Our story as parents started the way most parents do. Full of excitement, dread of labour and sleepless nights. We were both experienced doctors by this time but medical school and no other classes we attended quite prepared us for being parents…
The parent club is here to be a place for knowledge and support through those early weeks and months. We promise our advice will be impartial and scientific. We are not owned or sponsored by any nappy company or formula brand so you know you can trust us to give you honest answers. Most importantly we know how tough it is and there will definitely be no guilt trips. You are doing an amazing job and we want to support you and make sure you enjoy it too!
We have put together all the essential information you need to enjoy your first year in the parent club. We know life is busy and it is hard to remember everything you read to so we created how to videos and easy to follow course, it's all their literally in the palm of your hand (or iphone!) when you need us, even in the small hours of the night.
It's a team sport,
and we are on your side.
