Bringing Baby Home
Helping new parents with the transition to parenthood
Bringing Baby Home Workshop
What is Bringing Baby Home?
Bringing Baby Home is a research-based, research-tested workshop for expectant couples and parents of infants. It was developed by the Gottman Institute, well known for decades of leading-edge scientific research on couples, child development and the transition to parenthood.
Research shows that 67% of couples report a significant drop in their relationship quality within 3 years after the birth of a child, and an increase in conflict and hostility.
