Early Parenthood: It can be harder than you thought, but better than you thought possible.

Expecting, or have a newborn?

Now is the time to create healthy habits from the start and prevent new parent burn-out before it weighs you down. Whether you are planning, expecting, or just became parents, the greatest gift you can give your baby is confident, relaxed parents.

Have a toddler 1 – 2 years old?

Toddlerhood is all about power and exploration, which is challenging for even the most patient parent. You need to adapt to your child’s budding independence, while making sure you’re taking good care of your own needs.

Have an infant up to 12 months?

Infancy is about constant, rapid change - for ourselves, or relationships, and our baby. You may be stressed about sleep, feeding, schedules or going back to work. Get help balancing the whole family’s needs and navigating the shifts as they come.

Have a Preschooler 3 – 5 years old?

Your child is much more complicated, engaging with the world in new ways, and may even have a sibling by now! As you child matures, power struggles become more challenging. You also have more freedom to put energy into yourself.

Jessica handles our concern and confusion with grace, humor and loads of realistic and do-able advice that feels comfortable to us.
