Becoming Us - Baby Proof your relationship - 4 week class
This Becoming Us BEFORE Baby series has been designed to specifically address the challenges that expectant couples will be faced with as they welcome their baby. The classes are based on parenting pioneer and author, Elly Taylor’s 15 years of research in how to best prepare/repair the relationship as couples move through the normal challenges that happen when they decide to grow their family. Parenting is hard, but it can be easier when you work well as a team!Please note, this 4-session series.A whopping 92% of couples report increased conflict in the years following their baby’s arrival. In this class you’ll discover… how to manage the unexpected, ways to support your whole family as you move through this huge life transformation, routines that will support you, your partner and your growing baby’s health and well-being, how to better adjust to your new normal, how to baby-proof your relationship, do conflict well, and connect and reconnect through your life-long parenting journey!Barb Buckner Suárez is one of the first Health Educators in the world to be offering these group classes! She’s been teaching them as a pilot program through Legacy Health System since April 2017. She’s stepping into the community to teach these classes to increase the availability and awareness of this most important work.You may have taken childbirth and breastfeeding classes to prepare for your baby — but have you prepared your relationship for this transition from couple to family?It’s tempting to think that you will be one of the lucky few to not experience the normal changes and challenges that come with moving from couple to family. The expectations about how this huge life transition will go might end up not matching your reality. You just need the right tools to prepare you for what’s to come. Becoming Us classes can provide those tools and missing preparation. I look forward to working with you! (Cost of the class includes a copy of the book, Becoming Us, and all other class materials.)Milagros' take on the class:People say nothing can prepare you for parenthood, but that’s not true! Welcoming your new baby and becoming a family is a time of change. Knowing how to work with one another as a team through these common, normal and expected changes can make your connection to one another deeper and stronger. This class is ideal for expectant parents who want to learn how to “baby-proof” their relationship. Find new ways to grow even closer to one another, feel calmer, more confident and less stressed out, and become true partners in parenthood.
