Are you expecting a baby this year, or do you have a baby under a year old?
Many couples find it challenging to make the transition to parenthood. The Bringing Baby Home workshop can help.
Bringing Baby Home is a psychoeducational workshop designed by The Gottman Institute specifically to help parents and families through the transition to parenthood. This program focuses on building and maintaining the quality of the couple’s relationship, which ultimately improves the quality of life for babies and children. The program builds on the strength of the couple’s relationship and teaches new skills to encourage continued relationship satisfaction as they transition to parenthood.
The main goal of the Bringing Baby Home Program is to empower families to make the transition to parenthood a successful one. In fact, for couples who take the Bringing Baby Home workshop, research has found:
- Parental relationship quality increases
- Relationships between the baby and parents improves
- The father is more involved
- There is less hostility between parents
- Mothers experience lower rates of maternal postpartum depression and baby blues
