Working to give every child the best start in life

We  empower parents with the knowledge and confidence to look after their own health and their children's long term development and well-being.

Baby Buddy app

The free multi-award winning app for parents and parents-to-be endorsed by the Department of Health and other leading health organisations in the UK.

Bespoke services and workshops

The process of 'embedding' Baby Buddy resources involves training professional and community champions to support and reach parents of all backgrounds. Read more about the different training workshops we provide.



The Parent Panel

We take collaboration seriously. Before our resources become available to the public, our Parent Panel members assess, analyse and approve them.


Author: Katherine Meehan


Families We have reached more than 3 million families across the UK.


Professionals We have trained and supported over 1,200 professionals to use our resources with the families they support.


Localities We have successfully integrated Baby Buddy into 27 localities of maternity care pathways across the UK.
