About Us

How It All Started

ParentMD was founded to improve the quality of information available to parents online, while promoting healthy relationships with pediatricians.

We’ve seen the struggle parents face, trying to find reliable health information outside of their pediatrician visit. We’re here to guide families through the many challenges kids and parents face from newborn to adult. ParentMD provides a better option to the often inconsistent and misleading child health information on the web.

Pediatrician Led.

Our contributors are board-certified pediatricians and clinical experts that help us stay close to the needs of children today and the latest research to share with our families.

Parent Guided.

It's our goal to serve parents where, when and how they need it. Our Parent Advisory Council helps guide future content ideas and services by asking questions and being honest about their needs right now as a parent.
Mission
To empower and support parents to raise healthy children
Vision
To be the most sought after parent resource for optimizing children's health.
Values
Trust, Family, Compassion, Expertise
