The project “Baby Buddy Forward”, funded by Erasmus+: Adult Education, is the three-year (September 2017-August 2020) process of creating an online educational resource.
It is a structured formative research process in partnership with local and international academics, health professionals and of course parents themselves, designed to:
- Gain insights into the experiences, expectations and needs of parents-to-be
- Engage in active consultation with health professionals to guide and advice the process
- Co-create relevant content that addresses the true needs with wider reach
The new platform is based on the multi-award winning free app Baby Buddy, created by our partner Best Beginnings and endorsed by the UK Department of Health and all relevant professional associations in the UK, which will be enhanced with new material relevant for Cyprus and potentially for the Greek, Turkish, Russian, Arabic and English speaking populations in Greece, Germany and beyond.
Baby Buddy Forward aims to create multilingual information to guide the transition into parenthood in an easy to understand language, accessible at any point of time convenient to the parents. It uses tailored rich material including audio and video material to connect with the parents.
