Prepare for Your
There is an endless supply of confusing and outdated information out there in the world from experts (and non-experts!) that can frighten or overwhelm you. Everyone wants to give you the secret sauce to parenting – even random people at Costco and well-meaning strangers on Reddit!
As a new parent, you need a reliable and credible source you can turn to anytime, especially during those 2 am panic spirals. This is when you wish you went to medical school or your best friend was a pediatrician.
Parenting is messy, both physically and metaphorically (just check out any parent’s spit up covered shirt of honor in the baby aisle). But it is also incredibly rewarding. My goal is to help you worry less, and enjoy it more.
Your Trusted Resource
You deserve a proven, trusted source who can help you sort fact from fiction and parent without fear (or guilt).
Make the best decisions for your baby with real-world support in real-time in a judgment-free space.
