Details:

Having a baby is an opportunity for a new beginning – new relationships are built, new goals are set, and new dreams are created. However, despite the excitement that comes with welcoming a new baby, research has shown that the majority of couples will experience a significant drop in their quality of relationship and will have a dramatic increase in conflict. Challenges for new parents can also include emotional changes, postpartum and other mood disorders. These changes can often lead to compromised parenting, decreased quality in parent-infant interaction and a decline in partner relationship quality.

Based on years of research the couple’s emotional connection is the real foundation for a baby’s healthy development. The Bringing Baby Home Program is dedicated to improving the quality of life for babies and children by building a strong family foundation and strengthening the relationships of both partners to each other and with baby.

It is a researched-cased, researched-tested and psycho-educational program that is focused on helping expectant couples and parents of infants and toddlers to equip themselves with the knowledge and skills needed to cope constructively with the changes brought about by the birth of a child.

Goals of the workshop include:

  • Learn how to maintain relationship satisfaction after having a baby
