Is there sex AFTER bringing baby home!

26 January 2017 / Relationship Help / Bringing Baby Home

It’s an all too familiar scenario.

You excitedly bring home your first baby, full of love, hope and anticipation – only to find that by bringing a new little person into your relationship, your own partnership begins to deteriorate. In fact, research has shown that most new parents will experience a huge increase in arguing and fighting during the first weeks and months of becoming a family. This in turn leads to almost 70% of new parents becoming permanently unhappy within their relationship.

There are many reasons for this potential drop in happiness, but today we are exploring the role that intimacy and sex has during your transition to parenthood – and how this can effect the long-term success of your relationship.

An introduction to our Bringing Baby Home workshops

10 March 2016 / Bringing Baby Home

Congratulations! You are having a new baby – but please don’t forget - you also have a marriage!

There are over 300,000 babies born in Australia every year. 300,000 sets of parents navigating a range of changes in their relationship as their new bundle of joy arrives! Sadly, bringing home a new baby is not the emotional epicentre of happiness that is often portrayed in the media or believed by the masses! In fact – over 2/3 of all new parents will experience a significant drop in relationship quality within the first 3 years after becoming a family.
