Relationship Coaching:

While exact statistics can vary, research indicates several trends in couples’ relationships after having a baby:

  1. Conflict and Resentment: Studies suggest that conflicts related to parenting responsibilities, decision-making, and differences in parenting styles can arise, leading to increased tension and resentment between partners.
  2. Decline in Relationship Satisfaction: Studies suggest that a significant percentage of couples experience a decline in relationship satisfaction after the birth of a child. This decline can be attributed to various factors, including increased stress, lack of sleep, changes in priorities, and shifts in responsibilities.
  1. Communication Challenges: Many couples face communication difficulties after becoming parents. The demands of caring for a newborn can lead to decreased time for meaningful communication between partners, which can strain the relationship.
  2. Diminished Intimacy: The arrival of a baby often impacts a couple’s intimacy. Sleep deprivation, physical exhaustion, and changes in routine can reduce the frequency of intimate moments between partners.


As a certified practitioner in the Gottman Method and Bringing Baby Home program by the Gottman Institute,  Angela Hill from Therapy for Moms, helps parents navigate the challenges of transitioning into parenthood by coaching new parents regarding:

Effective Communication in a Relationship

Effective Communication:

This skill focuses on teaching couples how to communicate openly and effectively amidst the stress and changes that come with having a baby. Couples learn active listening techniques, expressing emotions constructively, and understanding each other's needs and concerns without judgment.

Conflict Management

Conflict Management:

Understanding how to handle conflicts that arise around parenting styles, responsibilities, and the adjustment to new routines is crucial. Bringing Baby Home equips couples with tools to manage conflicts in a healthy, productive manner, emphasizing compromise and finding solutions that benefit both partners.

Strengthening Emotional Connection

Strengthening Emotional Connection:

Nurturing the emotional bond between partners is essential. This skill involves fostering intimacy, maintaining friendship, and finding ways to prioritize the relationship amidst the demands of caring for a newborn.

Parenting as a Team

Parenting as a Team:

The program emphasizes the importance of teamwork in parenting. It helps couples discuss and plan the division of responsibilities, parenting strategies, and decision-making. Couples learn how to support each other and work collaboratively to navigate the challenges of raising a child together.
