It's Positive! Now what???

Prenatal Couple's Workshop


The pregnancy test has spelled out "Pregnant", or made two lines, or turned pink, or smiled. So, what's next? Have a big belly for a while, go to the hospital, and bring the baby home - right? Not quite...

Having a child is one of the most amazing, relationship changing experiences a couple can have - it's also one of the most costly. Babies are demanding in every way: physically, emotionally, intellectually, spiritually, and socially. Statistically, marital satisfaction plummets in the first year after having a baby. Of course, it's not all bad to become a parent! There are joys and fulfillment found in parenting that cannot be found anywhere else.

This workshop will give you, as a couple, information about the types of obstacles to expect and how to manage them. There will be education about how pregnancy impacts the relationship and how the baby will change it even more. Learn how the family you grew up in will affect how you parent. Having some information about what to expect before and after the baby comes can prevent a lot of stress and frustration.
