What you’ll learn: 

  • Basic couples activities such as going out to dinner, the movies or even watching TV together become a lot more difficult in the first few weeks (or years!) of parenthood
  • It is important to book in some time with each other
  • It can be hard for some mum’s to ‘let go’ for a night, or even an hour – that’s normal.
  • Working as a team can be difficult when you’re both tired and stressed but it is really important for baby as well as you
  • The relationship can take a back-seat to the baby which may put a strain on both parents – communication is the key
