The Post Baby Conversation is a first: a relationship book for new parents. It is not a book about babies and it's not about how to be a parent. It's about how to be a happy couple after the arrival of children.
- Has your relationship changed since you had a baby?
- Do you ever get to talk or spend time as a couple?
- Do you feel understood?
- Do you feel angry, frustrated or resentful?
- Do you have less sex?
When a modern couple become parents, both men and women develop expectations of what their partner should do and provide, often based on outdated traditional stereotypes; and many couples co-exist unhappily for years.
Find out how other couples feel post-baby. Learn how to create equality, understanding and fulfilment in your post-baby relationship. 'What we can do' sections will help you design something new that suits you both and provides a happy, nurturing environment for your family.
