Are you looking for your next professional challenge?
Parenthood is both the biggest challenge - and most rewarding adventure - parents will ever experience. And yet it’s nobody’s role in our world today to guide parents through that journey. This is resulting in high stress levels, new relationship issues and increased anxiety and depression in both mothers and fathers. We can do a LOT better than that. Parents need - and deserve - preparation and support for becoming “us”, so their whole family can thrive from the beginning. And it’s here for them.
Filling the Gaps and Meeting the Needs
Do you know, either personally or professionally, that expecting and new parents need more preparation and support?
Would you like to do more and be more for the parents in your care?
Do you wish you had the support, resources and tools to “be the change” for new parents, babies and families?
You’re not alone. And the good news is you can!
There are so many barriers to preparing parents well for parenthood - have you noticed them? There’s gaps in services, broken medical systems, a hyper-focus on birth and let’s just skip over everything else that comes afterwards. There’s not enough funding or time allocated for this vital information in prenatal classes.
This all means it’s nobody’s role in our world today to prepare parents for the biggest life change they’re ever likely to experience, both as individuals, and as a couple.
This also means that any professional who parents meet on their parenthood journey instantly becomes a Very Important Person in their world. You have the potential to make a huge, meaningful and lasting difference for parents. So none of these barriers have to stop parents getting the preparation and support they both need and deserve.
