Ease the transition into parenting by learning what to expect and how to prepare for the first few months of being new parents. This interactive and fun class brings together evidence and experience to provide a well rounded and complete education for parents-to-be. The workshop begins with a discussion around body changes, postpartum healing and tips on alleviating the physical changes of the first month postpartum. After this, we engage in a conversation around postpartum mood, relationships and support systems. You will leave this workshop feeling more prepared, confident and ready to start your parenting journey.
Throughout this workshop we will discuss:
