New Parent Workshop

Weekend Classes to Strengthen Your Family with Your New Addition

Sessions held in downtown Miami, FL

2 Weekend Sessions To A Stronger, Happier Relationship with Your Spouse & Your New Baby (or Toddler!)

Bringing Baby Home Workshop is based on the research of Drs. John & Julie Gottman.

The Gottman’s research demonstrates that when couples become parents, there is a significant decrease in their relationship satisfaction. Further research has shown that relationship discord and conflict have a profound negative effect on the couples’ infants and toddlers.

By teaching couples how to build a strong emotional foundation in their family during the very early stages of a child’s life, children are raised in healthier environments.

Couples who have participated in The Bringing Baby Home Program experience:

  • A significantly lower rate of postpartum mood disorders & depression
  • A decrease in relationship hostility
  • A higher level of relationship satisfaction
  • A decreased likelihood of divorce

This program will teach parents to:

  • Increase friendship in their relationship
  • Deal effectively with conflict
  • Keep dads involved in infant care & parenting
  • Improve the quality of parent–infant interaction
  • Recognize the psychological & emotional needs of their child
  • Co-Parent effectively

The Program also teaches ways to nurture the family environment through the toddler & preschool years.

By supporting couples as they become parents, children benefit.

 

These benefits result in positive changes for families.

Once this foundation is established in a family, research shows that:

  • Children do better in school
  • Adapt better socially
  • Are physically & emotionally healthier
