At the perinatal space I understand that much of an expectant parents focus is on preparing for birth- mentally, physically and emotionally, this is very normal and encouraged. This said, pregnancy is also the ideal time for expectant parents to spend some time planning and preparing for what they would like their postpartum experience to be like. After all, it is said that the birth of a mother is more intense than child birth and many new parents can feel overwhelmed by the experience.
I also understand that each and every expectant parent is unique and will have their own wants and needs when it comes to preparing for parenthood. With this in mind, the ‘EmPowered Postnatal Parenting’ sessions are designed to provide parents with information and resources relevant to all expectant mums and dads (not just first time ones) delivered in a short amount of time. You may find that what you gain from these sessions is enough, you may chose to do your own further research and planning or you may chose to engage our counselling support either before or after your baby arrives.
