Andrea Schneider, LCSW is sharing with us about how our difficult, toxic or traumatic past relationships might affect our journey into motherhood, fatherhood and parenthood.

This fascinating discussion digs deeper into how we may respond, behave and interact as new parents...based on our own early experiences with our own caregivers, parents or influential difficult relationships.

We chat about:

* What is relational trauma? How does it show up for perinatal mothers and fathers?
* What are some signs that a person might notice if they are impacted by this?
* What can they do? What kinds of support, therapy, etc is available?
* Coping suggestions & hopeful messages
