Well, moms and dads, it's been another interesting year!  To honor the work we've done over the past year and to help usher in the new year, this week I thought I'd highlight the most popular blog content we've put out in 2017.  These are the posts you've read and loved the most! 

And there definitely seem to be some running themes here.  (Not that I'm surprised--these are the things that come up with my clients in my private practice too!)  Popular topics include sex and intimacy, ways to make life less stressful, how to encourage and empower dads and partners, and how to deal with some pretty heavy real-world stuff like national tragedy and racism.

So, let's revisit them all now. 

 

In no particular order, these are the Best of the Happy With Baby Blog in 2017:
