Tips and Tools for an Extraordinary Relationship

The best time to protect your relationship from the stress of becoming parents is BEFORE the children come. That's why pregnancy is the PERFECT time for a relationship check-up!

You see, the stress of having a newborn has a way of putting your relationship under a microscope, so that even minor imperfections become life size.

That's why it's important to take a close look at your relationship prior to babies' arrival. By learning new skills, enhancing your strengths, and building on your areas in need of attention- becoming a family can remain a joyous occasion!

Co-Parenting Relationship Health Inventory

For every couple serious about making their love last! By taking a close look at your relationship- you'll learn how to build on your strengths and identify areas in need of improvement in order to bullet proof your love. In addition, you'll examine your beliefs about being parents and your expectations about the roles of mother and father to ensure that your transition to parents is as smooth as possible.

Based on John Gottman's leading martial research about what makes for successful marriages and his studies on happy families- this assessment will take a look at the five levels of your relationship to determine if the foundations of your partnership are built rock solid, or if they need a little work. When your foundations are secure- you can build a lifetime of love.

The Inventory will also examine some of your family history and beliefs to illuminate parenting patterns that you wish to continue and habits you'll want to transform.

With knowledge about the state of your current union and clarity about your parenting roles, you'll have all the tools you'll need to create the love you deserve. Plus, you'll have a road map to strengthening your partnership which will help you avoid the potholes and detours commonly experienced by new parents.

How It Works: The Inventory will be emailed to you as a PDF file and you and your partner should print out a copy and fill it out- separately. To get the most accurate results, do not discuss your answers during or after the Inventory. Then mail your Inventories back to me and we'll set up a 1.5 hour feedback session, either in person or over the phone.
