What is SmartParent?

Congratulations! Having a baby and becoming a new parent is an exciting time with many changes taking place and lots to learn about keeping you, your family and your growing baby healthy.


SmartParent is a Canadian parenting support program that provides trustworthy educational text messages to help guide parents during their baby’s first year of life. Our information is current, evidence-based and has been developed by maternal and child health experts. We will suggest topics to discuss with your health care provider and provide recommendations for more information and resources available online and in your own community.

Parenthood is a journey; SmartParent is here to coach you through it.
