"You cannot sit back and hope to have a happy marriage. You have to create one." --Unknown Having a baby is one of the most beautiful experiences in the world. However, it can create considerable stress and strain on a marriage. A woman's hormones usually go wacko. Baby keeps everyone awake and on edge, and dads have extra demands and pressures which are often minimized. Sexual expression may be non-existent for some time, and communication can decline drastically. Unfortunately, many couples lose their connection, at least for a while. Certainly, there is no more important time for couples to be strongly committed to one another than during these stressful periods of having a baby and rearing a family. Keeping Romance Alive After Children Arrive was written to help partners maintain a strong and loving relationship during pregnancy, after the baby comes, and well into the future. The book provides an abundance of valuable information, skills, tools, and strategies to help couples remain close, intimate, romantic, and sexual during and after this challenging period. Toni Erickson, MSW, LCSW, has been a psychotherapist for over 30 years, as well as a relationship coach, mediator, and educator. She is the mother of four grown children with growing families of their own. She has a private practice as a coach and psychotherapist and lives with her husband in Boulder, Colorado. Her desire is to help parents have loving relationships with respect, integrity, openness, compromise, and good communication, so they can create happy and enduring families.
