Certificate in Pre-Conception and Pre-Natal Nutrition (CPN)

  • Course level: Intermediate


It is no secret that the health of a child is of utmost importance to any parents. Even more so when the baby is within the womb and depends on the mother’s health for its survival.

The correct environment for the baby’s growth needs to start being prepared even before the conception. It is imperative today for many couples to change and improve their lifestyles in order to be healthy successful parents. In this search they look for those who can help them, guide them and nurture their health to the optimum so their baby inherits the same. 

The job of a pre-natal nutritionist is to coach a couple before conception, throughout the pregnancy and post delivery during lactation. Most pregnancy nutritionists work with a couple for a long time alongside their doctors, and are responsible for guiding and mentoring the client to inculcate healthy eating patterns.
