Feedback from Real Parents

“Often couples get so focused on how to decorate the nursery, what the name should be, etc., that they forgot to talk though these important things. As a couple, we have felt that these videos and workbooks have helped us to focus and discuss things that will come up in the future.”

—Monica, first time mother

“My wife and I agree that the sessions have been a positive influence in our relationship and are helpful in preparing us to be a family of three.”
