Is your family growing? Would you like some dedicated time to learn and think about your postpartum period? Join us for this 2-hour class for expectant parents (2nd and 3rd trimester). All expectant parents are welcome: moms, birthing people, non-gestational parents, partners, couples, and single parents. If you are expecting a baby soon, we welcome you to join us. We will focus on the parents’ emotional wellbeing during the postpartum period. The class will include education, discussion, review of a postpartum plan, and resources. The main topics covered will be: postpartum physical recovery, partner support, self-care, support networks, lactation and emotional wellbeing, and perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. We hope that you will finish the class feeling more confident and knowledgeable about your postpartum experience.
This class is meant as a one-time session, so please only register once. This is a free resource, so we do appreciate it if you cancel your registration at least 24 hours in advance if you cannot attend the class. Then another participant, on the waitlist, may attend. Thank you! We are so glad you are planning for your postpartum period. You are not alone, and we are here to help.
Please scroll down to view a PDF of the Postpartum Plan. Even if you cannot make it to our class, we encourage you to still use the plan. If you are attending the class, please have your plan ready to fill out, as we will spend some time filling in a few portions during our class and answering your questions when you are unsure of what to include.
