It was one courageous decision that completely changed my life on August 7 2009. 

After arriving in Northern California, as a newy single first time mom with no friends or family close by, I made the decision to turn down a high profile client so I could remain securing my attachment with my daughter. 

This decision led me to dig deep and find a way to provide for myself and my daughter without compromising my time away from her during such a challenging time.

Three days of immense trust, I began meditating and repeating to myself that in every challenge there is an opportunity. On the third day, I received an answer with a clear vision. 

Little did I know my challenging personal journey would become my service and contribution to parents and children and professionals who work with them. 

The tremendous amount of years I spent studying and training in several fields in addition to a wealth of experience I obtained, expanded to give birth to my International Parenting & Health Institute currently represented in 59 countries.

“I didn’t regret for a second that I went to study at IPHI.

This school really breaks all stereotypes and provides quality knowledge on sleep.”

“Hi Mar,

I wanted to express my gratitude this morning for the IPHI program and your approach to sleep.

I have been applying the foundations with my 7 month old son over the past months and working up the hierarchy of soothing and last night was the first night we withdrew hands on support to sleep and he did so well! I was dreading it because he’s such an emotive baby but he cried on and off for 15 mins while my husband sat present and supported him and then drifted off to sleep and had the best sleep of his life.

With our first we hired a consultant who jumped right to sleep training and it was such a rough couple of nights on me as a mama. Looking back so many foundational elements were off and I didn’t know any better so I’m ever so grateful on a personal level that the program has taught me so much!

I’m also on my last week of support for another baby who has been doing so great without sleep training and I’m so excited about it! Her mom is so happy with the progress and I feel so well equipped to be able to navigate all the set backs that arise.

I still feel like I have a bunch to learn but what I’ve learned so far has been great.

Thanks again for everything so far and I look forward to sharing my upcoming journey with you!”

 

~Ell P, Maternity & Child Sleep Consultant

Kristy

The Maternity and Child Sleep component two class from yesterday was excellent.  I just finished listening.  I feel like I am starting to really grasp the concept of the IPHI holistic way of doing things, and I have to tell you that I am so grateful I chose this program.  What you said in class about this being a very serious profession is so true….and I’m so grateful you have helped me to see that.  In the beginning I really wanted a very simple, straight-forward way of doing things… that seems to be the way other programs are structured, from what I can see.  But now I am just so grateful I chose to go with IPHI, because I know that myself and my clients will be much better off for me having obtained this education through you.  To be able to treat sleep problems holistically is such a gift to those I will work with…I truly feel like I am being given an opportunity not only to help families sleep better, but to help them lead healthier, happier lives.  Thank you so much for the work you do, and for being so patient with my questioning mind!  I have to say that like you, I am a skeptic by nature….and at first I wondered why everything had to be so complicated….why can’t we just get to the sleep training?? Thankfully I have come around!  I’m now totally convinced of the importance of what IMPI has to offer the sleep world.  I hope this holistic approach becomes an integral part of the overall profession in time.  Thanks again.

~Kristy C, Maternity & Child Sleep Consultant

Dr. Minori Ota

“During my studies with IPHI Maternity & Child Sleep Japan, I was able to learn the fact that I didn’t know anything about my child’s sleep. I have become able to give sound  advice to parents and children who are suffering from sleep in their daily practice. By taking component two of the program, I deepened my knowledge of childcare and sleep! (Because it is not taught in medical school or pediatrics) I enjoyed IPHI Japanese instructor, Aya Aiba’s lectures! I have been positively influenced by Aya’s lifestyle,. It changed my life!”

~Dr. Minori Ota

Veronique

“Mar De Carlo has knowledge in many areas, she is a great personality, a very powerful person and thanks to her engagement and talent it really brought me a lot of personal motivation and helped me set up a very good start for my business. Thanks Mar for your vision and positive approach!”

~Veronique Goldbrunner, Baby Planner and Greenproofer

Dr. Tsugumi Takechi

“During my studies with Maternity & Child Sleep, IPHI Japan, I learned again that there are many people who are worried about their children’s sleep, and as a mother, I no longer feel lonely when my child cries at night. As a pediatrician, I was able to sympathize with him, but I couldn’t find or propose a solution. Through IPHI, connections with people have expanded. I have come to have a holistic idea, which is the method of IPHI, even in daily medical care.”

~Dr. Tsugumi Takechi

Diane

I am thrilled to be certified Integrative Adult Sleep Coach! So exciting! Can hardly wait to help adults and teens! Thanks so much for the support. Lauren has been so wonderful as well. 🙂 I look forward to completing perhaps another Health and Wellness course with IPHI.

~Diane D, Integrative Adult Sleep Coach

Nadia

“I got to know Mar when I started on the IPHI Certified Baby Planner course. She was the one leading the lessons and guided me through each of my post-lesson exercises. Eventually, I approached her when I had a specific questions for my business. I booked her for a short session and the short amount of time with her was so powerful. Mar has the greatest respect for my time and made sure that I got the most value out of my experience with her regardless of the short time we had. I never looked back since. My business is growing slowly but steadily, and Mar has now become my go-to business coach that I talk to regularly to bounce off ideas, seek advice from and just learn from in general!”

~Nadia Lambrechts, Founder of 40 Weeks Baby Planning & Maternity Concierge

Mariana

I would like to to express how much I value your Maternity & Child Sleep Certification course. Waking up early to listen and learn more about how to help families with QUALITY AND RESPECT – after 2 previous certifications – changes everything.

~Mariana Britto, Maternity & Child Sleep Consultant

Dr. Sayoko Shirai

“I took the IPHI Pregnant Woman and Infant Sleep Consultant Qualification Course and became able to explain with confidence and grounds to moms who are suffering from sleep during medical examinations and outpatients. It was helpful to prepare the sleeping environment for my child. I have come to always keep in mind that (not only sleep), “there are different ways for each child and family,” and “the happiness of parents affects the child.”

~Dr. Sayoko Shirai

Chelsea

“Hi Mar,

I just want to thank you for your time and patience over the last few months. I just wanted to say ‘thank you’ once again for making this career of mine possible. After launching my business only a few months ago, I’ve had success after success, and am now booked up. Thank you for making this possible for me – the ability to do something I’m so passionate about, the ability to work from home while I look after our son in a career that changes people’s lives, and the ability to be my own boss (and take holidays whenever I like!).

I have found Mar’s course to be very valuable, and feel as though it’s given me a lot of the knowledge and confidence that I need to navigate this next stage in my life. I’ve put my hand to many different ventures, but never felt the same passion that I do with this, and I feel as though this course has encouraged me to use that passion effectively so that I can make a difference.

I also feel that your passion is evident throughout the course with your consistent pursuit for excellence, and striving to do things the right way.

Thank you again”

~ Chelsea Connolly Sleep Consulting

Arielle

“I feel so grateful to have Mar De Carlo as not only a business coach, but a true friend. I was just beginning my solo business as an Eating Psychology Coach when I began attending Mar’s “Business, Plan and Play” groups last year. And in attending, I quickly realized the amazing service, guidance and support that Mar provides with passion and grace. She is an inspiration simply by being who she is–a strong, compassionate, innovative woman who embodies the beautiful balance of work, play, family and life. Any time I need so advice around my business, whether it is looking over some copy, or providing heartfelt and experienced suggestions around what path to take, Mar is always willing to help. I am so excited to bare witness to the beginning process of Marin Business Sanctuary. Mar provides a much-needed flavor to the entrepreneurial experience that all of us can benefit from greatly!”

~Arielle Brown, Eating Psychology Coach

 

Michela

“Mar De Carlo has been the best connection I made and to meet her has been a great present for me and for my business. She made me open my mind and my eyes and now it is clear that my way will be that of supporting and helping women in becoming conscious and happy moms.Her guide has always been so stimulating and supportive and I really hope to be as good as her with my future clients.”

~ Michela Fratus, Baby Planner

Kate

“I was experiencing deepness in my anxiety and depression that I didn’t entirely know how to address. Needless to say, my life was in something of chaos while I was in the business course course with Mar De Carlo. I disclose this, because I want to emphasize how personally transformative Mar’s coaching was for me. The simple idea of scheduling your goals into your week changed EVERYTHING for me. Your advice about constructing the perfect week — about thinking carefully about how you want your life to be, has contributed greatly to feeling more clear, more empowered, more on-the-right-path.  You’ve covered so much that it will continue to be a treasure trove for a long time to come.”

~ Kate Ditzler, Birth Professional

Eleni

“Mar, I would like to thank you from my heart!

We are at the end of our Maternity & Child Sleep Course and I have mixed feelings. I am proud for myself for achieving one more step at my journey but I will really miss your voice and your empowering statements. You have no idea how much you transformed my life only through recordings! I have learned so valuable things except sleep. Congratulations for the program!”

~Eleni Kantza

Dr. Tomomi Urabe

“As a result of studying in the IPHI Maternity & Child Sleep Japanese Certificationcourse, both my children became self-sufficient without crying at the age of 2 years and 8 months.
As a doctor, I came to pay attention to sleep in my medical treatment. I have become able to give simple advice in medical treatment for things such as getting up early in the morning and sleeping only with breasts. My parents were also pleased that my child, who was said to have a developmental disability, had no symptoms due to improved sleep. It was very helpful to be able to study about maternity and child sleep.”

~Dr. Tomomi Urabe

Mariah

“Mar De Carlo inspired me to create my business from a deeply open heart space. It was life changing to uncover the non-truths that were holding me back. In a few short weeks I resumed my yoga practice, saw a professional planner, and got ever so closer to launching my website. Focusing on play, it was truly fun to do my work. Your business course is truly amazing Mar!”

 

~ Mariah Mailman, Birth Professional

Dr. Ahmet

I am a Pediatrician. I met IPHI Tukish Instructir, Güliz Gülsever Özsaruhan in an effort to help my little patients who have sleep problems without giving them any medication. I receive training from her about 1 year. I’m incredibly glad to know her. She seems in an unreachable position, even for me, because I’m perfectionist person and always in the effort to be best in my field. She is an excellent self-developed person.
After I complete my education, I see the IPHI Maternity and Child Sleep Certificate as the most valuable Certificate after my University Diploma and Specialization Certificate. You’re doing a great job. One of the most valuable investments I have made to myself is to meet you and receive this training from you Güliz G. Özsaruhan
Dr. Ahmet Özcan, Pediatrician

Carmen

“My work with Mar De Carlo was meaningful and profound. Mar helped me embed my education consulting business into a nation-wide context. Some of the greatest bonus gifts from Mar have been her unshakeable belief in my work, her open communication, and her willingness to spread the word about my work in her own network. Thank you so much Mar!”

~ Carmen Gamper, Founder of New Learning Culture

Isabelle

“Mar De Carlo is both a very professional person and a great mentor. She inspires all people around her. She is naturally a great coach not only for business but also for more personal things. Thanks to her, you can feel the confidence you need to become successful. She is very rigorous and does all things with the highest professionalism. She has a passion for empowering people to become what they are. This has just no price! I have rarely met someone like Mar in my life.”
