Becoming new parents can be a challenge and it is essential to make sure that both parts of your team are on the same page before baby arrives. In this lesson, we will look at what to expect in the first two weeks after baby arrives, including what help mom may need and how her partner/support person can help her begin a successful breastfeeding relationship. We will also focus on how to establish yourselves as a parenting team, while also maintaining a healthy relationship together through open lines of communication. Finally, we will consider ways to create healthy boundaries with well-intentioned family and friends so that everyone feels loved, needed, and secure. Covered topics are:
- What to expect in the first two weeks of becoming parents
- The baby blues
- Establishing a strong breastfeeding relationship
- Maintaining a healthy relationship with your partner
- Building your parenting team
- Helping each other succeed in your new roles
- Communicating with grandparents, family, and friends
