Make Money + Impact as a Women's Health Practitioner
[W]e need more effort to promote basic human values -- human compassion, human affection.
And in that respect, females have more sensitivity for others' pain and suffering.
~ The Dalai Lama
How can we create a paradigm shift in the world? I believe it will come only through reclaiming our bodies, our labor, and our relationships with other women. The programs I recommend below have created a ripple effect not just in the lives of the people who have graduated from the programs, but in the way we come to understand and think about health. Twenty years ago, few people knew what a health coach was, let alone had one. Most people think that the postpartum period is the first six weeks after giving birth, when you go to the doctor and they clear you for getting back to work and your life.
Today, more and more doctors are bringing in health coaches to support their patients, and traditional roles such as nurses and dietitians now adding health coach credentials to their expertise. With more and more attention being giving to maternal health outcomes, we're seeing a rise in paraprofessional support throughout pregnancy and pospartum, most noticeably via doulas and perinatal and postpartum mental health professionals.
If you're passionate about changing lives through healthy lifestyle practices and you want to focus on women, I invite you to check out these online training programs.
I attended IIN in 2004. Back then, I was suffering from chronic sinusitis, fatigue, irregular menstrual cycles, and weight gain from living off bagels and pizza while in college.
IIN gave me the foundation I needed to heal my symptoms and release the excess weight without dieting and deprivation.
I used the health coach training I received to grow two niches, including helping junk food vegetarians eat more whole plant foods and running community food education and agritourism programs.
I am now in my third niche, supporting women over 35 with PCOS, pregnancy, and postpartum.
While we've heard of menstrual cycles and sometimes even get them, and maybe we've had a baby or more, most women have NO IDEA how periods work and what is going on in their bodies every month.
Women are living with PMS, period pain, and heavy flows thinking it's normal (it isn't!), as well as fibroids, PCOS, endometriosis, infertility, and a host of other reproductive health issues keeping them from living full and engaged lives.
It doesn't have to be this way.
As an Integrative Women's Health Coach, you can show women how to make the food, lifestyle, and environmental changes necessary to reverse their symptoms, avoid major medical interventions when possible, increase their fertlity and libido, and live their healthiest and happiest lives.
The first three months after giving birth is crucial to the health and recovery of the mother and lays the foundation of her bond and transition to motherhood.
It is essential that we provide mothers of newborns with comprehensive support and community to help them feel connected and nourished during this time.

Postpartum physiology undergirds INNATE’s entire training, offering essential understandings into the requirements necessary for healthy Mothers and families- and thus the requirements necessary in the creation of a thriving human culture.
