Pregnant and Powerful
NOTE: Pregnant and Powerful will be running classes both in-person (Edson) and online starting September 2022.
This group exercise program is for individuals who would like some guidance with exercise through pregnancy. Pregnant and Powerful includes two 30 min noon-hour exercise classes per week and a program to follow at home. The primary goals of the Pregnant and Powerful program are to guide and empower patients to move in ways that feel good in their own bodies and to mitigate some of the discomforts of pregnancy.
Classes run from 12:15-12:45 pm. Mondays are in-person (Edson), and Wednesdays are online through Zoom.
Following delivery, once patients have been cleared for exercise, they are invited to return for an individualized exercise prescription.
A physician referral is required prior to participation in the Pregnant and Powerful program.
Physical activity can reduce your risk or help manage many pregnancy complications such as gestational diabetes, and gestational hypertension and improve low back and hip pain.
Contact your family doctor for a referral or call McLeod River Primary Care Network at (780) 723-2131 (Edson) or 780-779-0079 (Whitecourt) for more information or to register for this free program.
