Postpartum Communication Class

for expecting & prospective new parents

Next class: 2/21

10-1130 EST 

$79/couple

Bring your questions, hopes, fears, and goals.

Take care of your family's emotional & mental health proactively. Learn the things that so many parents wish they had known the first time around. There are strategies that make a difference, both short term and long term- that can help you have more realistic expectations and enjoy the journey more.

 

Ideal for: expecting couples in any trimester (1st, 2nd, or 3rd baby), individuals who have dealt with depression, childhood trauma & anxiety who are now considering having a child, and any couples who want to really get a preview of important factors to consider in their family planning.

 

In this 90 min discussion-based class, we address:

 

-coping with shifting roles when baby changes the pace of your life- including sleep deprivation and division of labor

-responding to your partner's needs when they're most vulnerable

-Building and utilizing your support system (we weren't meant to do this alone!)

-factors that make you more at risk for Postpartum Mood and Anxiety Disorders (PMADs) and trauma, and protective factors that can help you through the hard times

-Realistic expectations for your family during the postpartum period

-Connect with expecting & considering parents in a supportive & non-judgmental environment

As parents, we have the most important job in the world. For many of us, this can feel like a lot of pressure from the beginning. That's why my practice prioritizes helping families to get off to a strong start, with a special focus on new parents and their babies. I also help families with kids of all ages.

 

Services include:

-Couples counseling

-Postpartum planning

-Individual proactive support & treatment for depression, anxiety, complex trauma, attachment concerns, and other stressors that impact your ability to enjoy parenthood. 

-Hands-on parenting support with building your understanding of your child's needs including my direct observation. Building a strong attachment is essential but difficult sometimes for a host of reasons.

-Consultation to support sibling adjustments to new baby. Learning how to divide your attention and feel like you're "enough" is challenging.

-Learning mindfulness and guided meditation as tools to support your transition to the new "work-life balance" goal that is especially elusive for many of us parents.
