Preparing Yourselves for Parenthood

Welcoming your baby brings much joy, love and excitement. Your transitions into parenthood also brings considerable change for both you and your partner.

Our unique antenatal workshop focuses on preparing BOTH parents for the physical, psychological, relationship, social, emotional and financial changes and challenges of parenthood. Enlightening you for the most challenging and rewarding time of your life.

  • Would you like to start your parenthood journey feeling connected with your partner, having a plan for how you can both support each other?

  • Do you have a clear postnatal plan for how best to rest, recover, bond as a family and receive the support that you need?

  • Would you like to alleviate some of the uncertainty and stress out of the early months with your baby?

I’m here to guide you through your parenthood adventure. To enlighten you with the awareness, knowledge and skills to grow together through the stages of parenthood.

After completing our Prenatal program you will be prepared for parenthood with:

  • What to expect of life with a baby

  • Awareness of the normal changes and challenges experienced by most new parents

  • A holistic plan for postnatal support, recovery and well-being

  • Understanding your individual and relationship strengths to help you cope during parenthood

  • An understanding of you and your partners roles and needs

  • Awareness of the mental and emotional shifts you are likely to experience for yourself and your relationship

  • 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.

Becoming a family is all about growing.

For your baby, their time in the womb is the most intensive period of growth.

For you and your partner, it is the months (and years) afterwards.
