Help! I‘m a New Parent and Feel So Lost, with Claire Young (The Illawarra Early Parenting Centre)
Transitioning to parenthood can be complex, overwhelming and exhausting. Where do new parents go when they don’t know what they’re doing? (Truth - none of us really know what we're doing).
Some new parents turn to friends or family members, Dr Google or mothers group - to find their village. But what happens when the village is non-existent or you can’t hear through all the noise of too many villages?
The Illawarra Early Parenting Centre is the place to find your village and get support as you transition to parenthood. This conversation may help you or someone you love.
