About Your Instructor
Dr. Sophia Veiras
Hi! I’m Sophia, and I’ll be your instructor for this webinar.
I graduated in 2015 with my Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Northeastern University. After graduating with my DPT, I continued at NU within their College of Professional Studies for an Advanced Graduate Certificate in Orthopedics. Since then, I’ve pursued advanced knowledge and credentials within strength training, pelvic health, and pregnancy, with a special interest in bridging the gap between women’s health and elite sports performance.
Physical activity in pregnancy is associated with minimal risks and has been shown to benefit most women, although some modification to exercise routines may be necessary as a result of normal anatomical and physiologic changes and fetal requirements. Outside of obstetric or medical complications or contraindications, pregnant women should be encouraged to continue or initiate safe physical activities.
Despite current recommendations encouraging >150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity per week, incorporating a variety of aerobic and muscle-strengthening activities, and limiting sedentary time, the sad reality is that the vast majority of pregnant women are not meeting these guidelines.
This webinar will provide you with the knowledge needed to empower your pregnant clients to get and stay active throughout pregnancy. Read my full bio here.
