No matter how much you prepare, the first few weeks are exhausting and terrifying for every new parent, but I am dedicated to changing the narrative that parenthood, and motherhood in particular, requires sacrificing your sleep and your sanity. This plan will help you to maintain both of those things as much as possible while you adjust to your new life with baby!
*This guide is most helpful if read prior to bringing your baby home, but newly postpartum parents will still find the information and resources useful in supporting their initial adjustment and improving their newborn's sleep!
"There is so much emphasis on prepping for having the baby that even thinking of postpartum goes out the window. This workbook helped me know about important aspects of the fourth trimester I probably wouldn’t have thought of. I now feel really prepared for all the conversations that need to happen with my partner before the baby arrives, and I know that going through these prompts will really help prevent miscommunications and conflict down the line. As someone who really values their mental health, it was so validating to have a guide that focuses on planning for my needs in addition to the baby's. Overall, I feel so much more confident and know this workbook is setting my partner and I up for success!"
