Bringing Baby Home is a research-based, research-tested workshop for expectant couples and parents of infants that provides concrete skills and techniques for managing the transition to parenthood. It was developed by the Gottman Institute, which is known for decades of leading-edge scientific research on couples, child development and the transition to parenthood. This workshop is designed to strengthen the marital bond so that couples will be more effective at navigating this new stage in their lives.  It aims to increase a couple’s sense of connection and provide them with tools to better regulate their conflicts and personal differences during this period in life of heightened stress that comes from sleep deprivation, increased responsibilities and decreased leisure time.
