Counseling for New Parents
Every Child Deserves Happy Parents

 

You want the best for your child- it’s why you’ve read so many books and articles, chatted with your friends and family members. You have slaved over every decision: cloth or disposable, breastfed or formula, co-sleep or sleep train… The list goes on.

You want your new baby to have the absolute best start in life. At Mindful Life Counseling, we believe that having two loving parents who love each other above all else is the ultimate gift you can give your child.

Whether you’re crunchy or silky (and God bless you if you don’t know what that means), the relationship you have with your partner is the foundation upon which all your family’s hopes and dreams are built.

Being a new parent isn’t easy, and it’s not unusual to feel as though the two of you are drifting apart. You may have begun to feel more like roommates than lovers.

The hostility and resentment continue to grow, and you’re tired of playing the midnight game of chicken- seeing who can pretend to be asleep long enough so that the other one gets the baby…

When you ask for help, it ends in an argument.

You both feel exhausted and unappreciated.

The new baby has become the center of your entire existence, and your relationship with your partner has been put on the back burner. Between the sleep deprivation and constant demands on your time and energy, it’s no wonder research has proven that 2/3 of couples experience a significant decline in relationship satisfaction in the first three years after a baby is born.

With all the demands a new baby brings, who has time for one another? You don’t even have time for yourself! You feel like you’re an ocean apart, swept up in the current of parenthood.

Sometimes, you feel like you’re drowning.

You don’t feel like anyone will understand.

Luckily, I do understand, and I want to help you and your partner have the best relationship in the world.

I want the two of you to know that you have each other’s backs no matter what the world (or your child) throws at you. Only then can you be certain that you are doing what’s best for your child.

Being a new mom or dad is tough. Without proper help and support, it can feel impossible.

Being a New Parent is Tough. It Doesn’t Have to be Painful.
