Communication and Conflict - How Connection Supports Both
Communication is the lifeblood of relationships but much more challenging than most people realise, especially during the perinatal period. The closer the relationship, the more challenging effective communication can be. Things just seem to get in the way. Feelings are hard to talk about. Effective, meaningful communication is much more than just the exchange of information. What’s your intention? What is the impact of the words you choose? What do the other person’s words, intention and impact mean for you and your relationship with them? Communication is both an art and a science. It starts with connection. Connection facilitates communication: connection with yourself gives you the awareness, skills and confidence to say what you want to say, how you want to say it. Connection also helps you to deal with what your words evoke inside the person you’re talking with. In this presentation you’ll discover why connected communication is so important, the barriers to achieving it, and the benefits, for yourself and others, of communication as a pathway to strengthening and deepening relationships, creating stability through change, and finding meaning and direction in the sometimes overwhelming and confusing landscape of new parenthood.

Including Fathers and Partners to Support Perinatal Mental Health and Marriages
"The “transition” into parenthood is supposed to be a time of joy, love and wonder, and yet research paints a very different picture: currently 1 in 3 mothers and 1 in 5 fathers suffer from anxiety or depression during the perinatal period. You might also be shocked to know that 92% of couples report increased conflict and 67% a decline in relationship satisfaction in the first few years of family. And referring to parenthood as a “transition” is misleading – there are, in fact, multiple transitions for couples to navigate. Including fathers or partners in pregnancy, birth and the multiple transitions of early parenthood helps to reduce both mothers' and fathers' risks for anxiety, depression and relationship problems and supports both parents' mental, emotional and relationship health, so the whole family can thrive. In this presentation, practitioners will learn simple and easy ways to include fathers and partners, even if they’re not in the room, and discover how small things can make a big difference to a family’s future.

Becoming Parents: Preparing Parents for the Journey of a Lifetime
The “transition” into parenthood is culturally a time of great joy, excitement and celebration. But our “Bon Voyage” attitude to parenthood appears to be setting families up to fail. Research tells us new parents are struggling: currently 1 in 3 mothers and 1 in 5 fathers suffer from anxiety or depression during the perinatal period. Added to this, a whopping 92% of couples report increased conflict and 67% a decline in relationship satisfaction in the first few years of family. So, what’s going on here? Is there a better way? And what can perinatal professionals do about it? In this presentation, we’ll first bust some unhelpful myths of parenthood. Next, participants will learn that while parents may expect having a baby is the destination, it’s just the beginning. Parenthood is like travelling deeper and deeper into foreign territory: every new stage has it’s own surprises, joys, challenges and unexpected rewards. And the journey never ends. We’ll explore ways to prepare parents for the stages of early parenthood (even long after their baby has joined them) in ways that support the mental, emotional and relationship wellbeing of mothers, fathers and parents, so their whole family can thrive.
