This is a 8-week immersion into the ebbs and flows of new parenthood that centres the birthing parent. It is suited ideally to those currently in the thick of the 4th Trimester (up to 3 months postpartum). Having said this though, this course is also a great preparation for those currently pregnant in their 3rd trimester and who are wanting to prepare for what’s to come.
Although the focus is on the birthing parent/ mother, partners are welcome and in fact encouraged to join in Week 6 where we talk about the changing dynamics of relationships. It is important for partners to understand what it is that the birthing parent goes through and how best to support them during this transitional time.
This course delves deep into the common physical, emotional, social and psychological changes a new baby brings. It’s packed with info on how a birthing parent can support themselves as well as how their partners can support them, how they can set up their support structure and galvanize their community.
It will be divided into 8 modules over 8 weeks where each session will comprise of a learning/ coaching session exploring various topics and subjects. At the end of each session we have a group discussion with the opportunity to share and ask questions.
Week 6’s session will be on the weekend of 26 October to accommodate partners who may be working during the normal group times. Week 8 will be a recap and group chat.
A whats app support group for the duration of the course. Daily check ins and weekly journal prompts.
