Beyond Bringing Baby Home
Babies have a way of changing everything. They can bring tremendous joy and tremendous stress all at the same time. As the family focus is shifted to baby, many parents find themselves feeling less connected as a couple. Come join us in rebuilding and strengthening your couple relationship so your family can thrive.
For Parents of Infants Six-Months-Old+ and Toddlers
The Beyond Bringing Baby Home program builds on the concepts and skills introduced in the Bringing Baby Home workshop. You will practice essential skills for talking about things that aren’t working and rebuild the sex, passion, and romance in your relationship. Learn how to meet your child’s emotional needs by becoming an “emotion coach”, and explore how you can teach important values through daily rituals and family traditions.
This program is offered as a one day workshop.
