What is the Life With Baby workbook?

I am a Life With Baby partner, and I am thrilled to be. As you may have seen, all life with baby sessions come with a workbook.  This workbook is used to customize your postpartum plan.  


The Life With Baby Workbook provides parents with information, practical tips and a planning template for self care, support and emotional wellness during the postpartum period. This workbook focuses on:


  • Everyday basics that are often overlooked during the postpartum period including self care, building a support network, sleep and nutrition.

  • A Partner Plan template to support emotional wellness for the mother's partner/support person.

  • Postpartum Mood and Anxiety Disorders (PMADs) including what they are, symptoms, who is at risk, action steps and how to find help.

  • Practical tools that help parents thrive during sleep deprived days and nights including tips for managing emotions, breathing exercises, journal prompts and affirmations.
