Bringing Baby Home

Relationship and Parenting Program

Designed for both pregnant and new parents, the Bringing Baby Home Program will give you the skills and information to recognize and cope successfully with the normal stressors of becoming a family.

The program teaches couples how to:

  • Increase friendship in their relationship
  • Deal effectively with conflict
  • Involve dads in infant care and parenting
  • Improve the quality of parent– infant interaction
  • Recognize the psychological and emotional needs of their child

Built on over 40 years of research by Drs. John and Julie Gottman at the Relationship Research Institute in Seattle, Washington, this educational program aims to improve the quality of life for babies and children by strengthening the parental relationship.
