“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”

“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


“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


“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


“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



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


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

“I took the IPHI Holistic Pregnancy and Infant Sleep Consultant Qualification Course and it prepared me during medical examinations to confidently support moms and outpatientswho are suffering from sleep. The course was also was helpful to prepare the sleeping environment for my own child. I have come to always keep in mind that (not only sleep), “there are different ways to support each child and family,” and “the happiness of parents affects the child

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

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


“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


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


“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!”
