The New Baby

Episode 8 – What happens to a marriage when the new baby enters the picture?  While there is nothing better than welcoming a newborn into the world, for many couples, it is a major life transition. Unfortunately, a new baby can also mean the end of a marriage for some.

In this episode of Divorce Exposed, I’m talking with Liz Kauffmann who works with couples when they bring home the new baby, addressing issues that can ultimately save a marriage.

I met Liz through a speaking program that I am a part of and knew right away that I wanted her to be part of the Divorce Exposed podcast and share her wisdom.  I truly believe what she is doing adds so much value to a couple and we talk about some of the issues that people don’t even think about when they have children.  If you are aware of these issues and you can work through them, you can survive the infant stage in your marriage with a lot less tension and create the life you want with your family rather than hitting your head against the wall not understanding what is happening.

Unfortunately there is a lot of background noise in this episode because we recorded in a busy Starbucks on a Saturday morning in SOHO.  While the noise might be distracting, the content and the conversation are definitely worth listening to. Especially for those that have a new baby in the house or someone expecting.


  • Allowing yourself time to adjust to parenting
  • Asking questions
  • Leaning on your support system
  • Getting sleep
  • Communication

It’s important thing for you to remember is that I am not an attorney, a therapist of a financial advisor. If you are going through difficult times and feel you need help, please reach out to someone, either a friend, family member or a professional and get support. I’ve listed some resources on the resources page of the website and encourage you to check there or reach out to your friends and family for referrals. Your life matters and getting help is the best thing you can do for yourself. My guest today is a social worker and brings with her the credentials to be considered a professional.  While her focus is working with new parents, if you have an issue and you can’t find help, I’m sure she would be glad to provide you with the necessary resources to point you in the right direction.

Remember, my goal is to provide you with insights for staying married and inspiration to survive divorce. The topic in this episode is important for someone who is expecting or has a new baby at home and doesn’t feel parenting is going as expected.
