Marriage Counseling for New ParentsReconnecting Couples After Baby
If only you knew how right they were when they said children change everything.
You and your partner have had a hard time adjusting to parenthood. Because both of you seem to have had different expectations on what this new chapter in your life would be like. When your expectations weren’t met, your relationship went downhill. You’re tired, drained, and feel unappreciated.
How do you switch from being a parent to being a partner again? You’ve been told to “put your marriage first.” But, what does that even mean? There are not enough hours in the day to children and your spouse attention.
And your partner doesn’t seem all that motivated to help. You’ve asked them again and again, but all you get in return is their frustration. They complain and argue almost every time, so… you stop asking.
You had no idea you could be married and a single parent at the same time…
Sure, you long for connection with your partner, but more than anything right now you want some help. Taking care of a newborn is a full-time job. And it’d be nice to hear a “thank you” every now and again.
The two of you seem to be drifting further and further apart.
The truth is that both of you could probably give your relationship a bit more attention. But no one ever really taught you how to be married, and they certainly didn’t cover how to be married with children.
Think back to your wedding vows when you agreed to love your partner for better or worse, in sickness or health. Nothing. Absolutely nothing about becoming parents together.
No promise about little kids sucking the energy out of you and draining your bank account.
Having children changes everything, but it doesn’t have to destroy your relationship.
You want to fall back in love with your partner and be an awesome parent. Counseling for new parents can help.
The good news is you don’t have to wait until your kids are in college to have a great marriage again. You’re searching for a way to rebuild the bond that you once had with your partner. You want to look forward to seeing each other at the end of the day and enjoy the time spent as a family.
It’s possible to once again feel united as a team. You can face the challenge of parenthood together and enjoying the amazing moments of connection with your children. You don’t have to choose between your children and your spouse, you can enjoy both your kids and your partner!
Imagine what it would feel like to have a partner again and work together to rock this parenting thing.
You don’t have to be afraid to ask for help or spend any more time feeling resentful toward your partner.
It’s possible to feel connected, loved, and appreciated again.
Counseling for new parents can help. Let me show you how to love your children and your spouse again.
It’s important new parents start counseling right away. There’s no time to waste.
You blink, and your newborn is a toddler. And by then partner seems miles away.
I can help you and your partner get back to the basics of your relationship. I’ll show you how to make time for yourself and each other. I will help you learn to make your marriage a priority again.
No, I can’t add more hours to the day. It’s about making better use of the time that you have.
When it comes to parenting, teamwork really does make the dream work. It’s cheesy. I know. In therapy, we’ll come up with a plan that includes how to take care of your marriage as well as your children. We will address all the problems you’ve been experiencing as new parents during our counseling sessions. You will learn new ways to cope with the frustrations that accompany navigating your new life with a new baby.
Remember, having a great marriage is one of the best things you can do for your children and their future. Together, with counseling, you can reconnect with your spouse, learn new tools to help you work as a team, and build a solid foundation for your relationship to thrive.
Your children learn from you. Show them that happy endings aren’t just for fairy tales.
