This workshop will help new parents and parents-to-be focus on themselves and their relationship after baby arrives. It will examine how having a child (or children) changes a relationship and how partners can stay connected – and loving – through the experience of having a baby.
The course will focus on normal developmental processes in new families. It will teach practical communication skills and lead parents through exercises to strengthen their bonds as a couple. A central theme will be identifying values both partners want for their family. The goal is to create a solid, happy and united family.
