Event description

Description

Bringing Baby Home is the only scientifically based workshop that has proven success in teaching skills that help couples manage the changes that occur when a child is born.



Even the strongest relationships are strained during the transition to parenthood. 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, 69% of new parents experience conflict, disappointment, and hurt feelings.

The Gottman Institute's research-based Bringing Baby Home workshops prepare couples for life with baby and helps them be the best parenting team possible. In a relaxed and supportive environment, 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.

This workshop combines scientific research and public education to improve the quality of life for babies and children by strengthening their families. It teaches new parents how to gain relationship satisfaction and create healthy social, emotional, and intellectual development for their children.

Research on the program has shown that one year after participation in the program, couples have less “relationship meltdown,” higher relationship quality, less interpersonal hostility, and markedly less incidence of progressive symptoms of post-partum depression (22.5% compared to 66.5% in the control group).

This program is intended for all couples, with struggles or not.
