Birthsmarter New Dads Survival Group
June 1 - June 22, 8:30pm - 9:30pm (Virtual)
Weekly on Wednesdays
Birthsmarter New Dad's Survival Group is offered 👨🏽💻 Live-Online.
Adjusting to fatherhood is rarely straightforward, especially while trying to unlearn gender essentialism. When a baby is born, you're thrown into an incredibly high stakes job with huge demands on your time, emotional intelligence, and communication skills. You're asked to function, beyond your typical capacity, as a parent and a partner despite sincere lack of experience, interrupted sleep, and ever-changing benchmarks.
In this cohort based group, we invite New Dads of babies 2-16 weeks old to join us in four weekly meetings online and a private chat community between and beyond our meetings.
Each week we will have time for real time troubleshooting and community building. While the discussions will follow the needs and interest of each cohort we will always address to following topics:
+ The Daily Grind (sleep + eating for the whole family)
+ Infant Development (stages of development, play + bonding)
+ Relationships 102 (how to be a supportive partner and have a thriving relationship despite the demands of parenthood)
+ Taking care of yourself (self-care, emotional well-being, parenting sustainability)
This series is facilitated by Birthsmarter Founder, Ashley Brichter

In a world where it is difficult to keep sight of what is most important Birthsmarter aims to call our attention back to what is valuable. Do you notice that expectant parents spend more time choosing a stroller than they do a midwife or obstetrician? More time arranging their nursery than arranging comprehensive support for after the birth. As a business we have the power to convince you that pregnancy, birth, and the postnatal period are worth investing in. If we don’t, women and families suffer and you miss the opportunity to build an intentional foundation for your family; the foundation on which we’d like our society to rest.
Birthsmarter lives in the space where biology meets society, wisdom meets data, and empathy meets activism. We believe that transparency is the key to birth, babies, and business, that it is always worth investing in parents, and that together, we can change the world. Our unique birth and parenting classes offer expecting parents and their support team the information and practice that will enable them to think critically and improvise during high stakes moments. Our continuing education workshops empower health and wellness professionals to become trusted pillars of their perinatal community. We’re shaping the future, one birth at a time.
