If you are expecting your first baby, then as a couple you are about to embark on a huge journey of change and working through the following 5 step programme will set you on the right path to success.
My work with parents is about providing you with insights that will allow you to get ahead of what you need to know, rather than having to ‘work in the dark’, 'make things up as you are going along' and 'hoping things will turn out ok'! If you would like to be working in a proactive way regarding your parenting and family life then I would like to welcome you to Intelligent Parenting®.
What you will learn in this programme is how to...
Intelligent Parenting® is about welcoming you to a new and unique 21st Century way of parenting, with an aim and intention of moving you towards parenting and family success from the very first day!
Intelligent Parenting® is not about teaching you how to be a parent, it's about inspiring and empowering you to be the best that you can be. It's about moving you beyond outdated myths and beliefs into a new way of parenting, with new skills, knowledge and understanding that is able to support you through the speed and pressure of life today, a pressure and stress that all parents are having to face and deal with.
My work with parents is about moving you away from the pressure of having to work in the dark, make things up as you go along and hoping things will turn out ok, by mapping out what you need to know - every step of the way.
'Bringing Your New Baby Home' is a 5 step process designed to guide and support you through these first crucial six weeks, which is information you need to know and understand ahead of time!
As you embark on this journey of change, from being a couple into becoming a family, it can be a very emotional time for everyone.
This is a bonus programme I am giving you with your purchase of 'Bringing Your New Baby Home - 5 Steps To Success' because it is designed to help you see, understand and master the emotions that can get in the way of your parenting success!
Bringing your new baby home can be a very emotional time for everyone. This free bonus programme is about helping you understand how to quickly master your emotions though this challenging time.
This programme contains vital information you need to be aware of and know as you embark on this new parenting journey together.
As new parents I want you to be clear, confident and aligned throughout the whole of your parenting journey and this will only be achieved by you being clear, confident and in control of where you are, every step of the way.
The first six weeks is a huge transition for you all and I want you to be entering into this feeling joyful and confident, and this will only be achieved by understanding what you need to know ahead of time!
STEP 1: BREASTFEEDING OR FORMULA?
The information I am going share here is a balanced view around this topic, so as a couple you can have a clear understanding of what lies ahead, so between you, you are able to discuss the clear choices and options you have regarding what will work best for you.
As your parenting coach and mentor, I will present the information to you and then together you can decide the best way forward for you individually, as a couple and baby too, and it is this same structure and process that exists throughout all of my parenting programmes.
Step 1. Breast Feeding or Formula?
In this first step the discussion and understanding is around becoming clear regarding feeding your baby and getting it right for you.
STEP 2: COMING TOGETHER AS A COUPLE
We need to visit this step to go through what I call a quick ‘Relationship Health Check’, because your relationship is something that can so easily be neglected during these first weeks and potentially beyond, so is a perfect place to connect with this now before your new baby arrives, so as a couple you are aware and prepared.
It is important to be aware of and looking at this now because when your new baby arrives it is natural to give priority to them rather than equally to you all. It is so easy to neglect yourself and/or your relationship at this time, when the truth is, it is your relationship with yourself and each other that sustains you and therefore needs to be protected and nurtured during this time so when your new baby arrives, you are continuing to grow individually and connecting as a couple too.
This second step ‘Coming Together as a Couple’ is where we work through the process of creating a lasting love, connection and communication between you all.
STEP 3: THE NEW ARRIVAL – FEEDING AND SLEEPING ROUTINES
By this point you have decided if you are going to breastfeed or bottle-feed and checked through the health of your relationship. Now it’s time to work through understanding a bit more about the arrival of your new baby.
I know it can be a daunting time trying to understand how to be a parent and how your mind can certainly go into overdrive with this. "We are about to have a baby and we have no idea about what needs to happen first"? "How do we do this, what if we get it wrong"? "We have no idea what it is we need to know and understand about being parents"?
In this unit of understanding these are the questions we will be starting to answer and most importantly to become aware of why feeding and sleeping routines are so important to get right from the very beginning! To help you see and understand this clearly I need to take you a little deeper into the psychology of this for each of you and the situation as a whole, so you are able to truly connect with this.
There are 5 elements of awareness we are going to work through here:
STEP 4: EVOLVING INTO BECOMING A FAMILY
At this point we need to look at the path you have taken to get to where you are today and the stages of your personal evolution in understanding the key components of the family unit itself and starting to move you towards a deeper understanding of parenting and family success!
STEP 5: WHAT NEXT – A CALENDAR VIEW
During this unit of study I would like you to print out a copy of your free download, ‘The First Six Weeks - A Calendar View’ so we are able to work through this together and also for you to have it to pin up somewhere in the home as a constant reminder and reassurance of where you are in the process if or when times get difficult.
Hi I’m Jacqueline Coe – Parenting Expert, Author, Speaker, Transformational Parenting Coach and Mentor.
Parenting skill is generational with about a 26-year turnaround. Go back a few generations and you are back in the Victorian age! Would trying to cope with less than suitable parenting skills, within the speed and pressure of life today, be relevant to your needs? With all the ready available bits of information out there, and you having to piece it all together yourself, be helpful to you when you are not even sure what you are looking for?
I hear newly expectant parents say...
"We are about to have a baby and we have no idea what we are doing"! "We are about to become parents and that feels like such a huge responsibility, when we haven't got a clue how to be parents"!
And more importantly, I hear seasoned parents who continue to say...
"It can be terrifying being a parent"! "Having to make things up as you go along, hoping everything will turn out ok"! "Sometimes it can feel like you are working in the dark and not really understanding what you are doing"! "It's just difficult to know if you are doing the right thing"!
I want to say to new and seasoned parents alike, ok, let's get rid of the terror, let's get rid of the confusion, let's banish the unknown and help you to see and understand some guidelines towards getting it right!
I believe it is time to introduce new and unique parenting skills, knowledge and understanding into the parenting world, so all the different areas of your life, career and family life are able to move forward together in harmony rather than through confusion, challenge or chaos.
I believe it's time to allow you to get your parenting skills, knowledge and understanding up to speed with the rest of your life. At Intelligent Parenting® we aim to support you with this and to show you how.
