BETH GOSS & JONI PARTHEMER, AUGUST 2020

Teach the Bringing Baby Home Program to couples in your community.

Even the strongest relationships are strained during the transition to parenthood. Lack of sleep, never-ending housework and new fiscal concerns can lead to profound stress and a decline in marital satisfaction — all of which affect baby’s care. Not surprisingly, 67% of new parents experience conflict, disappointment and hurt feelings.
Our research-based Bringing Baby Home workshops prepare couples for life with baby and helps them be the best parenting team possible. In a relaxed and supportive environment, parents learn to strengthen their relationship and foster baby’s development during this challenging time. They build on what Dr. Gottman and colleagues found is the best predictor of marital adjustment after baby arrives: the quality of friendship in the marriage. Learn how to teach pregnant and parenting couples the skills needed to encourage healthy, supportive family relationships.

This newly designed, research-based training equips participants to independently teach pregnant and parenting couples to successfully prepare for the transition to parenthood.

The training is a high quality program that combines lecture, multi-media presentations, interactive exercises, and discussion. Dedicated trainers facilitate two days of research-based training, teaching participants how to use the materials, content, tools, and exercises. You will be equipped to teach the Bringing Baby Home workshop to parents immediately following the training.
