The International Parenting and Health Institute (IPHI) – formally the International Maternity and Parenting Institute (IMPI) – is pleased to announce the launch of the all new, fully revised Pre & Post Natal Nutrition Coach Certification program.
All of our courses are taught online. All you need is Internet access to login and be part of each class.
Self-Directed: all sessions are pre-recorded and you are given access to the new modules as you complete each one. You will email your instructor, or attend a weekly/monthly conference-call with the instructor, to ask any questions you may have.
This program prepares maternity and parenting professionals to become Pre & Post Natal Nutrition Coaches with a holistic perspective that integrates traditional, evidence-based nutrition education with additional integrative modalities such as the bio-individuality of clients, nutrition for sleep and stress, healthy exercise/movement, and eco-friendly practices throughout the pre & post natal periods. Our focus is on a holistic approach to establishing healthy eating habits that begin during preconception and continue throughout pregnancy, postpartum and beyond. Our Pre & Post Natal Nutrition Coaches fill an important role in promoting healthy nutrition habits by educating, supporting and coaching families in response to their individual needs.
The IPHI Pre & Post Natal Nutrition Coach model utilizes a science-based approach that is also individualized and patient-centered in order to help arm our coaches with the skills, education and confidence needed in order to meaningfully connect with clients and by developing optimal full mind-body wellness. The IPHI does not believe in a “one size fits all” approach to providing nutrition education to our clients. Our emphasis is based on the idea of using ‘food as medicine’ and that each client has their own unique biochemical, genetic, and lifestyle individuality and that this factor should be at the foundation of creating any personalized coaching plan.
Optimal nutrition is at the root of building overall health as everything you eat affects the way the body functions and how it performs. What you eat affects how you sleep. What you eat affects your level of stress and emotional well-being. What you eat affects how you move through you day. And the examples go on and on from there. This is the reason behind our integrative approach. The health and nutrition industries are growing fast, and so is the need of passionate and dedicated nutrition coaches. The IPHI Pre & Post Natal Nutrition Coach certification program not only builds on the foundations of nutrition education basics, but also focuses on prevention and using whole, real foods for nutritional healing and lifelong health.
Our program is a combination of online sixteen self-directed study modules and optional online calls to support your journey. Calls are recorded so you may listen if you cannot attend. You will also have access to our private online Facebook group where you will get to interact with our graduates and members represented in countries throughout the world.
Our program has been designed for birth, postpartum and health professionals who desire to begin or expand their knowledge and career working with preconceiving, prenatal, and postpartum families to provide nutrition coaching, education, support and resources in order to specifically meet their nutrition goals. This is a wonderful addition for any maternity/parenting professional who is currently working with new and expecting moms and is a wonderful complimentary program for sleep consultants, lactation consultants/educators, doulas, baby planners, newborn care specialists, pre and post natal yoga instructors, health coaches, family coaches, parenting coaches, nutritionists and more.
