HALF DAY PREGNANCY INTENSIVES
Filling In The Gaps Left By The
Hospital Pregnancy Prep Courses
Did you leave your hospital sponsored pregnancy prep course feeling like something was missing?
Know what to expect during labor and delivery, and how to swaddle and bathe a baby but wondering how to keep your relationship strong with your partner during this time of transition for your family?
Have you heard from friends and family that their relationship was rocky with their partner after having a baby? Or that depression and anxiety were an unexpected part of their postpartum experience?
YOUR CONCERN IS VALID.
According to research by the Gottman Institute,
Sixty-seven percent of couples became very unhappy
with each other during the first three years of their baby’s life.

SO MUCH PACKED INTO 3 HOURS!
ALL OF THIS FOR ONLY
So many pregnant women are anxious - second guessing their decision to have a child.
And wondering if they have made a mistake!
This anxiety is largely driven by the fear of what is coming next and feeling unprepared to become a parent.
The "Baby Blues" are well talked about. So much so that it over-normalizes postpartum depression to the point that new moms think depression and anxiety is "just how motherhood is supposed to be."
While postpartum depression and anxiety are very common and are the #1 complication of childbirth, it is not every mother's destiny to be anxious or depressed.
This half day intensive will help educate you on some of the ways postpartum depression and anxiety often creep in slowly and subtly. Knowing what to look for helps many get help and resources in place fast - minimizing the impact and leading to a quicker recovery.
It will also cover the basics of how to set your relationship with your partner up on a solid foundation to navigate the transition to parenthood as a cohesive, unified team with a clearer vision for your family.
What to Expect:
It is NOT:
Educational and empowering
Walk away with a better understanding of what postpartum anxiety or depression often looks like.
You will also receive a high level overview of ways to fine tune your communication strategies with your partner during this higher-stress time in your life. Because old ways of communicating that were once effective, might not be so effective anymore.
And what resources could help in certain situations (postpartum doula, night nurse/night doula, lactation consultation, sleep consultant, therapist, psychiatrist, support groups, physical therapy, etc).
Not a workshop for deciding if you want to continue this pregnancy or not.
Not a substitute for a clinical assessment or evaluation for any mental health condition.
