A guidebook for your whole family…


Becoming a family is life-changing. Parents often feel like they’re going somewhere they want to go, but don’t know how to get there. Becoming Us breaks the Parenthood Adventure down into 8 steps that support your whole family.

The book covers the 'need to knows' for mothers, fathers and partners, starting with planning during pregnancy, so you can have the very best beginning for your new family. It helps you anticipate and work through the normal issues most new parents are faced with (like finances, housework, intimacy, dealing with in-laws, negotiating different parenting styles, balancing it all and more!), and how to steer around or navigate the most common challenges as your baby grows into a toddler and beyond, to support you and your partner with what you both need so your whole family can thrive.

Becoming Us shows you where the cross-roads are and which one to take. It points out the swamps to avoid and puts you on the easiest path across the mountains. You'll find ways you and your partner can travel together (even over the rocky bits!) so you'll grow stronger together than ever. 

Becoming Us is your map, compass and travel guide all in one.

I became aware that many of my feelings since the birth were common and a normal part of becoming a parent.
Reading this made me feel calmer, gentler and more accepting of myself and my husband. It helped me see what we each bring to parenting and how much our son needs both our approaches.
It’s like Elly was in the house with us. This book has been a roadmap for us getting back on track.
