New Arrivals – Bringing Baby Home

For people about to welcome a new baby into their family

Even the strongest relationships are strained during the transition to parenthood.

67% of new parents experience conflict, disappointment and hurt feelings through:

  • Lack of sleep
  • Never-ending housework
  • New money worries.

This can affect baby’s care.


Bringing Baby Home Workshops

Doley Psychology Services’ Bringing Baby Home workshop is for parents who are:

  • About to bring home their first child, or
  • Bringing home a new baby to meet a sister or brother.

In our Bringing Baby Home workshop, held on the Gold Coast, Dr Rebekah Doley bases her approach on John Gottman’s research with new parents.

It prepares couples for life with baby and helps them be the best parenting team possible.

In a relaxed and supportive environment, Rebekah helps parents learn to:

  • Strengthen their relationship
  • Foster baby’s development
  • Build on the quality of friendship in the marriage/partnership.
