BCAPOP Speaker Series:

February 27, 2023 | 11am - 12pm PT | virtual

SmartParent is a Canadian parenting support program that sends up to 3 current, evidence-based educational text messages per week to help guide new parents through each week of their baby's first year of life. Messages are tailored to infant age and stage of development, have been developed by maternal and child health experts, and include links to trustworthy online resources. The messages also suggest topics for parents to discuss with healthcare providers and link them to resources and services available online and in their own community. Parents learn about SmartParent through routine well-child visits, their regional health authority, local family resource programs, posters in the community, and social media.

The overall goal of the SmartParent program is to support new parents in their transition to parenthood and improve parent and infant health. Messages are meant to complement information provided by healthcare providers, not to replace it.
