Are you pregnant or expecting a baby?

  • Feeling a bit nervous or not knowing what to expect?

  • OR feeling excited, optimistic, prepared, and informed, but you want to set your new family up for success?

  • In either case, this is the course for you! It has been carefully designed to help ANY expectant couple be set up for success, BEFORE the baby arrives!

Most of us imagine that having a baby will bring us closer to our partner...

Let me tell you what your friends and family won't:

A new baby can shake the foundation of even the strongest, most connected relationships.

Hi! I'm Ruth!

From our happy soon-to-be parents:

A Stronger Team!

Jess, Vancouver, Canada

I am so glad that my husband and I took this course before our baby arrived! The modules provided us with valuable insights into postpartum life, and the exercises led to many important conversations. Having finished the course together, I feel like we are going into parenthood as a stronger team. Thank you!

Thank you!

Nicole, L.A.

"Taking Ruth's course with my partner before welcoming our first baby into our family gave us a lot more confidence that we can take on this challenge together! She provided us with both the knowledge to recognize issues as they come up and with multiple tools to reach solutions together more effectively. Thank you, Ruth, for setting up my partner and I for success with our new baby!!"

We feel so much closer now!

Jenn, Coquitlam, Canada

"I truly feel that I have the strategies I needed to make my relationship even better. Although I know having a baby is going to be a challenge, now we've talked through many of the uncertainties... we feel so much closer now, and can't wait for the next chapter as a family."
