“Bringing Baby Home”
I am happy to be a “Bringing Baby Home” workshop educator and facilitator helping new parents with the transition to parenthood.
The Bringing Baby Home workshop is a research-based and research-tested psycho-educational workshop that is dedicated to improving the quality of life for babies and children by strengthening their families.
Bringing Baby Home (BBH) was developed by renowned parenting and relationship experts, Drs. John and Julie Gottman. The Bringing Baby Home program is perfect for those who are: interested in having a baby, expecting a baby, and already parenting an infant or toddler (ages 0-3).
The goal of Bringing Home Baby is to equip a couple with the knowledge and skill sets to constructively cope with the various changes that typically occur during the first three years after their baby is born.
In the BBH workshops, a couple learns how to do the following:
Strengthen their friendship
Increase intimacy and affection
Work through conflict with greater ease
Maintain relationship satisfaction
Create positive parent-child interactions
Ensure quality involvement for both parents
Reduces the incidence or severity of postpartum mood disorders
Increase understanding of child development
Create co-parenting strategies
Improve communication, connection, and compromise between partners
Assist in recognizing signs of postpartum mood disorders and awareness of treatment options
