A 2 day workshop for new and soon to be parents - Presented by Relationship After Baby.
Bringing Baby Home™ (BBH) is a 2 day research based and evaluated program for new parents experiencing the transition to parenthood. Developed by the relationship masters Dr. Julie Schwartz Gottman and Dr. John Gottman, one of the world’s leading research scientists on marriage, relationships and families, it is designed for expecting parents and new parents alike. It is a fun, relaxed and informative workshop that will teach you skills that will last a lifetime!
Bringing a new baby home is physically and emotionally one of the most significant events that can happen in a couple's lifetime - the transition from being a ‘WE’ to becoming a ‘3’. Presented by Kylie Jo Elliott from Relationship After Baby introduces you to a range of evidenced based tools, strategies and concepts to help you maintain a stable, close and loving relationship.
We see pictures of ‘loved up’ new parents smiling at their new baby – holding hands as the 3 of them stroll through parks – beaming happy faces of untold love and joy. And while all these fabulous things can, and do, happen, often the reality of bringing a new baby home can also bring confusion, fear, uncertainty, and for as many as 69% ... a significant relationship decline between the new Mum and Dad! 69%!!! That is 7 out of 10 couples. So first thing to understand here – YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
BBH firstly teaches couples how to strengthen their friendship, increase intimacy and regulate conflict, and when Mum and Dad’s relationship is STRONG, baby's new life is much stronger, healthier and happier.
In addition to focussing on a great ‘Mum – Dad’ relationship, couples also learn about child development, how to co-parent with their partner, and discover ways to keep both parents involved.
In the Bringing Baby Home Workshop™ you will:
- Learn how to stay connected to your partner during the transition from being a couple to being a family.
- Learn how to cope with the changes brought about by bringing your baby home.
- Learn how to promote the development of a healthier baby and help them in their emotional, social, cognitive, and physical development.
- Learn how to deal with the “baby blues” and decrease the chance of post partum depression. Both for Mum & Dad!
- Learn valuable insights from a research based and research tested program.
WHO IS IT FOR?
BBH is for pregnant couples, new parents & families with young children.
This may be the most important 12 hours you will ever spend in the preparation of bringing your baby home. Even if you already have a little bundle of joy at home ... or a couple of them ... this is for you. What you will learn will change your life!
