The Gather Presents…Finding Connection as New Parents


Expanding families is an everyday occurrence across the world. There are an estimated 385,000 babies born each day, world wide, meaning there are over 385,000 people going through huge emotional, physical, sexual and mental adjustments related to parenthood, every single day.


What is often left unsaid, is the impact this everyday occurrence has on relationships. How a shift in dynamic can leave two people in the same bed, under the same roof, feeling isolated from one another. 


So how do we stay engaged and committed to communication? How do we rebuild the foundation that is the basis for your family, and create space for a deeper intimacy?


Deanne Oliver-Pickard, founder of the Gather & mother, will be joined by Calli Popham, mother of two and Yoga Teacher Trainer, and Sophie Whippy, Birth Doula, Sex Educator, Couples Facilitator and mother of two, to hold space and enquire into all this topic and more. 

With open and vulnerable conversation we open the door to connection and joy!
