A course for parents in the perinatal year

IN-PERSON and ONLINE courses

The Perinatal Year

Confidence. Connection. Courage

In this course you will gain confidence as you make decisions and choices from pregnancy to being a new mother. You will learn how to connect to your family, friends and those you choose to support your in your journey. You will find the courage to do what you need for yourself and your baby. 

This is a foundational prenatal to postpartum course for parents.  It is designed for pregnant women and I encourage them to work through the course with their partner or a support person. This series is ideal if you are looking for a more holistic approach to childbirth. You will learn basic life skills for supporting wellness throughout the perinatal year using a variety of modalities.

This course will help prepare you for the physical and emotional aspects of pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period using various philosophies and techniques.  This self-paced course can help  prepare for the birthing journey, find a roadmap and fill your toolbox with helpful resources.
 

This online course has 5 units with 4 classes in each unit. You will be able to choose to take the whole course, pick 3 or just do one unit at a time. This gives you flexibility to pick which stage of pregnancy or postpartum you would like to learn so it is most relevant. You also have the flexibility to finish each unit at your own pace.

Once signed up you will have access for 1 year.
