this is relationship truths.

It’s only natural that the relationship with your partner changes when you become parents but it’s rarely spoken about. That’s why we asked real parents around the world what it meant for them.

this is relationship truths.

“It helped us with communication.”

Having a baby will change your relationship. Not just with your partner but with friends and family too. The saying is true, it really does take a village to raise a baby.

At the heart of this is good communication – and being able to have an open, honest conversation with your partner and the people around you will help you, especially in the first year.

If you’d like to share your experience of how parenthood has changed your relationships or how you manage as a couple, we’d love to hear from you. Simply share your story using #thisisrelationships and #thisisparenthood on social.
