Do you have questions about Bringing Baby Home or Little Elf Family Services? Come join us on Saturday, January 21 at the Bay Area Parent S.T.E.A.M. Fair!
Little Elf Family Services' mission is to help families to thrive through the transition to parenthood and beyond. We provide support through classes such as Bringing Baby Home. After baby is born, "What's Baby Saying" provides an opportunity to observe baby together to see what she can tell us about how she needs to be parented.
Even the strongest relationships are strained during the transition to parenthood. Lack of sleep, never-ending housework and new financial concerns can lead to profound stress and a decline in relationship satisfaction – all of which affect baby’s care. Not surprisingly, 67% of new parents experience conflict, disappointment and hurt feelings.
Bringing Baby Home has been proven to teach the skills needed to reduce stress, post-natal depression, relationship conflict, and hostility.
The Gottman Institute's research-based Bringing Baby Home workshops prepares couples for life with baby and helps them be the best parenting team possible. In a relaxed and supportive environment, parents learn to strengthen their relationship and foster baby’s development during this challenging time. They build on what Dr. Gottman and colleagues found is the best predictor of marital adjustment after baby arrives: the quality of friendship in the marriage.
