The Taming Your Triggers course is a 10-week workshop for parents who have big reactions to their child’s (mis)behavior, and who want to change their interactions with their child. Instead of focusing on the child’s behavior, the workshop helps parents to understand the true sources of their triggered feelings (which often lie in the trauma they’ve experienced as children), begin to heal themselves, and learn more effective ways to interact with their children in difficult moments.
The Right from the Start course walks you through everything you need to navigate the first year of your baby’s life. It covers challenges with sleep, attachment, feeding, siblings, your own sense of self as a person – and so much more! You can click here to grab the free roadmap that walks you through the entire framework of this course. If you decide you need more support, take advantage of 15% off the Right from the Start course with the code PREGNANCYPODCAST.
