Little Elf Family Services' mission is to help families to thrive through the transition to parenthood and beyond.  We provide support to pregnant and new parents 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.  

Bringing Baby Home has been proven to improve baby's development and to help new parents to be the best parents they can be.

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. 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.

Thanks so much for taking your time and sharing your knowledge with us in need! We feel [that the Bringing Baby Home class] was a great experience and will recommend it to new parents we meet in life in the future. Thank you for caring about people and wanting to share your experiences in helping others around you. It’s easy to see that you have a wonderful soul and are extremely successful at making those around you feel loved, warm, and safe. That’s an amazing quality to have, and I would like to acknowledge you.

What I loved about the class was that there was a diverse range of people, from thinking about having a baby, to being prego, to having a toddler. Because we are on the other side of the fence, it was great to share our stories and thoughts with the group in hopes that if it happens to them, they know they aren’t alone. [My husband] and I took away a few things from class we are already using and when we do feel flooded, we are going to take out the book and review the steps. We haven’t had conflict yet, but I will keep you posted as to when we do! We have been doing 6-second kisses and practicing using the vocabulary so far.
