Jane BarryIf you’re looking for pregnancy, baby or child related information then you’ve come to the right place.

If you are a business needing parenting specific copywriting or consultancy services then you’ve also landed in the correct place (see writing services for more information).

I could bore you all with lots of specifics about my qualifications and training. But honestly, I don’t expect you to be that interested, other than feeling 100% confident that I know what I’m talking about.

But just to let you know, I am fully qualified and experienced as a general nurse; midwife and child health nurse as well as being a specialist parenting writer.  Feel free to check my Official Bio if you want more specifics.

Importantly, I’m a parent myself. This combination of qualifications and personal experience puts me in the great position of knowing firsthand what parents want and need to know about themselves and their children.

The information you’ll find on this website is trustworthy, evidence based, up to date and genuine. It’s also for every parent, no matter how many children you have or how old they are.
