Play Nourish Thrive: Our Three Main Objectives

Research shows that new parents appreciate (accessible) informational support about the realities of parenthood.(1)✅

Especially when we are asking the question:

‘Is this normal?’ 🤷‍♀️

Whether it be our own adjustment to parenthood (matrescence and patrescence), or sleep, feeding, changes in relationships etc. These questions come up many many times as a new parent.

We have all been told at some point not to go down a google rabbit hole trying to find answers 🐇 However, parents report feeling too vulnerable to open up to health professionals and others, for fear of being judged.(2)

So where does that leave us?

Social media has become a huge source of information and comfort for modern day parents📱 However, not all social media platforms and/or pages within the platforms are made equally.

You see a lot of judgement and all or nothing thinking that can make even the most discerning parent feel like they are failing 🙇‍♀️

But research shows that what might work for one family in one context may not necessarily work for another. And that is ok! 👍

I have consequently thought very carefully about what my objectives are for @playnourishthrive.

In order to create an informational, non-judgemental space, which considers the holistic experience of being a new parent, my objectives are:

💥Use peer-reviewed research to discuss the realities of parenthood, so you know that you are not alone
💥Empower parents to seek out support
💥Provide a selection of high-quality, safe, tried and tested products for new parents and their babies (no gimmicks!!)
