What to Expect After You’re Expecting Workshops
A HUGE congratulations on your pregnancy or your loved one’s pregnancy! It is such a very special and exciting time for the whole family! Do you know what to expect after you’re expecting?
I’ve found that there is literally truck loads of information on pregnancy and birth – don’t get me wrong this is vitally important. The day your baby is born is a milestone you’ll remember forever more. Becoming new parents is the beginning of a whole new world for your baby and for you as a parent. However, I believe that parents-to-be need real life practical tips to help ease them into life with a newborn and managing family dynamics that will inevitably change with a new addition to the family!
I feel very passionately about this topic. The birth of my first child Jacob changed my life forever. I am no longer the same person I was before children. The experience inspired me to create Bubbaroo and Australia’s first swaddle product. I have been in the baby industry for some 13+ years, I’ve met thousands of new parents and collaborated with many health care professionals during this time. I met Taryn from FitRight Physio and really admired Taryn’s passion for women’s health. It got us thinking about how we could get our message out there for expectant parents and also expectant grandparents to get them to start to think about what’s going to happen once baby has arrived.
This workshop will get you thinking about things you may not have considered or even known about! Giving you the confidence to know what to do and where to go to get the support you need.
The “What to Expect After You’re Expecting” Workshop was born to be intimate and interactive with NO preaching or judgment!
