Research showed that couples who attending a couples support workshop had the following results:
Couples studied who did attend the BBH workshop*

- Only 22.5% of mothers had symptoms of post-partum depression
- When partners played with their child together, dad’s were more cooperative and less competitive with their partner.
- Dad’s were significantly more positive and had more fun with their babies
- Babies were significantly more tuned in to their parents
- Babies had much more intense positive emotions and fewer intense negative emotions
- Babies learned language sooner
- Babies were on the right course of emotional development
Couples studied who did NOT attend the BBH workshop*
- Relationship quality between parents deteriorated significantly and steadily over a 3-year period. Hostility increased dramatically
- More than 66% of mothers had symptoms of post-partum depression
- When partners played with their child together, dad’s were less cooperative and more competitive with their partner.
- Dad’s were less positive and had less fun with their babies
- Babies were less tuned in to their parents
- Babies raised by unhappy parents suffered developmentally. They lagged behind the babies of contented parents both intellectually and emotionally.
- Speech occurred later, potty training was delayed, and the ability to self-soothe was slow in coming and these children would lag behind for years to come.
