It’s a beautiful thing when a couple decides to grow their family and welcome a baby. It’s a wonderful way to watch the love you have for one another blossom into something bigger and even more powerful. However, having a baby can bring out the best in people and sometimes the worst. This is why it’s so important to prepare for this life-changing time in advance so that you both can be on the same page as partners and as parents. But if you’re listening to this episode after you’ve welcomed home your baby, no worries. There are some incredible pieces of relationship advice for us too.
Today’s guest is Catherine O’Brien, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and the founder of Happy With Baby. Catherine created Happy With Baby for expecting and new parents to discover the advice she wishes she could have had when managing expectations of parenthood and relationships. She is sharing her helpful tools parents can use to communicate better and thrive through this transition with us today. Her warm personality and knowledge will leave you feeling better and equipped to be effective caregivers and have a happy marriage.
We are so grateful to have had Catherine on our podcast to talk about this significant transition in relationships. You can find her on Instagram and Facebook @happywithbaby, as well as read her book!
