As an expecting or new parent, you have a trusted resource to guide you through pregnancy, labor and delivery, and the first three years of your baby's life: Babe-news and Toddler-News, Edward Hospital's weekly parenting e-mail.
This free service includes customized information, news, and resources – as well as announcements from our parent education staff, access to hospital classes, and tour information – all delivered to your in-box.
Plus, it's all free! View a sample e-mail. This service is powered by The Parent Review.
When you register for Babe-news, you'll receive information tailored to your week of pregnancy and then the age of your newborn, plus the following:
- Support, tips and advice
- Research findings that impact your child's development
- Tips on hospital and other resources that can help (classes, tours, support groups, etc.)
- Your baby's developmental milestones
- Nursing Know-How, which includes helpful tips for getting started and sticking with nursing. It also gives you access to The Breastfeeding Journal, web-based, timely information designed to help you continue nursing. Nursing Know-How arrives weekly, from week 36 of your pregnancy through week 5 of your baby's life, then monthly through the first year.
How it works
Babe-news is offered to you weekly from week 7 of your pregnancy through the first three years of your baby's life. (Nursing Know-How starts week 36, if you elect to receive it). Babe-news will automatically expire on your baby's third birthday. You may cancel your subscription for the pregnancy, Nursing Know-How, Infancy or Toddler weekly e-mails at any time by notifying us by e-mail, or simply click "unsubscribe" which is located at the bottom of each issue.
