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.

Let’s face it, new parents and expecting parents are swimming in narratives of never being good enough, never looking good enough, never doing enough and never knowing enough. When parents are isolated all of these narratives act as villains that prey upon them and impact mental health and add to the harmful conditioning of new parents feeling invisible and burned out.
It doesn’t have to be that way.
Most of us have internalized beliefs that simply don’t belong to us, but are the result of our upbringing, environment and marketing campaigns.
We can reclaim early parenting by identifying systems that are designed to condition us to be martyrs and perfectionists and pressure us to compare ourselves to curated images so that we buy into materialism and harmful beliefs for others' profit and benefit.
The truth is that parents don’t need fixing, they need support.
The Reclaim Early Parenting workshop will help you recognize the systemic pressures that keep parents under the control of capitalism. When we recognize these patterns, we can break them and do better for ourselves, our work, the families we serve, and our communities.
Our “name the villain framework” will give you a step-by-step process to see the narrative, understand what system is influencing us and how to interrupt it and do things our own way.

The Community Supported Postpartum model feels like a much needed balm for a culture that places undue value on individualism and consumerism that can leave new mothers feeling isolated and overwhelmed. Drawing on the wisdom of others in the community and creating a intergenerational group for parents and babies to gather, share, and create feels essential in creating true community. I have so appreciated this training and it's offerings. I am completely inspired to bring what I have learned here into my own community and now I feel confident that I have the tools to do so successfully!
This course is a thorough guide on how to host and facilitate a consistent gathering of mothers in one's own community - especially new mothers navigating their whole new lives. How to uplift and value motherhood, and open doors to the significant feeling and security of having a village to support one's mothering journey. Honestly, something that should be so natural and simple, yet, in our modern times, has become a highly-involved to-do to check off our long lists.
Kerry has created such a special curriculum for the Community Supported Postpartum course. It was so wonderful to delve into the "why" at the start and so motivating to reflect on the importance of this work and hear the perspectives of the other participants. It is obvious that a lot of thought, heart and hard work went into this course. You will finish with surprising new perspectives and shifts in your ways of thinking, as well as charged up and excited to bring this important work to your community!
The Community Supported Postpartum course is thorough. From it’s aesthetics to abstract thinking of heart, purpose and vision, to the nuts and bolts of “how to create a group,” no detail was spared. Kerry’s years of experience as a group facilitator along with her experience as a educator, postpartum doula as well as being a mama and foster parent herself, she brings knowledge and insight to one of the most challenging times, the postpartum year.
