Event description
Let’s talk about sex & baby. Let’s talk about a new reality. Let’s talk about all the challenges & solutions that can be.

About this Event

We welcome a new baby into our lives with excitement. We've looked forward to loving them and becoming a family. And yet, it is essentially a guarantee that entering the postpartum period and becoming parents will, at least at times, be a significant source of stress and strain on your partnership. There are many causes for the stress that grows between parenting partners. Although they are predictable, and perhaps even inevitable, we receive little warning and even less help in handling these stresses.

As postpartum professionals and parents ourselves, we are excited to offer this unique workshop to expecting couples. We are three postpartum professionals passionate about helping families to thrive:

- Aileen Kennedy - Psychologist, Mindfulness birthing & parenting coach, Doula, Massage therapist, Mother [https://www.facebook.com/Aileenkennedy.amsterdam/]

- Ola Wysocka - Psychologist, Gentle Sleep Coach, Mother [https://www.facebook.com/tinysleepyhead/]

- Zyanya Breuer - Babywearing Educator & Consultant, Mother [https://www.facebook.com/adapting.to.love]

Our aim is to help you to open a constructive and continuing dialogue with your partner about your new journey together as parents. We will together discuss realities, expectations, and many tools and resources to help support you in the first year postpartum. The workshop will be interactive, with us leading exercises and conversations between couples. And it will be fun!

We expect all couples to register as a couple, with both partners attending. We will focus heavily on just how instrumental and involved dad (and all non-birthing partners) will be.

Together, we will explore expectations and realities around sleep, feeding, babywearing, postpartum recovery, sex, stress, communication, and conflict management. We will practice and send you home with important mindfulness practices and communication exercises. Our goal is to provide you with a toolbox of resources and knowledge that will leave you feeling confident and ready to enter parenthood TOGETHER as a team.

Advanced registration is required as space is limited. Couples must register together. For registration, before 12 September the tuition is €80/couple. Registration from 12 September on is €95/couple. Healthy snacks and tea included.

Reserve your spot here and we will message you to complete your registration and email you an invoice. Registration is not complete until your tuition has been paid. 75% of tuition is refundable until 1 October. Or email us at adapt2love@gmail.com with any questions!
