Newborn Sleep 101
The Newborn Sleep 101 Workshop designed for expecting parents prepare them lovingly and holistically for the new change in sleep that their family will experience. There is currently a huge gap in traditional antenatal education as families need to be prepared and empowered to adapt better after birth.
It is important to have realistic expectations and to understand the needs of a newborn baby and that each member of the family are indeed entitled to rest to replenish but at the same time that there are many healthy sleep habits, that can be implemented right from the start.
It's also important to understand, that sleep doesn't have to come at a price - normally, the lack of emotional closeness, bonding and attachment, indeed - you can have both!
Be empowered in this workshop with the skills you need to thrive as a new parent!
This workshop will include the following topics:
Expectations and myths
Summary of Healthy Sleep Foundations (incl Sleep Environment, Emotional Wellbeing and much more) (refer here for a comprehensive workshop on foundations)
