Bringing Baby Home

Bringing Baby Home is an educational program that explores in depth the transition from a relationship between two adults to a family with a baby(s).  According to the Relationship Institute, “About two-thirds of couples had serious problems in the first three years of the baby’s life, where their happiness with one another went down and their hostility increased.” Co-founded by Drs. John and Julie Schwartz Gottman the approach follows their leading-edge research over the last couple decades.

The program’s goal is to improve the quality of life for young families as parents and as couples. The in-depth research shows us the fundamental reasons why young parents are overwhelmed and stressed. It provides useful, easy-to-understand interventions that enable couples to alter habits, grow in effective communication and conflict regulation skills, and reconnect on a higher level.  Bringing Baby Home Educational Program is for couples beginning family planning, for pregnant families, and young families with three-year-olds and younger.
