Our Story

Parents are born here.

From the moment their child arrives, parents are raised in the healthcare environment. Science tells us that a new parent’s brain is primed, motivated, and open to change. And with 99% of children born in hospitals each year, 14 primary care visits from birth to age five, and countless sick visits along the way, there is a tremendous opportunity to reach families in their earliest moments.

Part of
Physical Health

Years of research now demonstrate that social-emotional-cognitive health is dramatically linked to physical health. Positive parenting behaviors and strong parent-child relationships can provide children with a lifetime of enhanced protection from health challenges such as asthma, obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.
