Dr. Thomason will be speaking at Hartford Hospital’s Blue Back Square location on November 5th at 7:00pm. The topic will be Increasing Joy: Planning for Life “After Baby”.  Call (860) 545-1888 for more information or to register.

The transformation from “couple” to “family” has often been anticipated and planned for some time, and yet new parents may be astounded by the intensity of these changes.

As mothers recover from the physical and emotional demands of giving birth and fathers attempt to both support their wives and be “Dad”, the demands of newborns can feel overwhelming. If you are expecting to be new parents, support can help you manage the stressful challenges of a newborn so that you may cherish the joyful moments.

A “helpnet” of your circle of family and friends can be critical in providing this support. Dr. Sharon Thomason will speak about planning for help after baby comes home: the who, what, when, and where of assistance to ease this transformation. We will also discuss concrete considerations for nurturing your family: increasing your joy, decreasing your stress.
