A new kind of life
There are perhaps few things in life that are simultaneously as wonderful and terrifying as the impending arrival of a child.
Children come in many ways, an unexpected surprise, the result of years of waiting, IVF, adoption.
And every child is different and the bonds we form (or fail to form) will impact us all in different ways.
Unfortunately a common casualty of the parenting relationship is the couples relationship bond. Sleep deprivation, differing parenting styles, financial challenges and lifestyle changes can all conspire to erode the love and intimacy connection between couples. These factors conspire to lead to a divorce spike around the time children are 3-5 years of age.
However despite the uncertainty there are now literally decades of good quality research about how to connect well with baby but more importantly to maintain and strengthen the parenting and couple connection. In this area it is truly possible to have your cake and eat it.
This is an area close to the heart of most of our team - we love babies and it is a particular focus for Gael - you can check out her profile here. To book a session with one of our counsellors for antenatel coaching you cna use the online booking tool on the left.
