When you make the decision to learn how to co-parent effectively and raise your child in a healthy emotional environment, your child will be more likely to:
Bringing Baby Home is for any parenting couple, including:
The best time to go through Bringing Baby Home is before your baby arrives -- but many couples have successfully completed this program even after becoming parents. If you and your parenting partner are committed to strengthening your relationship and building a positive environment for your baby, then it’s not yet too late.
