“My journey at IMI began June 2012, after coming across Mary’s book- The Baby Planner Profession. I have a BA in Finance and have been working in the Banking industry for a little over 8 years. At that time of enrollment to IMI, I was approximately 7 months pregnant with my second son and decided then to begin a new career. I know, I know, I’m a dare devil, but I call it- my calling. Mainly because ever since I can remember, I always had that feeling that I was destined for something more.But couldn’t figure out what it was – until I gave birth!
Being a soon to be be graduate and being personally mentored by Mary, has been a joy and beyond. Through the Baby Planner Certification program, I have gained the knowledge and expertise to begin my own company. Wow- my OWN company!!!! I love that. Also, that I will be able to make my own schedule and watch my children grow up. Which can’t get any better than that! Well, I’m lying. Helping future parents become prepared for their own transition and journey into parenthood, and encouraging and building on their intuition is also a huge plus.
I currently live in Brooklyn, NY with my fantastic husband and 2 beautiful, full of life, boys.
Living in NYC-the place that never sleeps- is just that! Everyone is on work mode ALL THE TIME. They want what they want now, this second, and if they can’t get it that minute, it isn’t worth it and they go to the next topic. Well at least that was me.
This was my main problem- to learn to CHILL OUT!
Mary helped me by reassuring me that a successful business takes time. It’s not a one night wonder. Like Mary says, it’s your child that you gave birth to and you have to properly take the time to nurture it so it can grow.
Mary and her program has taught me just that. To relax ( especially since I was 7 months pregnant). That time isn’t going anywhere, and it’s ok if I can’t get something done this specific minute.
In addition, Mary personally has guided me with advice from my logo design, helping me find a lawyer and insurance company to protect me and my business, to just a simple Congratulations on your beautiful boy Carolina! By the way, Mary and I were a month a part from delivering our beautiful boys, which I thought was a great bonding experience for her and I.
In addition, not only does Mary ALWAYS respond to my many many emails I send her, that same day, she is always genuine, sincere, and always willing to help with any question I have.
So thank you Mary and thank you IMI for giving me the education, empowerment and most of all support and resources for opening my own Baby Planning business.

“I had been in the infant and maternity industry for years and knew that I wanted to become a Baby Planner. However, it wasn’t until I was introduced to Mary Oscategui and the International Maternity Institute that I felt comfortable moving forward with my goal. It was the credibility her courses provided to the role of Baby Planner and and the foundation business training reinforced that allowed my dream career to come to fruition. I currently have my certification in Baby Planning and Greenproofing and look forward to starting the Sleep Consultant course this Spring. I now have the most inspiring and fulfilling job I can imagine!”.

”I picked up the stress management coach from the maternity institute, for a very important reason: my sister (who has depression), and off course for my customers too. Additionally, I am taking the baby planner certification. The courses have shown great success, as I try to implement what I learn into my work, but the most importantly it has helped my sister to slowly walk out from her depression ………I strongly recommend the maternity stress management and baby planner course. The education has been ideal to build my business, as my business is about dealing with people’s health, stress, emotions, and confidence. I will continue to explore more with maternity institute to build up my brain with more knowledge. Thank you Mary! Thank you Maternity institute! God Bless!”

“I love being a baby planner !
Being a baby planner is helping moms and dads during conception, pregnancy and baby’s arrival by giving them customized information and support them to make the best decision for them. The IABPP Baby Planner 16 week program is the best way to learn all the answers to formulating a baby planner business and career. Since I’ve started my course, I’ve learned a lot about maternity, babies but also business; very useful business notions that guide you through to build your own baby planner company. We’ve been studying a variety maternity subjects that I am really happy to know better as a baby planner but as a mommy too. The classes are easy to attend on the Internet and well organized. You can also share ideas and tips with others baby planners-to-be. Homeworks are useful and helpful. Ms Oscategui is really easy to reach, flexible and very professional. She really knows her stuff.
I can’t wait to begin my Green Proofer course. Baby Planner It’s a good certified profession that can help you become the mompreneur you’ve always dreamed of. Vamos Mamas !”

“Mary has been the best connection I made during the year 2011 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.”
