About Pregged

The Pregged Manifesto

1. We believe all pregnant moms deserve no BS reliable, up-to-date and evidence-based information.

All of our pregnancy information is reviewed for accuracy by fully-qualified and experienced medical professionals so that you can be reassured our information is trustworthy. Our review team includes an Obstetrician-Gynecologist, an Emergency Room MD, a Psychologist and a Pharmacist.

2. We want all moms-to-be to feel safe, cared for and supported as they navigate the challenges of pregnancy.

We know what a worrying time pregnancy can be, especially if you’re in the 1 in 4 women who enter pregnancy with a mental health condition, or in the 1 in 8 women who develop a mental health problem during pregnancy.

Our community of pregnant moms will be there for you and listen without judgement. We build each other up and help each other through all aspects of pregnancy – the pretty, beautiful parts and the challenging, freaky and worrying parts.

We actively seek out and remove unkind or rude people to keep things safe and supportive.

3. We want to calm you, reassure you and guide you through an (almost) fearless and anxiety-free pregnancy.

It’s probably a little unrealistic to have a completely anxiety-free pregnancy, but with the right information and support we can do a lot to calm those fears and prepare for labor and birth. 

Getting into the right mindset is a big part of a happy and relaxed pregnancy. That’s why we talk about the topics of birth preparation and mental health a lot on Pregged. 

4. We believe all women are strong and capable and we will remind you of that as often as possible.

We have no say in which pregnancy symptoms you might experience, but we can help you deal with them. 

It may not always feel like it, but you have what it takes to get through pregnancy, labor and birth.

You were born for this!
