What makes this Certification different from every other Certification in the industry? 
It's the world's only comprehensive, evidence-based, interdisciplinary Certification focused on coaching pre- & postnatal women.
  • Our Experts - This Cert was developed by 21 world-leading women’s health experts from 5 countries (U.S., Canada, Mexico, Australia, and UK) and 12 fields of study including strength coaches, physios, Registered Dietitians, PhDs in psychology, exercise science, and gender studies, OB/GYNs, and more. (In fact, the three female co-authors of the PN Certification helped develop this Cert making it the perfect complement to PN Level 1.) 
  • Our Curriculum - This comprehensive Certification will help you master the art and science of pre- & postnatal coaching and psychology, nutrition, exercise, anatomy and physiology, rest, and recovery through an interdisciplinary, globally relevant lens. You’ll learn to help women with issues related to diastasis recti, pelvic floor, body image, hormone issues, incontinence, exercise & nutrition modification, behavior change psychology, postpartum depression, pelvic pain, pelvic organ prolapse, and so much more (all within your scope of practice).
  • Our Evidence-Based Approach - You’ll get all the latest women-specific research (there are 1000+ references in our 600-page textbook!), integrated with 400+ years of practical and clinical experience of our world-class experts. 
  • Our Reputation - Our experts have worked with organizations like Johns Hopkins, Baylor Medical, University of Florida, Precision Nutrition, and Yale, and our Certification is recommended by industry legends like Dr. John Berardi, Greg Nuckols, Dr. Krista Scott-Dixon, Dr. John Rusin, and renowned Olympic Sprint Coach Stu McMillan. Organizations like NSCA, Perform Better, Goodlife Fitness, Kabuki Strength, and IDEA Fit trust our experts to educate their coaches and trainers on working with women.
  • Our Focus on Psychology - This Certification dives deep into women-specific behavior-change psychology and often-ignored topics that affect a woman’s health including: body image struggles, miscarriage and loss, postpartum depression, loss of identity, feelings of shame, guilt, self-judgment, lack of confidence, the comparison trap, unrealistic expectations, and diet culture.
Who created the Women’s Coaching Specialist Certification?
Molly Galbraith, CSCS
GGS Woman-in-charge, creator of GGS Academy
"When I first started in the fitness industry 19 years ago, I was often the only woman in the weight room. All my teachers and mentors were men, and there was almost zero women-specific coaching and training education available. What was available was outdated, shaming, or steeped in diet culture.

Given 67–75% of all people who hire a coach or trainer are women—that’s not OK.

Women deserve better.

So GGS pulled together 20 trailblazing women from 12 fields of study to create this industry-changing Certification that teaches health, fitness, and nutrition professionals (like you) how to help pre- & postnatal women feel strong, confident, and empowered in their lives and bodies."
Developed by 21 of the world's most trusted women’s health, fitness, and nutrition experts.
Using the latest research and the 400+ years of practical and clinical experience of our world-class, trailblazing female experts, we created the world most comprehensive, evidence-based, and interdisciplinary Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification.
Our curriculum was written, developed, and reviewed by Molly Galbraith, CSCS, and 20 other world-class women’s health experts spanning 12 fields of study. That includes some of the top names in the industry, including...
Precision Nutrition* Curriculum Developers:
Dr. Krista Scott-Dixon, Dr. Helen Kollias, and Camille DePutter
As well as industry trailblazers:
Dr. Jessica Shepherd, OB-GYN; Dr. Meryl Alappattu, DPT; Marika Hart, PT; Dr. Carrie Pagliano, DPT; and Dr. Sandy Hilton, DPT
We brought together experts from the U.S., Canada, UK, Mexico, and Australia to make this the most comprehensive, globally-relevant Certification in the world.
*Our collaboration with members of Precision Nutrition's curriculum development team has made the Pre- and Postnatal Coaching Certification the perfect complement to Precision Nutrition Certifications.

Final Note
Women make up 67–75% of all people who hire a coach, trainer, or nutrition professional. What’s more, 85% of women will have a baby at some point in their life.

More women than ever want to eat and exercise in a way that keeps them safe, healthy, and strong during pregnancy and postpartum. 

And yet — pre- and postnatal-specific health, fitness, and nutrition topics are rarely covered in Certs. 🤔⁠

Spoiler alert: a paragraph about heart rate and relaxin ain't gonna cut it. 🙄⁠

When you become a Certified Pre- & Postnatal Coach you’ll get everything you need to safely and effectively coach and train women during the entire pregnancy and postpartum experience (within your scope of practice).

By the time you graduate, you’ll feel qualified to write expert training programs customized for each trimester and every stage of postpartum recovery.

You’ll also know how to coach pre- and postnatal-specific nutrition, and use women-specific behavior change psychology to empower pregnant and postpartum women to have healthier, stronger, more confident pregnancies and postpartum experiences.
