Parenthood Program

Becoming Us: After Baby

“No-one told me parenting was this hard”

When you understand why, and are armed with effective resources and support you can lighten the load.

You can go from feeling overwhelmedlost and disconnected from your partner to supporting each other, feeling more connected and re-establishing your sense of personal identity.

  • Are you finding it hard to communicate your needs with your partner? You end up getting frustrated that they “aren’t listening” or “don’t understand”.

  • Are you so busy with caring for your baby you can’t find the time to spend with your partner? You miss them and long for that pre-baby connection?

  • Are you not feeling valued, respected and appreciated by your partner for all of the work that you are doing for your family?

These are all common experiences of parenthood and one of the many transitions that you and your relationship goes through when you have a baby. Parenthood can often send partners in different directions but with the right support you can overcome your differences, better adjust to the changes and improve your well-being so that you can parent together to raise your baby, and yourselves!

After completing our Parenthood program you will be enlightened with:

  • Realistic expectations of life as a parent

  • Understanding the normal changes and challenges experienced by most couples

  • Know how to support your health and well-being during parenthood

  • An understanding of you and your partners roles and needs

  • Awareness of the mental and emotional shifts that are likely to occur as individuals and as a couple

  • Skills for couple connection and reconnection

  • Confidence knowing how to anticipate and manage challenges, perinatal mood disorders and when to reach out for professional help.

How can our Becoming Us course help you

Relationship Connection

Take you both from feeling disconnected, leading separate lives and frustrated about arguing without a resolution.

To having realistic shared goals to prioritise your relationship and each other. And the skills to derail the negative conflict cycle leading to feeling more connection and content in your relationship.  

Emotions of Parenthood

Free you from the rollercoaster of emotional polarity (love, joy, anger & resentment – all in one day), emotional outbursts and sensitivity.

To being aware that your emotions are signals for your unmet needs, embracing the whole array of emotions in parenthood and no longer fearing your emotional responses.

Your Personal Journey

From feeling lost, overwhelmed, unsure of yourself and your identity.

To releasing the heaviness of parenthood through personal clarity, embracing your identity changes and transforming into your new parent self.

Parenting Collaboratively

Take you from being in competition with your partner, feeling resentful of the impact of parenthood on their life and feeling unsupported.

To sharing the load of raising your family, respecting and appreciating each other.
