"Dr. Jessica Drummond is one of the most amazing women and mentors I’ve had the pleasure to meet (virtually). I am blessed to be one of the first students to enroll for the Women’s Health Coach Certification Program. 

The Women's Health Coach Certification program literally changed my life, transforming my own health and the health of my complex clients beyond bounds. I have found immense value in all of the courses from The Integrative Women's Health Institute, both for myself personally and professionally, and for my clients. 

Going through The Women's Health Coach Certification program has also inspired me to start up my own online education and health coaching business – The Pelvic Expert. I’m so grateful to have the support of amazing therapists, coaches and healers like Dr. Jessica Drummond. Thank you, Jessica for being an amazing inspiration!"

"I’m seeing phenomenal results with my clients”

“The Women's Health Coach Certification Program is rocking my world. I have done a lot of training programs and this is hands down the best one I’ve ever participated in. 

In the relatively new field of health coaching, in which the research and facts are sometimes scarce, having access to this course that is so well-researched is so encouraging. Dr. Jessica Drummond has covered every aspect of integrative women’s hormonal health and backed it all up with thorough evidence-based research. 

It’s all very compelling! Each session has been interactive and engaging. Dr. Jessica Drummond is a masterful teacher and her passion for this work really shines through every step of the way. She has left no stone unturned and covers each topic comprehensively. 

There is so much material that I find myself going back through each of the webinars at least 2 or 3 times. Additionally, I’ve implemented a lot of what I’ve learned into my own practice and I’m seeing phenomenal results with my clients."

"I wish I had started with this program first."

“I cannot say enough good things about The Integrative Women's Health Institute and The Women's Health Coach Certification Program.  This training program is thorough, informative, evidence-based, practical, and changes the paradigm of caring for all people struggling with chronic pelvic pain. 

As a board-certified obstetrician and gynecologist who has been dissatisfied with the standard of care for chronic pelvic pain, and spent thousands of dollars attending numerous conferences on chronic pelvic pain, chronic pain processing, holistic medicine, and integrative medicine, I wish I had started with The Women's Health Coach Certification Program first.

I would have saved money and been very well prepared to treat this patient population in a more evidence-based way. For any medical doctors who may be hesitant, delay no longer; you will be more than satisfied! The Women's Health Coach Certification Program will change your practice and the way you view not only your chronic pelvic pain patients but all of your patients.”
