The First 6 Weeks: processing your birth and postpartum experience. There are a huge range of reactions one can experience as a new parent. Let's sit down and talk about what happened and how the first few weeks of being home with your baby are going.
Career & Identity: whether you're planning to stay home or go back to work, your vision for your life may have changed a little - or a lot. This session will focus on how your work-life worlds have shifted and how you are coping.
Relationships & Intimacy: romantic ties, family, and friendships old and new - as you lean on your support network, these connections are likely shifting. We'll talk about it. Sex and intimacy will also be discussed.
Self Care: changes to body and mind are entirely normal through pregnancy, childbirth, and beyond - but talking about them sadly isn't. As you physically and mentally adapt to the demands (and rewards) of parenthood, this session offers the opportunity to discuss the ways in which your body and mind have been affected by parenthood. We'll also talk about postpartum anxiety and depression.
