HI, I'M RUTH
I made this course because I wish this type of support and information was around when I was preggo. Yes, I did enjoy pregnancy, even giving birth, and 2 am snuggles during the fourth trimester. With that said I needed a place to process pregnancy and birth and birth education. Our society creates so much space for the joy of pregnancy and parenting but not much for the raw parts. I made this course so parents can talk about both the raw and joyful parts of parenting, have a community of people in the same boat.
These classes count as self-care and cover:
