“... driving a new paradigm in fitness where women aren’t expected to always be dieting and shrinking.”
“I’m a licensed massage therapist, Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, Doula, and educator, so I'm incredibly passionate about this topic.

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 is 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.”

“... the Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification was the reason I was hired at my first job.”
“I was a brand new trainer when I enrolled in the Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification, but it gave me exactly what I needed to confidently work with women during and after pregnancy.

In fact, it’s the reason I was hired at my first job, and my first two clients had postpartum issues that I was able to help them with because of what I learned in the certification.

Now I’m doing what I love and fulfilling my dream of empowering women for a living, and I have GGS to thank for that!”

“I knew I couldn't be a woman's coach without completing this Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification. Without personally experiencing pregnancy — I couldn't connect with and understand my clients the way I needed to — to give them the coaching they deserve.

Because of this certification and how my coaching style has been influenced by Molly and GGS, I've built a community for women where we preach self-love and a sustainable long-term approach to fitness and nutrition.

And I've been successful enough to move to Ireland to live with my girlfriend.”

“... my confidence in coaching pre- and postnatal women has skyrocketed since finishing this certification.”
“I've been coaching women in fitness for over a decade, and this certification helped me with my own postpartum recovery, and my confidence in coaching pre- and postnatal women has skyrocketed since finishing the Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification.

The information I’ve learnt has been a GAME CHANGER, 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.”
Developed by 16 world-class women’s health experts
Developed by Molly Galbraith, CSCS, and co-written and reviewed by Helen Kollias, PhD, Marika Hart, PT, Dr. Jessica Shepherd, OB-GYN, Dr. Carrie Pagliano, DPT, Dr. Sandy Hilton, DPT, and ten other world-class experts, our Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification is the synthesis of everything we’ve learned over a combined 300+ years of real-world coaching and research in women.
Hi, I’m Molly Galbraith, co-founder and woman-in-charge of Girls Gone Strong, a global movement of 800,000+ people passionate about women’s health, fitness, and empowerment.
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 combined 300+ 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 of care for 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 February 4th.

Can’t wait to work with you!

xoxo,
Molly Galbraith

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.
