Expanding Families Workshop


Expanding Families-Mama Wisdom for Welcoming a New Child and Strategies for Helping Older Children Cope


Parenting Guru and Mommy Gretchen Goddard teaches this fun, insightful and practical workshop.  She uses mindfulness and discussion to bring voice to the concerns and questions about welcoming a new child into your family. 

Some themes for discussion will be:
- How will the demands of mothering intensify while pregnant with a new child and how does self-care happen?

-How will adding a child affect your partnership and relationship with your older child or children? 
-How will I love a new child as much as I love my first? 
-What are some strategies and "wise woman" advice that can help you manage through these new transitions so needed in order to expand our family?
-How can I prepare my body and mind?
-How do I engage the support of my partner and others?

 Join Gretchen for an enlightening and empowering workshop!
