During pregnancy and as a parent, it’s vital that you can get information that you can trust and rely on.
Rockinbaby is created by parents and for parents, and our mission is to provide you with trusted information to help guide you during every step of your pregnancy and parenting journey
For this reason we take quality standards extremely seriously.
Here’s a little more information about the high standards we set ourselves.
Our articles are written by Nick and Tori Carlaw, two parents who have experience, expertise and first-hand knowledge in many pregnancy and child-related topics.
We use our knowledge, expertise and real-world experience to ensure that the articles you read on Rockinbaby are accurate and can be trusted, and therefore meets our own strict editorial standards.
Where we feel that we don’t have the required experience or expertise to answer a topic or question as well as we would like, we make sure that we speak to experts who do have this knowledge.
Because as parents ourselves we wouldn’t expect anything less if we were in your shoes.
That’s the reason we use guest authors and frequently interview subject-matter experts including nurses, midwives, doctors, nutritionists, lactation experts and teachers, so we can gather trust-worthy information and answers on topics we are not 100% familiar with.
As the responsible founders of Rockinbaby, Nick and Tori Carlaw believe their duty is to make sure that each piece of content on this website is accurate, responsible, easy to understand, helpful and up-to-date before it is published.
