What Makes a Certified Baby Planner Valuable?

If you are interested in starting a baby planning business, becoming a baby planner, or receiving support for your established baby planning business consider becoming certified:

Certified Baby Planners are maternity consultants whose role extends beyond that of a typical baby planner/maternity concierge. By evaluating their clients specific needs, introducing their clients to a variety of options on pre-conception, pregnancy, post-partum and parenting topics, and providing them with the appropriate information, education and resources, certified baby planners empower their clients to make the best decisions for their growing family.

Certified baby planners take their careers to the next level by completing an accredited and reputable educational program through the IABPP via the International Maternity Institute that equips them to launch, operate, and manage their own baby planning business. Earning a certification blended with personal experience is a priceless asset baby planners can use to build their credibility and stand out in the baby planning market. Many IABPP students begin working with paid clients even before graduating.

Steps to becoming a Certified Baby Planner involve:

  • Research
  • Education
  • Support
  • Course attendance
  • Completion of course assignments and a final exam
  • Preparation
  • Time Management
  • Practicum Hours

If you currently work with parents as a maternity professional such as a doula, lactation consultant, coach, sleep consultant, nurse, or nanny, becoming a certified baby planner will allow you to expand your service offerings.

A certified baby planner does not diagnose, treat, examine or medically advise their clients. Unless a baby planner has additional training or a specialized certification or license in a specific area of practice, a certified baby planner does not prescribe or attempt to perform additional services that require advanced training. While some certified baby planners may have the additional training, certification or licensing needed to offer services like designing exercise programs and plans, recommending diets or nutritional programs, baby proofing, installing or inspecting car seats, providing therapy, giving pre- or postnatal massage or providing personal training, doula or midwifery services, these practices are outside of a certified baby planners scope of practice.
