonable speed. Great test at the end.


I’m a nurse and currently pregnant and your program is truly inspiring! I love how your certification program is challenging, practical and based on best practice, so rare to find a program like yours! Thank you again for creating a wonderful program! It truly will change my own practice and what I promote to the community.


I LOVED this course. It was wonderfully put together and I have joked with some of my friends that I learned more about pregnancy during this course than I did while I was actually pregnant.


This course was extremely helpful to understand how to properly train and support pregnancy and postpartum clients. I feel better equipped to support my clients in a variety of exercise modalities and better meet their needs.

Brittany, ACE Certified Professional

This was a fantastic course! So informative, with useful tips and guidelines. The example exercises and demonstrations were great. I also appreciate that the course was not too technical. It was easy for anyone to watch and understand. I also loved the trainer's passion for the subject.


Really great course! Explains everything that a woman goes through during pregnancy. Informative and practical.


The material was well written and easy to follow along with. I am currently 25 weeks pregnant with my second and I felt like the material presented fit well into what I experienced in my first pregnancy and in my current pregnancy now. I also have to mention that the videos from the Oh Baby Fitness instructor were very informational and brought the reading material to life.
