Wednesdays at Hillcrest
Join us on Wednesdays, starting Feb 5 through April 1 (except March 18) from 6:30 to 8 PM in the chapel for Bringing Baby Home, an eight-week class that helps couples maintain marital strength after baby.
Having a baby is a joyous occasion, yet even solid relationships experience stress and tension in their adjustment from couple-hood alone, to parenthood. The Gottman Institute's Bringing Baby Home® program, and the Drs. Gottman's book, "And Baby Makes Three," offer research-based approaches to creating a positive home environment that nurtures physical, emotional, and mental health, and maintains romance and intimacy. The course also considers postpartum depression, temperaments, self-regulation, emotion coaching, and the different ways that mothers and fathers interact with children.
Doug and Claudia Burford present the material in a way consistent with Christian faith and identity. (Many concepts found in "The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work"®—previously taught by the Burfords at Hillcrest—will be further applied to children and parenting.)
