Baby Proof You Relationship Workshop with The Relationship Institute of San Francisco

10/03/2016
6:30pm - 8:00pm

Is your Relationship Ready for your Baby?

We spend so much of our time preparing for the baby. We research cribs, mattresses, bottles and activity mats. We've taken a tour of the hospital, and visited day cares, but isn’t it strange to think that we don’t do anything to prepare for our relationship? Many couples enter parenthood excited, then find that there has been a stressful shift in their marriage with the onset of a new baby. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to keep your marriage as happy as possible, for you and for the baby!

This workshop will go over common pitfalls that couples fall into after their baby is born, and how to navigate around them. We will give you the brain science behind stress, arm you with tools & give you education on how to strengthen your relationship in the midst of this transition. Couples will leave with a road map on how to prepare for their relationship for parenthood.

Who should come?
This workshop is geared for both parents to attend, however, even if one of attends, it will be still worth your while!

Your Presenters
From The Relationship Institute of San Francisco (TRISF), Founder, Erika Boissiere and Alexis Monnier are both Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists who specialize in couples therapy. They use tools, education and cognitive behavioral therapy to help their clients with the unique challenges of being in relationship.
