Mamahood 3-week package

Attachment based solutions to parents’ most common challenges

Join Heather on Saturday mornings beginning February 9th at 10am for this three week parenting series.

Learn about, discuss, and problem solve:

  • Infant Sleep (February 9th, 10-11:30am)

  • Infant and Child Development (February 16th, 10:30-12pm)

  • Feeding & Mealtimes (February 23rd, 10:30-12pm)

Heather draws on her extensive experience with infants and children from birth to three at Peel Infant Development and at McMaster Children’s Hospital Neonatal Follow-up Clinic to provide evidence- and experience-based perspectives and strategies in this combined three-week Mamahood Series. Last offered on the web, this course includes a handout of key concepts and a list of relevant books, websites, and other resources. Participants will be able to attend live Q&A events online which cover each of these topics. These Q&A events have been an opportunity for workshop participants to clarify things and to ask questions about challenges that have come up since the workshop.

The registration for these 90 minute workshops separately is $50 each. Sign up for all three in the Mamahood Series by January for $110.

Mamahood On the Web Week 3 -Authentic Motherhood

INTRODUCTORY RATE!

Mamahood on the Web is being offered at $20 per one hour class, or $50 for all three in the series. If you do not require video recording, the fee is $15 per session or $35 for all three. Rates will go up in the winter.

Mamahood on the Web Week 3 will explore ways to identify and strengthen your parenting values, develop your instincts to make decision-making easier, and respecting your authentic mama heart. 


Parenthood has a way of turning priorities upside down.  It can feel pretty scary to realize that they way you intended to parent doesn't feel "right" anymore, or that the way you are parenting is harder than you expected.

In this session we will explore authentic parenting by:

  • Reflecting on what it means to mother

  • Discussing how to tap into our mothering instinct to guide us

  • Exploring strategies for reflecting on our parenting values and how they have changed

  • Sharing and connecting through story-telling, and reflective exercises

  • Talking about how to live authentically with our values despite the pressures from others and the pressure from ourselves

  • Exploring what self-care means and what it can look like for parents of young children

This session will have specific activities planned, but will also be flexible to respond to the needs and priorities of the group.  The concept of mothering is applicable to any nurturing caregiver (fathers, grandparents, and nannies) and I welcome anyone with the desire to explore their authentic nurturing role to join us.

INTRODUCTORY RATE!

WEEK ONE: INFANT DEVELOPMENT

There are average ages for milestones but there are no average babies.  Learn how to support the emotional and physical development of babies and young children through their natural strengths and temperament.

We will explore motor, language, cognitive, and emotional development through an environmental- and attachment-based lens so that you have a framework for how to support your infant or young child's development over the first three years.
