The course simply points you to the ACOG guidelines for the quiz. I did not learn anything outside of those guidelines, and could use some more bulk in this course such as more important muscle groups to be aware of and perhaps breathing techniques for women who want to keep weight training.

It has me aware of the resources and how I can begin a dialogue with clients--I can learn more about this to become more of an expert.

Informative, clear and understandable
