Becoming a parent is one of the biggest changes one will go through in life. This lesson explores the importance of taking care of yourself and it outlines simple steps you can take to ensure your mental, physical, and emotional health.
We also explore how a new baby may change the relationship dynamic with your partner, and how to cope with these new changes in a loving and effective manner. In many families, grandparents will play a central role in your new baby’s life, even if their decades-old parenting style doesn’t match with how you plan to raise your baby. We will discuss this sometimes difficult dynamic and find ways to ensure a partnership with your baby’s grandparents based on mutual understanding and respect. Finally, the class will look at your new post-baby body, how to embrace it, and changes you can and should expect moving forward.
