#102: Reconnecting With Your Partner And Finding Purpose After Baby with Catherine O'Brien

March 24, 2022

 

 

Welcome back to the New Mom Boss Podcast! 

 

Preparing your relationship before a new baby arrives is essential for couples, and yet it’s one of the things that most first-time parents don’t even think about while they’re expecting. 

 

In this episode, Catherine O’Brien shares with us her best tips for couples on how they can strengthen their relationship before, during, and after bringing their baby home.

 

Catherine is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and the founder of Happy With Baby, which she created in order for new parents to discover the advice she wishes she could have had as a parent.

 

Together, we discuss her background in starting Happy With Baby, how couples can work to reconnect with each other, as well as what it means for new moms to find their lost sense of self postpartum. There are also some bonus topics that came up along the way that I definitely want you to hear!



 Some big takeaways are:

  1. It’s not a competition; it’s about partnering together to support one another. 
  2. Before baby, talk about what you want; after baby, talk about what you need.
  3. Find what works for your family, but don’t forget to remain flexible!



I loved this conversation! We touch on some things that aren’t being talked about enough and so I’m super grateful to Catherine for keeping the discussion going and the work that she’s doing to educate others. Take a listen!

 

Before you go, I have a quick question! Are you looking for extra support during your pregnancy journey? If so, consider signing up for a New Mom Assessment!

 

This is a 1-hour call where you and I work together to take a closer look at where you’re at with baby planning, assess your S5 Pillars, create an action plan for you moving forward, and even do a baby registry audit. I’d love to walk through this information with you and be a part of your support team!
