You’ve got your nursery ready, car seats installed, but have you scheduled your relationship classes?
Now more and more expectant couples are adding therapy to the list of things to do to get ready for a new baby.
A recent study showed two-thirds of couples felt less satisfied with their relationships within the first three months of having a child.
So, in response, a growing number of programs are now introducing relationship classes in addition to childbirth education.
One study found that couples who participated in weekly group counseling had a much smaller decline in marital satisfaction than parents who didn’t attend counseling.
