An evidence-based site for parents
BabyFacts is the ultimate online resource for everything you need to know about conceiving, pregnancy and babies.
We reject myths, scaremongering, and rumors that spread easily online. Our articles are evidence-based and backed by science.
We don’t forget the fun side, either, with plenty of practical, real-life tips from parents who have already been there, done that.
Our Process and Editorial Standards
Our editorial policy is:
- Provide quality information with links to reliable, impartial medical professionals, scientific papers, and government publications.
- Include clear, “real life” information rather than vague general advice
- Build upon existing advice given to parents, particularly new parents
- Eradicate false information (“fake news”), and provide accurate answers supported by reputable research
- Continually review and update content in response to the latest news and research findings
