Learn to create a personal comprehensive postpartum wellness plan to optimize physical and emotional health while caring for your infant. The many physical, social and emotional adjustments common in the first year of parenthood can leave us feeling overwhelmed and isolated from our previous life and relationships. This class will provide a roadmap with practical strategies for getting more restorative rest, adding structure to your daily routine and prioritizing self-care needs as well as the needs of your relationship. An exercise assessing six different types of social support will be introduced, and community resources helpful in building your confidence and social network as parents will be provided. This class will clarify the differences between typical postpartum adjustment‚ “baby blues‚” and postpartum depression. Additionally, risk factors for postpartum depression and supportive actions to take if you are concerned for yourself or your partner will be discussed. All expectant and new parents are encouraged to attend. Babies 6 months and younger are also welcome if it helps facilitate parent attendance.
