Becoming Us is a holistic family-centred approach to pregnancy, birth and beyond.
Prepare mothers, fathers and parents to grow as individuals, grow closer as partners and thrive as a new family.
Do you think expecting parents need more preparation for the sudden life changes and new relationship challenges that come with parenthood?
Do you believe new parents need to know how to cope with the stresses of early parenthood and ways to support their partner to cope too?
Do you want powerful tools in your toolbox that only take minutes for you but can last a lifetime for your clients?
Can you say that a training is beautiful? Because this training is beautiful!

The Becoming Us Story
Following the birth of her first child around 30 years ago, relationship counsellor Elly Taylor was shocked to discover a deep gap in antenatal preparation: parents were being blindsided by the normal life changes and new relationship challenges that commonly come with parenthood. This gap was negatively impacting the mental health and emotional wellbeing of new mothers, fathers, parents and families.
Through working intimately with parents and partners as a relationship counsellor, Elly was able to create Becoming Us, a groundbreaking relationship-developmental approach to pregnancy, birth and the first crucial years of family.
Becoming Us supports the mental, emotional and relationship wellbeing of mothers, fathers and partners and provides families with a pathway for coping, growing and thriving.
We hope you’ll join us to fill the gap for our next generation of parents. This work has never been more needed than now!

This is a gigantic missing piece of the big picture. This knowledge really adds depth and a new dimension, opening up all kinds of possibilities for educating and supporting couples so they get the best possible start together.
