I've never worked with a coach. What is it like?Working with a coach provides you with a space to pause and really think about something. (This is something many of us struggle to do throughout our busy days!) Your coach will listen deeply and ask powerful questions. They can help you organize your thoughts, come up with a plan or find a solution to a particular challenge. Your coach can also help you to stay accountable to your goals and commitments. Together, you and your coach will set an intention for the session, talk through what's on your mind and come up with some next steps. A coach is a great person to have on your team- especially as you navigate parenthood!
May I bring my partner to my coaching session?Yes! It can be incredibly helpful for you and your partner to speak with a coach together and chat through your thoughts, plans and challenges as you prepare to grow your family and experience parenthood as partners. Please feel free to bring your partner to any of your coaching sessions.
May I give one of my coaching sessions to my partner?Yes! We would love to support your partner too. Please feel free to share any of your coaching sessions with them.
Will my coaching session(s) be confidential?Yes! Your coach will not share what you tell them with anyone.
What participants are saying:
"I loved the coaching relationship I built with my coach. She was caring, empathetic, and genuine. I knew she could relate to my situation since she is a Mom herself, and she helped alleviate a lot of the anxiety I had with pre and post motherhood by listening to me, and helping to talk through positive solutions and action plans together."
Pathways to Parenthood Participant
"This is an amazing program for any parent! While I utilized it as a first time mom and transitioning to be a first time working mom, I took my husband on the journey with me. Pathways provided resources and talking points for us to discuss as partners becoming parents and helped us to be set up for success when we moved through the different seasons of our lives."
