BRAVA Certification

BRAVA Certification

BRAVA was born from the idea that there are gaps in knowledge among many birth professionals. This gap prevents us from providing the best possible holistic care for our clients, patients and families. We want our BRAVA participants with their BRAVA Certification to feel confident answering the many questions their clients bring to them. This will allow graduates to better serve the birthing person and improve their own business.

BRAVA is an 8 week live virtual class for 90 minutes each week that will consist of weekly lecture, discussion, videos, handout and guest speakers.

Topics that will be included are core and pelvic floor function, Diastasis Recti, pelvic floor dysfunction, exercise during pregnancy and postpartum including product and program recommendations, birth and protecting the perineum, postpartum healing, hormones, intimacy and sex, how to make a good referral, business marketing and growth.

BRAVA has been credentialed for 10 DONA International continuing education credits

Join BRAVA for our next session beginning LIVE via Zoom on Monday, August 2nd at 8:00pmCST

"I just completed the BRAVA Core and Pelvic Floor Certification with Heather Struve, PT, and Sarah Knight PT. BRAVA is a well researched and dynamic 8-week live zoom class designed with the astute birth/bodyworker in mind. Whether you are a doula wanting a greater knowledge of the core and pelvic floor to help your clients make wise choices about provider or birthplace, a chiropractor hoping to put a few more tools in your care regime, or a new midwife needing to cement the pelvic floor and core anatomy to guide your clients to a happier birth and postpartum recovery, this class is for you! You will finish with a deep and clear understanding of the core and pelvic floor anatomy, tools to help your clients including assessments and handouts, a clear understanding of when to refer a how to stay within your scope of practice, and a network of local birth professionals to grow with. Sarah and Heather have done their research and are a delight!" Local Homebirth Midwife
