Many couples, when planning to get married, attend premarital counseling. Getting married is a life changing event!
Well, having a baby is also a life changing event! It is a "Right of Passage". In one of my Birthing From Within® classes, a father asked the question in a personal and profound way, “Do you charge extra for marriage counseling”.
I smiled as I commended him on his observation that preparing for parenthood requires similar preparation and possibly counseling to enhance the postpartum experience.
An important exercise to help you and your partner talk about expectations and goals for the postpartum period is to complete this Couples Expectations Plan.
