Bringing Baby Home

Strengthen your relationship before your baby arrives

The Bringing Baby Home program is a research based and research tested program ready to help new families get the best start possible.

Although welcoming a new baby into your home is a joyous event, it also brings with it relational stress, family adjustment, and often postpartum depression which ultimately effects parent-child interaction and infant development. Research shows that within three years after birth of a child, approximately two-thirds of couples experience a significant drop in the quality of their relationship and have a dramatic increase in conflict and hostility.

This 12-hour workshop helps parents gain relationship/communication skills, to regulate conflict, discover each other on a deeper level and prepares them to be partners in parenting while continuing to grow a loving couple relationship. The Gottmans’ research shows that this workshop helps couples to enhance their relationship satisfaction after the birth of their child.

After intense training, testing and teaching, Balance You is happy to announce the addition of Drs. John and Julie Gottman’s workshop “Bringing Baby Home” to our other fine presentations and workshops. The insights and workable relationship tools are invaluable to get to know your partner and your children more intimately on a continuing basis and have skills to work through the everyday stresses of life.

The workshop is for couples expecting a baby and for new parents.

The workshop is offered quarterly in two formats:
• A 3-week course: once a week a four-hour session
• A weekend course: twice a weekend session of six hours

Costs per couple:
Early Bird (until 2 weeks before workshop): 285 euro
