Parenthood is both the biggest challenge - and most rewarding adventure - parents will ever experience.
It’s so much more than the most important job in the world. It’s life changing. World changing. And there’s nobody to guide parents through the journey.
Or is there?
Meeting the Need and Filling the Gaps
Do you know, either personally or professionally, that new parents, babies and families deserve more support?
Do you wish you could give more and help them more than you already do?
Do you wish you had more resources, tools and support to help fill those gaps and make an even greater difference?
You’re not alone. And the good news is that you can!
There are so many barriers to preparing parents well for parenthood - have you noticed them? There’s gaps in services, broken medical systems, a hyper-focus on birth and let’s just skip over everything that comes afterwards. There’s not enough funding or time allocated for this vital information in prenatal classes. This all means that it’s nobody’s role in our world today to prepare parents for the biggest life change they’re ever likely to experience.
This also means that any professional that parents meet on their parenthood journey instantly becomes a Very Important Person in their world. You have the potential to make a huge, meaningful and lasting difference for parents. So none of these barriers have to stop parents getting the preparation and support they both need and deserve.
