Preparing For Your Baby’s Arrival

We’ve been with you every step of the way during your pregnancy, but it’s just as important to know what to expect after your baby is born. That’s why we offer a workshop every Monday at 5:00 p.m. to help you prepare for your baby’s arrival.

Topics covered include:

Hormonal and physical changes you can expect after giving birth
Psychosocial changes—no sleep, no alone time, lack of control, etc.
Postpartum mental health conditions—prevalence, what’s normal, what’s not
Factors that may predispose individuals to have a postpartum condition
Coping skills that work best with your personality type
when to ask for help
treatment options
Being on your own with your baby for the first few weeks and months is one of the most eye-opening, messy, absolutely beautiful things you’ll ever experience in your life. And, it can be scary, sad and overwhelming all at the same time. Learning to embrace your messy, wonderful new world order isn’t always easy. But, it’s so worth it.

Let us help you learn about complete postpartum health-mind and body. Just as we help you develop a birth plan, let us help you plan for weeks and months after the arrival of your newest family member.

This workshop is offered free of charge to all VWC moms-to-be and their partners. But, advanced registration is required. 804.288.4084.
