Surviving and Thriving as a New Parent

10/12/21

It goes without saying: becoming a new parent is a major life change. Both men and women are at risk of postpartum depression. One in 5 women and 1 in 10 men struggle with postpartum mood disorders. By building support networks, finding ways to communicate needs and expectations, practicing self-care, and setting boundaries, employees can survive and thrive as new parents. In this workshop, employees will create self-care plans to build resilience and strong foundations, learn to set boundaries for family and work obligations, and recognize signs of postpartum depression and how to get help.
