Description

A day-long workshop for pregnant women/partners and new parents

When couples are expecting a baby the antenatal emphasis is preparation for birth, with little attention paid to what happens after the baby is born and how to manage the transition to parenthood. This pre-parenting workshop will provide knowledge, planning, and tools to cope with stress during the transition to parenthood.

There will be morning talks with tips for parents on:

  • Normal challenges of parenthood and ways to overcome them
  • Overview of common obstetric problems
  • Bonding and Attachment, baby care and safety
  • Managing expectations about parenthood

and afternoon interactive experiential workshops including:

  • Mindfulness
  • Pregnancy, postnatal and baby yoga
  • Postnatal Supportive care
  • Fathers' needs for mental wellbeing
  • Positive ways to navigate the changes in the couple relationship
  • Looking after yourself (self-care)

After attending this pre-parenting workshop, couples can expect:

  • To understand the normal challenges of parenthood and the impact on the couple relationships after the baby is born.
  • To know what some of the unexpected common clinical scenarios in the postnatal period are and care of the newborn.
  • To be prepared for a positive journey through the transition to parenthood and improve their parenting experience.

We welcome pregnant couples and new parents with young babies. This is a family friendly event.
