We are one of the world’s leading online resources for expert-led, evidence-based parental advice. All our baby care advice is supported by the Royal College of Paediatricians and Child Health and follows expert advice from the UNICEF UK Baby Friendly Initiative.
The Essential Parent library includes information on:
- Conception and fertility
- Pregnancy and birth information
- Baby care 0-1
- Toddler care 1-3
- Child care 3-12
- Teen care 13-19
eCare is Essential Parent’s a digital tech delivery system from our library of information made for parents, running from conception all the way to the teenage years. Health professionals can select and deliver tailored content to parents after their appointments.
As a parent you will receive bespoke bundles of content via email or text and you will register an account, so you can have access to all the information you have been sent.
Parents who have attended or missed appointments about their pregnancy or child will be sent a bundle of information and guidance to compliment the appointment and provide extra information that you can explore in your own time.
Your health team will send you a link to your information and eCare will ask you to register with a username and password so that you can access the information you have been sent and browse the digital library. If you add your mobile number to your account, you will be able to receive information from your health team via text (SMS).
If you already have an account you can ask for a password reset by emailing at Essential Parent direct – firstname.lastname@example.org for more help.
