Whilst parenthood is typically celebrated as a time of joy and great anticipation, becoming a parent also means grappling with unexpected changes and challenges, resulting in high rates of anxiety, depression and/or relationship breakdown for one in three new families.
Much of this is preventable.
Becoming Us exists to prepare and support expecting and new parents to thrive. Becoming Us is a world-first Relationship Developmental approach to the transition into parenthood that supports the mental, emotional and relationship wellbeing of mothers, fathers, partners and families.
Our mission is to raise awareness of the importance of prenatal preparation for life with a baby and to equip parents and professionals with the skills to face the normal changes and challenges of parenthood hand in hand.
Over 150 birth, health, mental health and other helping professionals have undertaken our online professional development training and we currently have Becoming Us classes running in pats of Australia, North America and Europe and expanding into the UK and Canada in 2019.
