When Baby Makes Three
October 21, 2022
Hosted by Arleen Maiorano, LCSW-R, LP
In this episode, my guest Kelly Intriligator and I talk about the impact of a child on an existing romantic and dyadic relationship, where the partners were once free to focus only on each other. The birth of a child is a source of great joy, but also enormous stress, and we will discuss ways we can both multiply the joy, and mitigate the stress.

I am a couples therapist and believe deeply in the healing power of relationships. I believe that we repeat our childhood trauma with the person we connect to and love, and that if we learn to manage our reactions differently, we can begin to heal that trauma. To do this, we have to hear our partner's side, instead of instinctively defending ourselves and fighting for our side. Of course, this has to go both ways, and we then heal when we mutually experience the generosity of the other.
