Can you and I make a difference together?
I'm passionate about raising awareness of the ways couples can prepare for, and be supported through, early parenthood and the difference this can make for their whole family. If you think this could benefit parents in your community or organisation, I'd love to hear from you. Please connect with me below.
Research tells us parents who are prepared for parenthood:
- Have a lower risk for relationship problems in the perinatal period.
- Have a lower risk for experiencing Birth Trauma.
- Have a lower risk for Perinatal Mood Disorders including anxiety and depression.
And are MORE likely to actually be able to create the family of their dreams.
Parenthood is an adventure. Let's help parents prepare for it!
