Maternity Coach training with The Maternity Coach
Two-day virtual training course
About The Maternity Coach ‘Maternity Coach training’
Our unique virtual Maternity Coach training course, recognised for CPD hours with the Association for Coaching, develops your awareness and understanding of the transition to motherhood, or Matrescence, and how to support clients through their transition to and from maternity or parental leave. You will reflect on your own transition to parenthood, or that of close friends and relatives and what it takes to successfully transition to and from parental leave. We will look at the practice of maternity coaching, common issues brought to sessions, as well as how to set up your own practice. You will also have a chance to put the theory and our Parental Leave Coaching Toolkit into practice. At the end of the course you will have access to our Parental Leave Coaching Toolkit and the license to it with your own clients to support them to and from parental leave.
At the end of the training you will:
- understand the transition to motherhood
- understand what is covered by ‘maternity coaching’

“A brilliant brilliant course. Over the course, Frances imparted all of her learnings and wisdom to us so that we are well equipped when coaching our maternity clients. I personally left with even more passion to support women and with the tools, education and knowledge to best serve them."
"I would highly recommend this course to any coach who is looking to do a master class on the maternal transition. Although it was a ton of information, Frances presented the material in a way that was easy to understand. I liked that the first day was focused more on theory, while on the second day we were able to translate it into our coaching businesses. I left the course feeling much more confident than when I'd started. Frances is also a kind and gentle teacher, who is so knowledgable and helpful. You can tell that she is a passionate advocate for women as they transition into motherhood. Last but not least, the exercises are really helpful as well! ."
“It was a great experience and reignited my passion for this work. Thank you, Frances, for sharing your work with us. It's clear that you have put a lot of time and dedication into creating the maternity coaching approach and it's such a gift!"
“The course flew by, a great balance of theory and practical content. It was great to learn from Frances and the other attendees that shared a passion for supporting working mothers to thrive in their careers."
“I really enjoyed the conversations and the fact that we all had prior experience so was not a course for beginners. Really interesting and I believe it will improve my skills in the area of maternity coaching."
