You must register in advance to attend!
For most couples, marital satisfaction decreases substantially after children. Between sleepless nights, temper tantrums, strained finances, battles over homework, and soccer practices, it’s easy to understand how a couple’s relationship takes a back seat. Before long, you may think of your partner primarily as a co-parent. Fundamental identities may change: from wife to mother; husband to father; from best friends and partners to parents. This workshop gives parents and expectant parents tools to navigate their relationship with their partners post-parenthood or during the transition to parenthood, as a stable relationship can significantly improve your child’s or children’s development. All are welcome: please feel free to come by yourself or with your partner.
David Fask, Ph.D., a licensed clinical psychologist, will facilitate this workshop. He specializes in dealing with stress and anxiety along with helping parents enhance intimacy in their relationship while raising children.
“Having delivered twice at The Birth Center at LWC, I couldn’t be happier with my experiences. I felt so cared for and safe there. Welcoming, comforting, trustworthy—the combination of the homey feel I wanted with professional, experienced midwives and nurses let me relax, knowing I was in good hands. The midwives, always there when we needed them, also seemed to know just when to give us space. When pushing became difficult during my second birth, the midwife quickly assessed the situation and helped me get things back on track. I can’t imagine birthing anywhere else.”
