Bring your questions, hopes, fears, and goals- and baby is welcome too! 

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.

An essential class for today’s growing families. Designed for you to attend before OR after baby arrives-- a safe, supportive space to talk about the challenges and realistic expectations... 

 

Ideal for: expecting couples in any trimester (1st, 2nd, or 3rd baby), individuals who have dealt with depression & anxiety who are now considering having a child, postpartum parents with babies up to a year old.

 

 

In this 90 minute workshop, we discuss:

 

-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!)

-coping with many uncontrollable factors as you're welcoming a baby during "COVID times"

-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

-when to seek help

-Realistic expectations for your family during the postpartum period

-Things you can do now to take care of your mental health and the mental health of your partner and baby

-Connect with other new parents in a supportive & non-judgmental environment
