Becoming a new parent is one of the hardest tasks a couple will face.

  • Feeling disconnected or arguing with your partner?

  • Feeling overwhelmed, or not yourself?

  • Is this not what you imagined having a baby would be like?

  • Are you even questioning the relationship itself?

"This course was exactly what we needed... even though we were happily married before, having a baby really threw us off course. Sadly, I think we were both feeling pretty desparate and disconnected, in addition to feeling so tired, stressed, and on my own. I had no idea where to start - - this course gave me a map to reclaim the happiness in my marriage."

Most of us imagine that having a baby will bring us closer together...

but the truth is, a new baby can shake the foundation of even the most connected relationships.

Read on to learn if this course is for you:

  • "I love the sounds of this course, but how long can I expect this to take?"

    Most students finish the course within about 3-5 hours, including all video lessons and exercises.

  • "I know that we need help, but I'm so tired and not sure about signing up.!

    I know you are tired. I remember exactly what that was like, so rest assured, I've designed this to be the SHORTCUT - the most important info that you NEED to know. You can start and stop as much as you need to, and gradually integrate the material into your relationship.

  • "I'm a busy mom - could I take this course while breastfeeding or pushing the stroller?"

    YES! Absolutely. Although the lessons are videos, they can be easily downloaded onto your device so that you learn on the go. Any exercises you can either save for later or reflect upon in your head.

  • "I think this course could really help us but my husband can't commit to it - is there any point me doing this on my own?"

    You can DEFINITELY still benefit from the course if you do it on your own, and actually that is what most students are doing. That said, many of the exercises will in some shape or form, involve your partner. I always encourage students to share when they can.

  • "How long will I have access to the material?"

    For as long as you need! Many students will plow through the material within a few weeks, but others choose to chip away at it and even revisit the lessons when they need them the most.

  • My husband wants to take it too. Do we have to pay twice?

    No you don't! If your partner wants to sign up, get in touch and I will send you a coupon code for 1 additional FREE course!

  • "What kind of commitment is needed?"

    The course is completely self-paced. So that could mean getting through it in a weekend or taking in only 10 minutes a day. For best results, I usually suggest that you set some time aside at least once/week to work through the course and build on what you are learning.
