Prepare Your Relationship for Parenthood
Most couples imagine life with new baby as a blissful time full of loving moments. Which is why it’s surprising to hear that nearly 70% of couples experience a significant drop in their relationship satisfaction and a major increase in conflict and hostility.
But you can stay friends after having a baby.
Drs. John and Julie Gottman, of The Gottman Institute, have developed the evidence-based and research-tested Bringing Baby Home program. They’ve been studying couples and relationship issues for nearly four decades, including the transition to parenthood and have pulled together their findings of what successful couples do to strengthen their friendship and effectively handle conflict.
Bringing Baby Home is unlike any other class you’ll take while preparing for your baby.
In this highly interactive workshop you’ll spend time with your partner developing skills to keep you connected as a couple and help you bond with baby. You’ll explore how to:
- Share daily responsibilities
- Deepen your friendship with each other
- Deal with the normal stress that comes with having a baby
- Avoid relationship meltdown
- Understand and meet your baby’s developmental needs
- Solve problems together
- Keep romance alive
Research shows that participants in this class experience positive results related to infant development and temperament, parent-baby interactions, father and partner involvement, and couple relationship quality.
