Your Leave, Your Way
Small group coaching to help you plan the maternity leave experience you're dreaming of!
Time flies when you are preparing for baby!
And even faster when you are stressing over your maternity leave.
You deserve to spend your leave snuggling your baby and focusing on what matters most - your growing family.
You don’t want to spend it worrying (or even thinking) about work.
Meeting once a week over 4 weeks, your small coaching group will get:
- Expert advice and insight from new parent coaches & educators
- A safe and warm space to explore what becoming a new parent means to you
- Connections with other expectant parents sharing similar paths
- Confidence and clarity for the first days of parenthood (and beyond!)
- Skills to maximize the time you have at home with your new baby
Childbirth classes get you ready for birth.
Newborn care classes get you ready to take care of your baby.
But what's helping you plan for your maternity leave?
We know that thinking about your maternity leave and your return to work seems so far away! And we know your work is important to you. You've invested time and energy in getting your career to this point. By intentionally planning your leave your way, you can enjoy your time at home and have a smooth transition back to work.
Your Leave, Your Way is facilitated by Sarah Douglas and Amanda Hemm. We are working parent coaches, postpartum doulas, and new parent educators. We have worked with hundreds of families going through this transition. Let us be your guides.
