Postpartum Communication Class

for expecting & planning couples

Next class: 10/12 & 10/19 at 8 pm EST 

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. Also great  for couples in their first year postpartum!

 

In this 2 1/2 hour 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, new & considering parents in a supportive & non-judgmental environment
