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.


Goals of the Retreat

  • Explore ways to keep your relationship strong during the transition

  • Learn about the normal changes that can occur during this time

  • Strengthen your friendship and intimacy as a couple

  • Learn to manage conflict discussions to promote growth and connection

  • Explore and create your values and vision as a couple, parents, and new family

  • Learn about healthy social, emotional, and intellectual development for baby

  • Relax, rejuvenate and have fun together in a beautiful setting
