We talk a lot on this show about pregnancy and birth (of course!) but we don’t talk as much about what happens after that. That’s where today’s guest, Lindsay C. M. Garrett, LCSW comes in. An expert in the field of adoption, parent preparation, and child welfare, she has spent ten years supporting parents at The Gladney Center for Adoption.

Her background may be in adoption but no matter how you choose to approach parenthood she’s got great practical advice that I know everyone can find useful. This episode can hopefully remind you that it’s ok to feel your feelings and reach out to your support system.

In this Episode, You’ll Learn About:

-How the challenges of adoption inspired Lindsay to focus her career on preparing parents to have children

-Why it’s important to explore your fears leading up to parenthood

-How establishing strong communication with your partner beforehand can help in coparenting later

-What some specific strategies are for building a sustainable support system

-What are some ideas for things you can ask for when you reach out for help

-What it means to define your family’s mission statement and values
