Let’s imagine a world where families and parents are well resourced and not burnt out...
Let’s imagine a culture that encourages communities and neighborhoods to show up for new families and support them through early parenting..
Let’s create communities rooted in deep relationships so folks have a space to be witnessed and held during the early stages of parenthood.
Because parents and children are really what our communities are made of.
And the more we can show parents how valuable they are, the stronger our communities will become.
CSP offers courses, workshops, consulting services and a free network for parents and care providers. You can learn more on our courses page.
A strong sense of community is a powerful remedy for healing, bonding and belonging. Let's build it, together.
I believe that having community is an essential part of flourishing for new parents AND for those of us who care for new parents.
The community supported postpartum facilitator course and curriculum is the fruit of my experience and education as a doula, early childhood educator and parent.
I believe that a strong network of support for new parents can fortify the entire community. For 7 years I have been sharing all the tools to make it easy for you to create parent-baby classes in your own neighborhood.
I help postpartum professionals, community caregivers and folks who care about new parents create multi-generational supportive gatherings for parents and babies in the postpartum year without re-inventing the wheel.
