Bringing Baby Home

Lack of sleep, never-ending housework and new fiscal concerns can lead to profound stress and a decline in marital satisfaction – all of which affect baby’s care. Not surprisingly, 67% of new parents experience conflict, disappointment and hurt feelings.

This workshop is based on the Gottman Institute research. It is for pregnant and parenting couples who want the skills needed to encourage healthy, supportive family relationships.

It prepares couples for life with baby and helps them be the best parenting team possible. Parents learn to strengthen their relationship and foster baby’s development during this challenging time. They build on what Dr. Gottman and colleagues found is the best predictor of marital adjustment after baby arrives: the quality of friendship in the marriage.
