BRINGING BABY HOME

​​

Bringing a baby home is life changing and can have a huge impact on your relationship. In fact, the majority of couples report a signifiant dip in relationship satisfaction within one year after they welcome a baby. Yikes. No one wants that! 

THIS PARENTING + RELATIONSHIP WORKSHOP WILL HELP YOU AND YOUR PARTNER FEEL MORE LOVE AND LESS STRESS.  

We believe that thriving relationships = thriving humans.

This workshop will be rejuvenating. You will spend two-days with the person you love, building tools for a lasting friendship, equality in parenting, and meaningful problem solving. Don't let the name fool you. This workshop is for anyone pregnant or parenting a human under the age of 3.

The Bringing Baby Home workshop is based 40+ years of relationship research​ from The Gottman Institute.

You and your partner will learn simple ways to:​

  • Keep your relationship the priority.
  • Transform fights into connection.
  • Set up your new family for healthy bonding long after the birth.
  • New ways to communicate with love and respect when stressed.

Thresholds has been offering Bringing Baby Home workshops since 2008, and we see the struggles that new families face in our busy, busy world.

Parenting is a wonderful and hard adjustment, and fighting with each other makes everything worse! Each class will give you and your partner relationship tools and time to practice without the distractions of everyday life.

Curious to learn more about the experience of a Bringing Home Baby Workshops? Here are answers to some Frequently Asked Questions:

When should I take this class? During pregnancy or once I have a child?

Bringing Baby Home is designed for parents who are pregnant or have kids under the age of 3. Really you can take it whenever the time feels right. Taking it while pregnant will help you lay a good foundation for your relationship while parenting from day one, but if you already have children it's never too late to nurture your relationship!  If you are pregnant please consider taking this course together with our Birthing from Within childbirth classes - check out our sweet package deals!

Can I bring my baby to class with me?

If you already have a baby they can come with you to class if they are pre-crawling (usually before 6 months of age). Our family friendly classroom is filled with soft furnishings, yoga balls, pillows and lots of space for babies (and grown-ups if needed) to roll around on the floor.

We have a toddler? Is it still ok to attend?

Absolutely. The class is designed for parents of children under the age of 3. If your child is crawling or walking, you will need to arrange childcare during the workshops. If your baby is pre-crawling, they are welcome to join us.

Is the cost covered by insurance?

The class fee of $275 is covered in full for Microsoft Employees!

Do you provide parenting resources?

Absolutely.  Along with our blog, we share plenty of excellent online and print resources for you to choose from to enhance your parenting and relationship experience.  To get you started, we have included a few favorite parenting resources here >

Dan
Middle School Teacher

“Our class WAS magic! Both of us are so thankful for the experience and the new tools. We both believe our relationship and family dynamic with new baby will ultimately be better because of it.”

Lanie

“As part of our anniversary Elisabeth and I review the year and we each do a ‘high-low-high’ from the past year. We both agreed that our weekend with you and the ‘Bringing Baby Home’ class was a true highlight of the year. It was probably the best thing we’ve done for our relationship since our pre-marital counseling.”
