“There is nothing else out there that takes all of the different aspects of health and compiles them together for a coach, trainer, or someone who works with women.”
Dr. Jessica Shepherd, OB/GYN, MBA
Director of Minimally Invasive Gynecology – University of Illinois Chicago
“Pelvic health awareness continues to be a subject that is not well known and this certification will allow fitness professionals to treat their clients in a comprehensive manner and collaborate with other health professionals. This certification offers a wealth of education regarding women’s health that is not often discussed and will likely change the lives of many women.“

Research and decades of firsthand experience all in one place to save you time and money
The Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification isn’t just about what the research says (although that’s important!). It’s about the combined experience of 16 leading women’s health experts who:
  •  Are physiotherapists, pre- and postnatal experts, psychologists, OB/GYNs, and doulas from 5 different countries
  •  Have a combined 230+ years of clinical and practical experience
  •  Are moms themselves
  •  Understand that every female client has a unique set of values, priorities, desires, resources, and goals that must be considered when designing an effective program to help them have their happiest, healthiest, safest and strongest pregnancy and postpartum experience
You owe it to your
clients and yourself.
I know you want to be the best coach you can be, serving your clients well and making a great income doing it. I did too!

Can you imagine putting your clients at risk of being injured, or even worse, increasing their risk of injury down the road?

Or having your clients feel like they’re working really hard but not seeing the results they’re looking for long-term, whether they’re aesthetic or performance-based?

Between our free articles, videos, and our Moms Gone Strong program, we’ve published almost 2,000 pages of evidence-based, body-positive, pre- and postnatal information.

We’ve helped hundreds of thousands of women in more than 70 countries around the world, and we’ve been called “The Gold Standard” for women’s health information.

We know this stuff inside and out! And now we’re bringing it to you.

Whether you work with pregnant women, newly postpartum women, or women who had their kiddos decades ago (yes, they’re still postpartum, too!), one thing is certain:
Your work matters.
Following proper nutrition, exercise, and rehab advice can profoundly change the outcome of your clients’ pregnancy and postpartum experience.
BONUS:
Once you’ve helped women during the various stages of pregnancy, THEY will spread the word about your unique knowledge and expertise throughout their communities, and your client roster will always be full.

There’s no question that pregnancy and childbirth put a lot of strain on the body, especially on a woman’s core and pelvic floor. Knowing how to help your clients exercise properly may:
  •  Reduce the severity of their Diastasis Recti (the abdominal separation that typically occurs in pregnancy)
  •  Reduce the likelihood or severity of leaking urine when they sneeze, cough, jump, or run
  •  Reduce the likelihood or severity of vaginal tearing during their delivery
  •  Reduce the likelihood that they will need a C-section
Did you know that:
“58% of pregnant women experience urinary incontinence by week 30 of their pregnancy.”
Obstetrics and Gynecology
“A combination of aerobic and resistance exercise at a moderate intensity for 30-60 minutes at least 3x/week has been shown to be safe and beneficial in the treatment of women with Gestational Diabetes.”
World Journal of Diabetes
“Exercising for 150 minutes or more per week was associated with a decreased risk of C-section when compared with less than an hour of exercise per week.”
Women’s Health Issues
Here’s What Some of the World’s Top Health and Fitness Professionals are Saying about Girls Gone Strong and our Coaching and Training Women Programs

It’s well vetted, validated, good content… all these things are important as you’re trying to progress and really make a difference for these women.”
Dr. Carrie Pagliano, PT, DPT, MTC
Women’s Health & Orthopaedic Clinical Specialist
“The one thing I love about the [Pre- & Postnatal] Coaching Certification is that there are so many things that we can do preventatively [to help women].”
Dr. Jessica Shepherd, OB/GYN, MBA
Director of Minimally Invasive Gynecology — University of Illinois Chicago
“Providing healthcare providers and health + fitness professionals with the best available information to make decisions for their clients is a really important part of this certification.”
Dr. Meryl Alappattu, DPT, PhD

  •  Appendices: A library of useful information for your long-term coaching success including the GGS Code of Ethics, food source lists, all about supplements, exercise categories, miscarriage and infant loss, and more.
This is a great question, but to be honest, as trite as it sounds, you really can’t compare this Certification to other certifications and courses, because there isn’t a comparison. 

We can absolutely guarantee 100% hands-down that you won’t find anything with the depth, breadth and quality of this Certification. And we can guarantee that no other certification was written and reviewed by 16 world-class experts from five countries including:
  •  6 physiotherapists
  •  4 pre- and postnatal experts
  •  1 OB/GYN
  •  1 midwife who’s a nurse practitioner
  •  1 doula
  •  3 PhDs in exercise science, psychology, and molecular biology.
And these experts didn’t just contribute a little bonus content for us. They created and reviewed all of it, some of them spending hundreds of hours working on it. And every chapter of our amazing textbook was created and reviewed by no fewer than six of these experts.

Additionally, you won’t find another Certification that comes with:

– A 150,000 word/~500-page hardcover textbook broken down into 5 units that walk you through everything you need to know about training women during and after pregnancy, and it includes HUNDREDS of sources/references

– A 100+ page workbook filled with questions and case studies

– An online portal filled with dozens of videos, custom assessment tools, downloadable PDFs, workout templates, and additional reading and resource materials

It can’t be compared to other Certifications because there aren’t any other Certifications like it, anywhere else. Period.

We’re also always keeping track of advances in coaching methods and research, so if you enroll in the Certification you’ll get updates a few times a year about emerging research and how it affects the material in the Certification.

Plus, every couple of years when we overhaul the curriculum, you’ll have the opportunity to purchase the updated version for a very nominal fee (essentially, the price of the textbook, shipping, and fulfillment costs).
The Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification is for any health and fitness professional who wants to better understand, connect with, serve, and empower their female clients. It’s for anyone who wants to join the revolution that’s allowing women to finally get the pre- and postnatal care they deserve.

Of the people who hire a coach or trainer the majority of them are women — and 85% of women will be pregnant at some point in their lives. This means that if you work with women, some of your clients are pre- and postnatal women.

Whether it’s to take your coaching career to a new level and become the go-to expert in your area, be a woman who empowers other women, or help women finally change the way they feel about themselves and their bodies (especially during pregnancy and postpartum), this Certification is for you.

The pregnancy and postpartum period are exceptional times in a woman’s life, and every woman’s experience is different, even from one pregnancy to the next. These variations require a unique understanding of what a woman may be experiencing, from both a psychological and physiological standpoint. We understand that every woman has a unique set of values, priorities, desires, resources, and goals that must be considered when designing an effective program to help her have her happiest, healthiest, safest and strongest pregnancy and postpartum experience.
Yes, you are still able to purchase our Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification, however, we do strongly recommend that you hold at least one other basic personal training or fitness certification from a major certifying body like NSCA, NASM, ACSM, etc. They each offer an important baseline foundation of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, and exercise science that will allow you to have a broader understanding of training concepts and application, and a better understanding of our material.

For example, our certification’s anatomy and physiology unit is approximately 65 to 70 pages long, and we are almost solely discussing the anatomy of the female core and pelvis and the physiology of pregnant and postpartum women. Additionally, being insured is incredibly important when working with clients. Many of the major certifying bodies offer insurance.

So yes, you can get it — and since it’s a self-paced course you can always purchase it on February 6th, and then wait to take it until you’ve completed another baseline cert, or you could wait until our registration opens again later this year.
If you work with women, even if you don’t think you work with pre- and postnatal women, you probably do. That’s because 85% of women will have a baby at some point in their lives, and as the saying goes, “once postnatal, always postnatal.” In other words, it’s almost guaranteed that if you work with women, you work with postnatal women! To be clear, this doesn’t mean that once a woman has children she has a permanent set of limitations or restrictions. It simply means that there are certain considerations a trainer needs to make, and knowledge a trainer needs to have to know how to work with postnatal women — even if they had their child(ren) five, 10, or 20 years ago.

Fitness Australia: IN PROGRESS - We are just in the final stages of getting our Fitness Australia approval. I fully expect it to go through, we're just clarifying a few tiny details to comply with some of their requirements (and I mean it's little stuff like making sure all of our contributors have at least 5 years experience -- all of our 16 contributors have at least 6 years of experience in their field, and some over 20!)

We have never been turned down for CEUs and certainly don’t anticipate being turned down now.

If your certifying body is not one of the ones to which we’ve applied for CEUs, you should be able to petition for them to accept the certification CEUs based on our acceptance by other organizations. We’ve had many students successfully petition and we’re always happy to help you in that process if you needed it.
Our Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification is a self-paced course. That means you can work through the materials at your own pace and make sure it fits your individual schedule.

The pace that seems to work well for many people is one chapter per week, including: reading the chapter in the textbook, watching any accompanying videos, answering the worksheet questions and case studies, digging into any relevant resources or reading materials, and possibly taking the unit exam if you’re at the end of a unit. Following that structure, you can expect to spend three to five hours per week on the materials. Since there are 22 chapters, you’ll finish your certification in four to five months.
Access to our online portal never expires. You’ll be able to refer back to your materials and resources throughout your career.
The Pre- & Post Coaching Certification was developed and reviewed by 16 women from 5 different countries who are leaders in their fields. They include: pelvic health, spine, and musculoskeletal physiotherapists, pre- and postnatal experts, OB-GYNs, doulas, and psychologists. These women have a combined 230+ years of clinical and practical experience and 25 children between them, and understand that every woman has a unique set of values, priorities, desires, resources, and goals that must be considered when designing an effective program to help her have her happiest, healthiest, safest and strongest pregnancy and postpartum experience.
The main difference between the two is the laser focus on the pre- and postnatal period versus broader information covering a woman's lifespan.
CPPC covers everything a health and fitness professional needs to know from a coaching, psychology, nutrition, exercise, and rest and recovery perspective for prenatal and postnatal women.
GGS-1 covers coaching, psychology, nutrition, exercise, and rest and recovery in adult women across their lifespan, including sex differences and how they do (or don't) affect coaching and programming.
I'm including a visual that illustrates the difference between the Anatomy & Physiology sections of the two certification as I think it's a great representation of how the information differs.
There's less than a 10% overlap in the content between the two certifications. The only content that overlaps is content that MUST overlap, like the muscles of the pelvic floor, or lists of food that are high in protein, etc.
The rest of the content is incredibly pre- and postnatal specific. And since 85% of women in the U.S. will have a baby at some point (that number is even higher in other countries) -- if you train women, this content is incredibly important.
Once a woman has a baby, she's postnatal forever. Not in the way that she's considered "delicate" or should be treated with kid gloves. But rather, her body has been through events that must be considered when training her. Plenty of women return to very intense exercise after they have children, but knowing how to help them get there safely (if that's a goal of theirs) requires specialized knowledge.
A few other important things to consider :
  •  VERY FEW health and fitness professionals are well-versed in working with pre- and postnatal women. While this is disappointing and scary in many ways, it presents an incredibly unique opportunity to be one of the few professionals in the world who truly understand how to help their WHOLE client, through all phases of her life, and become the go-to person for helping ALL women in your coaching practice.
  •  Our Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification is LITERALLY the only of it's kind in existence. What I mean by that is, it's the only Certification that checks all of these boxes: 
  •  it covers pregnancy AND postpartum, and it covers coaching, psychology, nutrition, anatomy and physiology, the birth process, recover, exercise, programming, and more 
  •  the content includes HUNDREDS of references -- 297 to be exact -- which is a ton for a topic that isn't super well-studied due to ethical reasons, and that's just in the 500 page textbook... there are many more in our online portal. It also marries the best available evidence with the 200+ years of clinical and practical experience our 16 experts have. 
The content was written, reviewed, and edited by 16 world-class women's health experts including 6 physiotherapists, 4 pre- and postnatal experts, 3 PhDs in psychology, molecular biology, and exercise science, 1 OB/GYN, 1 doula, and 1 midwife who is also a nurse practitioner, and every single chapter was written, reviewed, and edited by no fewer than 6 of these experts (and sometimes as many as 10)
Our Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification is globally relevant. To create this certification, we’ve brought together 16 world-class women’s health professionals from 5 countries/territories (US, Canada, Mexico, UK, and Australia)
And as always, if you get it and decide it's not for you, we offer a 60-day money back guarantee, so there's no risk!
The full investment in the course is $1200, but if you pay in full, you’ll save $200 on the Certification!
You’re protected with our 100% risk-free, money-back guarantee. We know that the Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification has the power to change the lives of women everywhere, making for a better pregnancy and postpartum experience, healing their core and pelvic floor years after pregnancy, and empowering them to feel comfortable in their own skin.

And that’s not hype — that’s straight from the mouths of the women who’ve completed our program, all of whom are coaches and trainers, and several of whom experienced previous pregnancies without our program and felt that the Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification was the difference.
