People say nothing can prepare parents
for parenthood, but that’s just not true!

We have a survival guide for couples - and training for professionals.

Parenthood is life-changing. For most couples, it's like an adventure into the unknown. And people say nothing can prepare parents for parenthood, right? But what if you could? Not only for the beginning, but for each and every stage afterwards?

Becoming Us Level I Training:
Become a Seed Planter

over 4 online sessions

What does the 'transition into parenthood' actually mean? Why do some parents find it more challenging than others? Is there a way to prepare expecting or new parents so this special time is easier and more enjoyable for all of them? You'll discover the answers to these questions and more.

Following Level I you'll be a Professional Seed Planter. You'll know which seeds to plant that support your clients to grow their love as they go - and have practical resources you can use from day one.

Becoming Us Level I is essential training for ANY professional who works with expecting or new parents. You can enrol
in this ground breaking on-line training at any time.


“Really interesting and all the tips and handouts are so useful for talking with clients.”
