Bringing Baby Home


Research shows that within three years after the birth of a baby, approximately ⅔ of couples will experience a significant drop in relationship quality and have a dramatic increase in conflict and hostility. Bringing Baby Home addresses this international social problem.

The Bringing Baby Home Program is dedicated to improving the quality of life for babies and children by strengthening their families. It is a research-based and research-tested, psycho-educational intervention. The program is focused on helping expectant couples and parents of infants and toddlers to equip themselves with the knowledge and skills needed to cope constructively with the changes brought about by the birth of a child.

Who is the Bringing Baby Home workshop for?

Bringing Baby Home is an educational program for pregnant couples and families with children up to three years of age.

Research shows that couples who have participated in the Program experience:

  • A significantly lower rate of postpartum mood disorders and depression
  • A decrease in relationship hostility
  • A higher level of relationship satisfaction
  • A decreased likelihood of divorce

The content of the program evolved from Dr. John Gottman’s 40 years of marriage and family research and is designed to teach parents to:

  • Increase friendship in their relationship
  • Deal effectively with conflict
  • Keep dads involved in infant care and parenting
  • Improve the quality of parent-infant interaction
  • Recognize the psychological and emotional needs of their child
  • Co-parent effectively


This 2-day workshop is taught in one weekend on Saturday and Sunday from 9am – 4pm, with a 1-hour lunch break. The workshop location is the Griffin Business Centre in North Vancouver.

Class size is limited, pre-registration is required. The $500 fee/couple includes workbook and materials.
