Bringing Baby Home Series

The Bringing Baby Home Workshop Series is based on research showing that nearly two-thirds of couples report a decrease in relationship satisfaction upon the addition of children. Designed for parents to take anytime from pregnancy through the toddler years, these workshops teach the skills the other third of couples use to keep their love alive during this often difficult transition. Workshops may be taken individually or in a series and are appropriate for first time parents and parents of many!

Being a certified Gottman educator, Mark is authorized to present this program on behalf of John Gottman, Ph.D., the creator of the program. CLICK HERE TO SEE VIDEO INFORMATION ON THIS PROGRAM.




DATES FOR THIS SERIES WILL BE ANNOUNCED SOON.

To be notified by e-mail when these dates are released:







1. Transition Time: It doesn't take a workshop to figure out that kids change a couples relationship, but come      learn what's normal and what's not. Also learn to recognize the common baby blues and dangerous                    postpartum depression, and their effects on the couple relationship and parenting. Finally, learn tips from          the experts on how to adjust to the four most common (and potentially dangerous) changes brought about          when baby comes home.
    TO BE HELD:

2.  Remaining Friends: Parenting times can be rough on a couples friendship as sleep deprivation sets in,           schedules get busier, and budgets often get strained---and that's just in the first week! But one of the                 greatest gifts parents can give their children is for mom and dad to maintain a strong friendship. Come learn       tips on creating a culture of appreciation, the daily stress reducing conversation, the importance of touch,           and how to express needs when balancing parenting, couple time, and individual time.
TO BE HELD:

3. Where should baby sleep? Studies show that relationship conflict increases dramatically during the first         year after baby arrives, and this can obviously have long term consequences. In this workshop, learn how to     recognize the four warning signs of relationship meltdown and how to use the four steps of constructive             problem solving as your family adjusts to having a little one at home.

TO BE HELD:

4.  Establishing a Legacy: In this final workshop, learn tips on taking your couple and parenting relationship         beyond the often repetitive daily routine. Learn how to preserve sex and romance, the importance of                   fathers and how to keep them involved, how to establish shared meaning and the importance of honoring           mothers and fathers.

DATES FOR THIS SERIES WILL BE ANNOUNCED SOON.
