    Bringing Baby Home (Developed by Gottman Institute)

    BRINGING BABY HOME (BBH) is a two day psycho-educational experiential workshop, created by the Dr. John and Julie Gottman to help prepare and assist couples for the changes and challenges that come with the birth of a child. The program aims to provide the tools couples need to be the best parents they can be while maintaining the quality of their relationship and building a strong and healthy family together.

    WHY ATTEND THE BBH WORKSHOP?
    Research shows that although couples report high relationship satisfaction during pregnancy, 2 out of 3 couples will experience a significant drop in relationship satisfaction within 3 years of the child’s birth. Research shows that improving your relationship before or shortly after the birth of your child, not only benefits your marriage but also significantly benefits your child.

    WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

    • Expectant parents, new parents and parents with any children under 3 years old
    • Those who want to strengthen a good relationship
    • Those experiencing relationship difficulties
    • Those needing to develop early co-parenting skills


    BENEFITS FOR COUPLES

    • Greater conflict management skills
    • Greater sensitivity and responsiveness to infants signals
    • Greater ability to co-parent, with greater father involvement and more secure father-infant attachment
    • A decrease in symptoms of post-natal depression and anxiety in both mother and father


    BENEFITS FOR CHILDREN

    • Promotes emotional, social, cognitive and physical development
    • Children develop ability to self soothe and are less distressed
    • Sleep longer and cry less
    • Learn complex language faster
