Is this couples therapy?

No, the Bringing Baby Home Program is an educational workshop. 

Is this a birthing class or Lamaze?

No, the Bringing Baby Home Program does not prepare couples for the experience of childbirth. It focuses on the couple's relationship, preparing for the transition to parenthood, and understanding baby's needs.

We realize life is hectic and things can come up. If you are unable to attend Day 2, we invite you to attend Day 2 at a future workshop we offer at no additional charge.

How does payment work?

We offer two payment options: pay in full after registration or select our payment plan. The payment plan allows you to make one payment after registration and the second payment one week before the workshop. After registering, you will receive an invoice via email that you can pay online using a credit or debit card.

Yes! Babies in arms are welcome. We'd love to invite toddlers and older children as well, but are currently unable to.
