This series is open to: pregnant/expecting couples and new parents –
babies under one year old are welcome!
Research shows that when couples feel connected and on the same page, parenting is easier and families are happier. Staying connected as a couple is absolutely the best thing you can do for your kids. It’s also the best thing you can do for your own happiness and quality of life.
The How to Stay In Love While Parenting workshop series will help couples increase their levels of connection with each other and become more effective in their parenting. Workshops will include didactic sections based on relevant research, guided discussions, and exercises addressing key themes such as:
- Making time for intimacy
- Taking care of yourself
- Giving each other breaks
- Improving the way you fight
- Communicating appreciation
- Forgiving mistakes
- Dealing with the in-laws
- Creating the optimal work/family balance ______________________________________________________
Pregnancy Support Circle at Awaken with Kathy Woo
This ongoing group provides a space for pregnant women to connect with other pregnant women, share in a safe supportive environment, build community that carries on into postpartum/parenting, and learn tools for deeper internal support. This group makes time to talk about what’s really going on and to process the myriad of changes pregnancy brings.
