We tend to prepare for the birth of our babies by buying necessary items, packing a hospital bag and creating a birth plan, but we often overlook the importance, or lack an understanding, of emotionally preparing for the arrival of a newborn baby. This workshop will provide some tools and strategies for coping with the transition to parenthood as well as generating discussion on the topic so that everyone has a good foundation to build upon.
