Mothers and Mothers-to-be: Invitation to participate in Baby Buddy Forward

November 7, 2018 @ 9:30 am - December 4, 2018 @ 8:00 pm

We are co-creating Baby Buddy Cyprus, an open-access online educational platform with informational and audiovisual material covering “the journey of the transition to parenthood” – from early pregnancy to the first 6 months of the baby’s life.
We want Baby Buddy to address the real needs and expectations of pregnant women and their partners. We are organising a series of meetings as we want to hear your views and experiences on the topic of information and informational support in pregnancy.
Join us and share your experiences with other mothers and mothers-to-be. Let’s discuss:
  • The opportunities in accessing valid and timely information
  • Your expectations, your preferences, and any challenges you might have experienced
  • The importance of information in informed decision-making
  • Your suggestions to other parents who begin their own journey to parenthood
Meetings will be organised in during November. REGISTRATION ONLY Schedule:
