For Expecting Parents in ANY Trimester - Including the "Fourth Trimester" or first three months after birth
"A workshop to prepare for birth and beyond"
The childbearing year brings many changes and challenges to individuals and couples as they prepare their homes and hearts for a new baby. And everyone brings their own personalities and perceptions along with them on their parenting journey right from the start. We are influenced by our upbringings, our families, our cultures, personal biases, current societal trends and more. All of this will impact what we expect of ourselves and our partners (and even our babies) as we step into our new roles as parents. It can be a challenge to put it all together as we navigate these new waters, so here is a place to start to make sense of it all.
Join postpartum doula, Sara Deacon with Heart Full Beginnings, for an informational workshop to explore these expectations, hopes and fears with others in a safe and supportive circle. We will share and encourage one another as we briefly move through a range of topics including birth, postpartum, relationships and personal identity and lay the groundwork for meeting your greatest expectations and embracing the reality that may not always line up exactly with your dreams. Since there is a lot of ground to cover in a relatively short time, you will be provided with a list of local resources and worksheets to take with you as you plan for your birth and line up your essential postpartum and parenting support.
