Bringing Baby Home is a research-based couples workshop for expectant and new parents facilitated by two Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists. Within the first three years after the birth of a baby two-thirds of couples will experience a significant drop in relationship quality and a dramatic increase in conflict and hostility. This workshop has been shown to help new families experience the best possible outcomes.

Join us for this 2-day event that will cover the following topics:

  • Increase friendship in your relationship
  • Deal effectively with conflict
  • Keep dads involved in infant care and parenting
  • Improve the quality of parent-infant interactions
  • Recognize the psychological and emotional needs of your child
  • Co-parent effectively

Expectant and new parents will be able to:

  • Explain what to expect during the transition to parenthood
  • Describe child development in the first year
  • Create strategies to co-parent with your partner
  • Learn ways to improve communication
  • Demonstrate how to strengthen friendship, intimacy, and conflict resolution skills
  • Recognize the signs of postpartum mood, anxiety, and adjustment disorders and be aware of support or treatment options
