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.

Why Attend?
 

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).

  • Group therapy.

  • 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.

Oops, I still have a few questions...

Q: Do I have to live in New Jersey?

A: NO! This is an educational workshop for expecting parents (expecting dads are welcome to join as well). While the facilitator lives in New Jersey, since this is not a psychotherapy group (it's educational), you can live anywhere with an internet connection! Wahoo!

Q: I have a child already and am expecting another. Should I still attend?

A: Yes! This workshop is for you too! Maybe you wonder now about your experience last time and want to be better prepared. Perhaps your relationship weathered the transition, but it was less then pretty. If you are searching for direction on how to have a different experience this time, this workshop is not to be missed. 

Q: I want to register, but might not be able to make it to the live session.

A: No problem! Life is hectic and plans change. Register anyway and if you are not able to attend, the recording will be made available for you to view at your leisure, on demand. And you will be able to have access to the facilitator for a follow up 30 minute consultation free of charge to answer any follow up questions you may have.
