I always tell my clients, "You'll never love or hate your partner as much as you will after you have a baby." Emotions are high. Sleep is low. It's a big change. So what goes wrong and what can we do to be good parents AND good partners? Whether or not you're actually married, relationship coach Janna Denton-Howes walks us through some of the traps that can befall new parents, and strategies to stay connected during those stressful first years of parenthood.
