    Becoming pregnant is a different journey for everyone and some experience more obstacles than others. If you are working to become pregnant, partnering with a coach will help you build the skills to manage your stress now and into the future. Your coach is your personal trainer for maternal wellbeing, an educator and guide to help you upgrade your personal wellbeing toolkit. If you have experienced a previous loss, are experiencing worry or simply need support, the Courage Program is here to walk you through it. Our Courage Platform offers assessments, tools and community support, our VR technology support will help to articulate psychoeducation to develop deeper understanding and acceptance, and your personal coach will help guide you through each step.


    For enhanced needs, psychotherapy with VR through the Courage Psychotherapy service with a Licensed Mental Health Psychotherapist is available.

    During the first three months of pregnancy there is so much excitement as well as questions about what is to come. Working with your coach as your personal trainer for maternal wellbeing, can help you tune into all the changes and learn practices to stay well throughout your pregnancy. The Courage Program will provide you with acceptance, preparation, confidence and comfort for the journey ahead.

    Now that the “morning sickness” is (hopefully) over, you and baby are growing quickly. There are changes happening in your body, your mind and also your lifestyle. As you are touring hospitals you may be thinking more deeply into your birthing plan and you may feel a mix of hope and uncertainty. Working with your coach as your personal trainer for maternal wellbeing, will help you feel prepared and confident about your next stages. The Courage Program also offers community support and our VR technology will help to articulate psychoeducation to develop deeper understanding and acceptance.

    During the last trimester before giving birth you may be seeing your care team more frequently, getting much less sleep and be preoccupied with preparing your home to welcome baby. Working with your coach, your personal trainer for maternal wellbeing, will make sure you are preparing your mind as well. If you are pregnant with multiples, have experienced previous loss, are considered a high-risk pregnancy, are on bed rest or you have a fear of birthing, working with your coach will help you find acceptance, confidence and comfort in the journey ahead. You will also have access to the Courage Platform offering community support and VR support will help to articulate psychoeducation to develop deeper understanding and acceptance.

    Heading home with baby is the day you’ve been waiting for. You may have spent countless hours reading about, preparing for and thinking through your birthing plan.  Now that baby is here, the focus is on getting to know them as well as your physical recovery. Little time may be spent aware of your mental state, quickly shifting hormones, emotional changes, and the inevitable baby blues. Your birth may or may not have gone according to your plan and you may have needed to enter a NICU journey. Preparing for this time with a coach, you will have the comfort and confidence in your ability to manage this time well. Having your coach lead you through relaxation techniques will make sure you feel well cared for and running through your well-practiced skills in between calls will keep you on track. This a beautiful but sometimes messy phase, you got this mama!


    For enhanced needs, psychotherapy with VR through the Courage Psychotherapy service with a Licensed Mental Health Psychotherapist is available.

    The COURAGE platform is continuously evolving, expect new VR content, community support and health equity services to cater to all mothers & parents in the future! Our goal is to impact a million mothers/parents by 2030.
