Building a Nest - Becoming a Family - Balance After Baby 

A Special Series for New & Expecting Parents
Preparing for the Transition to Parenthood
"Becoming Us"

This unique series is designed for private couples and small groups (4-6 couples).
Classes may be hosted at a private home or public venue. Ideal locations may include a yoga studio, library or wellness center.

  • There are resources and support services for pregnancy and birth, but there's a gap in preparing couples for the transition to parenthood... and beyond.   

  • With high rates of mental and emotional disorders in new mothers and fathers, relationship distress and breakdown of families, we must be more proactive!

  • Although having a baby can be filled with abundant joys, the truth is that parenthood brings a great deal of change, uncertainty and some unexpected challenges for parents.

  • The first few years of family life can be quite confusing, chaotic and overwhelming.

  • Professional support will help to increase your confidence, awareness and understanding of the natural evolution that occurs in all relationships, as your time, energy and priorities shift.

  • Gain tools in positive communication, conflict resolution and coping with mixed emotions.

  • Fees vary. Send email to request more information and scheduling options.
