IPHI and IABPP founder, CEO, and president Mar De Carlo, authored the first book on the baby planning industry entitled “The Baby Planner: A Guide to Becoming a Baby Planner and Starting Your Own Business.” In her book, for the first time ever, the role of a baby planner and a baby planner’s scope of practice was definitively defined. The popularity of her book resulted in a second edition entitled “The Baby Planner Profession: What You Need To Know! The Ultimate Guide and Resource For Baby Planner Professionals” that is now available in paperback.
Mar became the first in the child sleep consultant industry to develop and launch my Holistic Adult and Child Sleep Certification program in 2012 that trains professionals to begin supporting families with sleep education during pregnancy. Her program and approach have been well-received in 46 countries and are currently represented in 10 languages.
