Preparing for Motherhood
What No One Tells You
Pregnant for the first time? How many times have you heard “I wish I had known…” from a new mom? That’s because there are so many experiences women face during pregnancy and delivery that just aren’t talked about. Some are exciting. Some are scary. All need to be discussed!
You’ve probably also heard about postpartum anxiety and depression, but did you know that studies have shown your risk to be LOWERED when you prepare AHEAD of your delivery with a licensed professional?
Main Line Family Education is the *only* location in our area currently offering RESILIENCY TRAINING to DECREASE and PREVENT emotional challenges that many new parents face BEFORE delivery.
