CAST 058 Keeping A Relationship Strong After Baby Arrives
This week we have one of the very highest downloaded episodes of Mum’s The Word for #2 of “The Best of” series. I have had so much positive feedback from couples about this episode that I absolutely without doubt have to share it again.
Julie Sharon from Balance You shares with us her wisdom about a very important topic that affects almost everyone and is also so very rarely spoken of. How does the relationship change between a couple once their baby arrive?
Listen in and you’ll learn that we all have similar worries, challenges, and experiences as new parents. Knowing what to do beforehand and then if and when things happen is really the key though.
