Devil’s Thumb Ranch Resort & Spa, Colorado
A Bringing Baby Home Retreat for Expectant Couples

About this Retreat
This Sequoia Couples Retreat is for pregnant or expectant couples looking to take a “babymoon,” to focus on strengthening your relationship and preparing to start a family before baby comes. The retreat will take you through the evidence-based Gottman Bringing Baby Home Program, and includes a two-night stay at the beautiful Devil's Thumb Ranch Resort & Spa, near Winter Park, Colorado.
Bringing Baby Home is an evidence-based program designed to prepare couples for life with baby and helps them be the best parenting team possible. Couples learn to strengthen their relationship and foster baby’s development during this transitional time. They build on what Dr. Gottman and colleagues found is the best predictor of marital adjustment after baby arrives: the quality of friendship in the marriage.
