Can I share my story with you?
Hi, I’m Elly Taylor and I'm called the Parenthood Tour Guide because I've taken this trip so many times I know the track. I know the highs and lows and have worked with hundreds of parents on how to manage it, and how to manage it in ways that create the best start for their family.
My passion is preparing parents in and setting them up with the needed supplies for their own adventure, so they have the best possible chance to create the family they dream about.
Because people don't generally tell you this, but the truth is parenthood is like a mountain-filled journey into the unknown.
Becoming parents, for most couples, is likely to...
Change your life.
Change your partner's life.
Change you and the couple you once were.
The secret to creating the family of your dreams is knowing ways to work with the changes, not against them. That's just exhausting! And confusing and disheartening. I know because That's how it was for us in the beginning.
And then I discovered:
The changes of parenthood are normal and common for most couples, yet most parents aren't aware of them.
When you know what the normal and common changes are likely to be, you can prepare for them.
When you're prepared for the changes, you can embrace them together.
You can love, learn and grow into your new version of "us". Becoming Us is what Parenthood is all about.
