"We give you the tools to approach life with an open and pragmatic mindset, hopefully creating ease, spaciousness, and affectionate attention around the perinatal period."
— Kristy Zadrozny, Founder of Expecting(nyc)
Focusing on evidence-based, mindful childbirth and parenting preparation through education, birth and postpartum support, Expecting(nyc) was created to help families build the necessary support structure to thrive in NYC.
When we came up with the name “Expecting”, we were interested in creating space for families to manage all of the excitement, anxiety and unknowns of pregnancy and childbirth. As a mindfulness-based practice, we have come to understand that sometimes our expectations create more discomfort in childbirth and parenting than the actual pains of labor. We realize expectations are a normal part of the human experience and so our goal is to help you guide you through this transformational time, demystifying the process.
At Expecting(nyc), we want to reframe the expectation mindset to include the understanding that although we may have hopes, dreams and aspirations for a certain outcome surrounding our pregnancy, birth and postpartum experience, we ultimately cannot control this outcome. However, we can work towards changing our relationship to the curve balls life throws at us.
We give you the tools to approach life with an open and pragmatic mindset, hopefully creating ease, spaciousness and affectionate attention around the perinatal period.
