This class is best suited for couples but can be attended by one parent.
Special Note: If you are comfortable bringing your baby (under 6 months) you are more than welcome to do that. The facility is very well equipped for infants. Having said that, you may get more out of the class if you have some dedicated time with your partner, or self (if attending on your own). Either way, I hope you can join us.
Did you know?
Every year in the United States, approximately 4 million babies are born to couples. This period holds potential for great joy in parents’ lives; yet research shows that within three years after the birth of a child, approximately two-thirds of couples will experience a significant drop in relationship quality and have a dramatic increase in conflict and hostility. Furthermore, many mothers experience not only the baby blues, but also postpartum depression as well as psychopathology. The result of these changes is compromised parenting and decreased quality of the parent-infant relationship. Therefore, it is critical to the health of young families that issues such as the dissolving relationship quality are addressed. “Baby Makes Three” has been designed to help in this process. Content is adapted from the Bringing Baby Home Workshop developed by the Relationship Research Institute, a non-profit research institute founded by John Gottman, PhD.
