Hear From CPPC Graduates
Dr. Mac Nwosu, 31
“I am a sport and women’s health physical therapist, as well as a certified strength and conditioning specialist.

I recommend the CPPC without hesitation; this certification has given me all the tools required to educate, train, and motivate my pre- and postnatal clients and patients.

I will never lose another client because she became pregnant and I couldn't treat her due to my ignorance.”
Sarah Jamieson, 40
“I have a passion for educating health and fitness professionals about building strong, durable, resilient clients.

A big part of being an educator is constantly sharpening my own skills by learning from industry leaders like GGS.

Since graduating from their Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification and increasing my knowledge in this area, my business and opportunities have grown significantly.

I've created my own products and courses, traveled and taught workshops, and even collaborated with other industry educators like Dr. John Rusin as a teacher for his Pain Free Performance Specialist Certification.

I'm very grateful to Girls Gone Strong for providing such comprehensive, evidence-based information about working with pre- and postnatal clients that I can pass on to the health and fitness professionals I teach.”
Mikaela Lynn Johnson
“This certification and GGS are the future of this industry where women are respected, empowered, supported, and treated as whole beings.

I’m a licensed massage therapist, Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, Doula, and educator. And I'm on the Board of Directors for the Doulas Association of Southern California (DASC), so I'm incredibly passionate about this topic.

Their certifications are a much-needed reminder of why I chose this field, and what I love about it. While reading the textbooks, I found myself weeping tears of joy and relief that there’s finally an evidence-based text geared to the unique challenges of women.

I love that this certification embraces all goals and bodies and I firmly believe it’s driving a new paradigm in the fitness industry where women aren’t expected to constantly be dieting and shrinking. I couldn’t be prouder to work alongside Girls Gone Strong to be part of this change.”
Tom Bullock, 26
L4-PT, PN-1, GGS-1, CPPC
"I knew I didn't want to just be another trainer who did ‘a little bit of everything.’

I wanted to coach women, and from the start, I knew I wanted my coaching style to be influenced by the work of Molly and Girls Gone Strong.

I also knew I couldn't be a woman's coach without completing CPPC. Without having those personal experiences -- I simply couldn't connect with and understand my clients the way I needed to -- to give them the coaching they deserve without it.

It's the early days yet, but I've built a community where we preach self-love and a sustainable long-term realistic approach to fitness and nutrition.

And I've been successful enough that I've been able to leave the UK and move to Ireland to live with my girlfriend -- due in part to the success I've had from what I've learned from this certification."
Anne Townsend, 36
"I was a brand new trainer, but this certification gave what I needed to confidently work with pre- and postnatal women.

In fact, my very first two clients had postpartum issues that I was able to help them with.

I am currently living out my dream of empowering women for a living, and I have GGS to thank for that!"
Ellysia Noble, 35
"I've been coaching women in fitness for over a decade, and this certification not only helped me with my own postpartum period, but my confidence in coaching pre- and postnatal women has skyrocketed since graduating in May of 2018.

The information I have learnt from CPPC has been GOLDEN, and the support from the GGS team is second-to-none.

If you’re looking to learn how to safely and effectively coach a pregnant and postpartum person, then without a doubt you’ll LOVE this certification."

John Berardi, PhD, CSCS, co-founder of Precision Nutrition, founder of Change Maker Academy
"If you work in health and fitness, I highly recommend learning from my friends at Girls Gone Strong. Their Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification is second to none and is an absolute must for any coach or trainer who works with women."
Dr. Krista Scott-Dixon, Head of Curriculum Development at Precision Nutrition
"On average, women are much more likely than men to seek out health and fitness information. Yet to date, few coaching organizations have truly met women’s diverse needs — until now.

I recommend Girls Gone Strong’s Pre- and Postnatal Coaching Certification to anyone who wants to help women have a safe, healthy, and strong pregnancy and postpartum experience.”
Jonathan Goodman, founder of The Personal Trainer Development Center and the Online Trainer Academy
"The Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification from Girls Gone Strong is exactly what the fitness industry needs. Anytime someone asks me about training pregnant or postpartum women, I send them to GGS.

They’re the best in our industry when it comes to training women. If you train women or ever plan to, I recommend you learn from them."
The Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification qualifies for continuing education credits with the following organizations worldwide, including:
Even if your certification isn’t listed above, CPPC has never been turned down for CECs or CEUs from any organization. Our students have successfully petitioned and gained CECs / CEUs from ACE, NETA, NFPT, AAPTE, IFPA, and many more.
Developed by world-class women’s health experts
Developed by Molly Galbraith, CSCS and co-written and reviewed by women like Helen Kollias, PhD, Marika Hart, PT, Dr. Jessica Shepherd, OB-GYN, Dr. Carrie Pagliano, Dr. Sandy Hilton, and nine other world-class experts, our Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification is the synthesis of everything we’ve learned over a combined 250+ years of real-world coaching and research in women.
Hi, I’m Molly Galbraith, co-founder of Girls Gone Strong and creator of the Coaching & Training Women Academy.
At GGS, we noticed there was a massive gap in the world of pre- and postnatal health & fitness information.

85% of women will have a baby at some point in their life — and yet, most health and fitness professionals don’t know how to help them.
That’s why 16 world-class women’s health professionals came together to create a resource the world had never seen.

A certification that would help health and fitness professionals confidently coach and train women during pregnancy and postpartum.

Something that covered not just pre- and postnatal specific anatomy and physiology, or exercise and programming, but something that dives deep into coaching, psychology, nutrition, the birth process, rest, recovery, and more.

Something that incorporated all key members of a pre- and postnatal woman’s healthcare team: pelvic health physiotherapists, pre- and postnatal fitness experts, OB-GYNs, midwives, doulas, psychologists, and more.

Something that brings together the best available research and evidence with the 250+ years of practical and clinical experience of our experts.

Something that didn’t exist -- but that women and our industry desperately needed.
In short, we wanted to create the most comprehensive, interdisciplinary, evidence-based resource the world has ever seen.
And that’s exactly what we did.

If you agree it’s time to raise the standard for coaching pre- and postnatal women...

And if you want to keep your clients safe, healthy, and strong during and after pregnancy…

Then I’d love for you to join us by enrolling in our Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification when enrollment opens September 3rd.

Can’t wait to work with you!

"Girls Gone Strong’s Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification exceeds all expectations. There isn’t another resource like it available anywhere in the world.

Seriously, if you’re interested in empowering women on any level, then this certification is for you (even if you’re a spouse, friend, or healthcare team member)! I’m proud to work with GGS to improve the standard of care for women everywhere -- and I highly recommend you join us!
Dr. Jessica Shepherd OB-GYN, MBA
Women’s Health Medical Expert, Baylor University Medical College
"This is a fantastic pre- and postnatal resource for health and fitness professionals with extensive depth, specificity, and comprehensiveness of content in this area.

It’s well-vetted and validated information that will help take your work with pre and postnatal clients to the next level!

Anyone who works with women and movement -- in strength training, Yoga, Pilates, CrossFit -- can truly benefit from taking this certification."
Dr. Carrie Pagliano, PT, DPT, MTC
Women’s Health & Orthopaedic Clinical Specialist
"With 18 years experience as a physiotherapist and pre- and postnatal expert, I’ve done heaps of continuing education, and I’ve never seen anything as comprehensive as this certification.

It's easy to think it’s just for fitness professionals, but truly all members of a woman's healthcare team can benefit greatly from it.

If you're on the fence, I have to say JUST DO IT! It's one of the best investments you’ll make in yourself and your clients."
Marika Hart, PT
“There’s a global need for high-quality, well-vetted pre- and postnatal education for health and fitness professionals.

And Girls Gone Strong’s Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification helps fill this gap and promote better health for women everywhere.

I’m continually impressed by GGS’s commitment to the integrity of their information and proud to be involved in the development of this curriculum.”
Dr. Sandy Hilton, PT, DPT, MTC

“Every woman’s pregnancy and postpartum experience is different, and this certification gives healthcare providers the tools and skills they need to collaborate with other women’s healthcare providers to improve client and patient outcomes.

I’ve never seen another pre- and postnatal resource that’s this comprehensive, and I’m really proud to be part of the GGS team.”
Dr. Meryl Alappattu, DPT, PhD
"If you’re a coach, trainer, or any member of a woman’s healthcare team, I recommend you take this certification.

As pelvic health physio and expert in women’s nutrition and pain neuroscience, I’m proud to be part of the group who brought this game-changing Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification to the industry.

Be part of something meaningful by joining us in our mission to improve the standard of care for pre- and postnatal women."
Heba Shaheed, Pelvic Health Physiotherapist
Founder, The Pelvic Expert
"This certification gives health and fitness professionals exactly what they need to safely and confidently help their pre- and postnatal clients and patients.

Even if you're a pelvic health physio like I am, you’ll be amazed by how much you’ll benefit from this certification."
Dr. Jessie Thomas, PT, DPT, MTC, WCS
Spine and Board Certified Women's Health Clinical Specialist
"As a mom of three, PN-2 nutrition coach, trainer, and doula I have years of experience coaching and supporting pre- and postnatal women in both Mexico and Canada.

If you want to know how to support, empower, and connect with your pre- and postnatal clients (even if you haven’t had kids yourself), this certification is for you.

You get community, information, skills, practice, case studies...everything you need to be a great coach.

So this is your chance. Are you going to become a Certified Pre- & Postnatal Coach? Or are you going to be left behind?"
Carolina Belmares

Industry-leading men are benefiting from our work as well.
"I've been following Girls Gone Strong for years now, and have pointed dozens (if not hundreds) of people in their direction.

I'm constantly impressed by everything they put out and by their commitment to following the scientific evidence over industry orthodoxy. If you coach women, you owe it to yourself and your clients to learn from Girls Gone Strong.”
Greg Nuckols, CSCS
Stronger by Science
"The work that Girls Gone Strong is doing is desperately needed.

Their Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification raises awareness about important women's health issues and provides quality education for health and fitness professionals.

I'm proud to recommend their work because I've seen firsthand how it's changing the world.
Antony Lo, PT
the physio detective
"As a doctor who understands the importance of good nutrition, exercise, and long-term behavior change, I love Girls Gone Strong’s approach to coaching pre- and postnatal women.

Many health professionals underestimate the power of understanding psychology when it comes to helping clients and patients get results, and I think it’s the missing piece in many health professionals’ toolboxes. The Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification will teach you all of that and much more. I highly recommend it."
Dr. Spencer Nadolsky
board-Certified Family and Obesity Physician
"I've been a fan of Molly, all the other top-rate coaches involved, and the entire 'vibe' of Girls Gone Strong since its inception. I love what they stand for, what they encourage, and how they go out of their way to make the fitness industry (and, in many ways, the world) a better place.

I know first-hand the amount of work, detail, and passion the GGS crew put into this certification. I've seen Molly scrap entire CHAPTERS of a book because it didn't meet their standards. The amount of integrity that takes is off-the-charts impressive."
Tony Gentilcore
Owner of CORE / Co-Founder of Cressey Sports Performance
"Girls Gone Strong’s Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification is the best in the industry. As a strength coach with an expertise in performance and injury prevention, I recommend it to any coach or trainer who wants to know exactly how to keep their clients safe, healthy and strong, during and after their pregnancy.

If you coach women or want to, I highly recommend you learn from Girls Gone Strong.
Dr. John Rusin
Internationally Recognized Strength Coach, Speaker, & Writer
"The way Girls Gone Strong takes critical and complex topics and presents them in a highly actionable way is remarkable.

That’s why several Mark Fisher Fitness Trainers are CPPC students or graduates. It’s given them the tools and skills they need to coach our pregnant and postpartum Ninjas safely and effectively.

If you coach women, I highly recommend you invest in their certification.”

University Education
$40,000 - $100,000 USD

4 years of undergrad (if you attend full time)
4-8+ years of undergrad (if you attend part-time)

Additional costs for textbooks, study guides, housing, gas, parking, students fees, moving, and much more!

Campus and Classrooms — often learning from a university requires being on campus or driving to a classroom, using up even more of your time and energy.
Learning is informative in an academic format with less access to a variety of experts in multiple disciplines, less practical experience, and less flexibility to learn in a way that works for you.
Professors who lack real-world experience doing what their students want to do often leave their students feeling confused, frustrated, stuck, and struggling to build their business.

To expand on what's written above, if you decided to go back to school for an exercise science degree or to become a health professional, you'd likely spend anywhere from $5,000 - $12,000 USD per semester. 

If you did a four-year degree, with eight semesters, you'd be looking at spending upward of $40,000 - $100,000 USD. 

Even worse — many university classes are missing the most important thing: real-world coaching opportunities. And most professors haven't had much (if any) real-world coaching experience. That's why many students struggle after they finish their degree. 

It's also why, in our Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification, we'll share our proven coaching system that's guaranteed to get results for anyone who wants your help. We also give our students direct, unlimited access to our world-class GGS coaching experts. We're are here for you!

And, we're making it accessible to you at a super affordable price.
Frequently Asked Questions
Note from Molly Galbraith
Our Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification delivers a deep understanding of coaching pre- and postnatal women and the ability to help your clients stay safe, healthy, and strong, during and after pregnancy.

Get started today.
Only opens twice a year.
If you’re like most folks who enroll in our certification, you’re probably aware — maybe from personal experience — that there’s a serious gap in high-quality, well-vetted, up-to-date information about helping pre- and postnatal women stay safe.

This gap is causing women to have poor experiences during and after pregnancy, including lasting low back and pelvic pain, urinary incontinence (leaking urine), difficulty returning to exercise, and more.  

What’s more, many of these conditions could be prevented, or at least mitigated, with the information provided in our certification.

That’s why the industry needs qualified health and fitness professionals like you.

If you want to help pre- and postnatal women get and stay healthy, safe, and strong, then I highly suggest you enroll in our Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification and help us raise the standard of care for women everywhere.
