“Village Prep” Classes and Coaching Sessions
Family and community are everything when it comes to supporting the newborn parents. “Village Prep” teaches the extended family the most optimal ways in which it can come together to love and care for the new mom and dad. We tackle issues such as judgement of parenting style, which old wives tales are based in truth and those that are not, how to properly communicate needs, how to be watchful for symptoms and signs of postpartum mood disorders and the best ways to act if they are spotted and so much more! This class is designed for the ENTIRE Village and parents can make requests, prior to our meeting to talk about specific areas.
“Doula the Daddy” Classes & Personal Sessions
Monique is passionate about Fathers being held in high regard in their families, even if they are no longer romantically tied to the mother. In these sessions, Monique teaches Dads how to (gracefully) navigate the extended family, detect possible Postpartum Depression, how to garner support for himself and how to best support his partner and bond with his baby.
“No Drama Baby Mama” Classes & Personal Sessions
Parenting a child when you are no longer romantically tied to their father can be challenging, to say the least. Monique supports and educates women on how to navigate and normalize the co-parenting relationship by dealing with the very real emotional roller-coaster that some women experience and giving tips on how to change the energy of the “Baby Mama/Baby Daddy” relationship WITHOUT trying to change the other person.
