Having a baby can be one of the most stressful times in your life. It’s normal to sometimes feel overwhelmed, vulnerable and guilty. And, as parents of little ones ourselves, we know how hard it can be to find help.
So six months ago, we started asking what we could do to help.
And that’s how we came up with Peppy.
Peppy is a platform that provides a range of postnatal support services for new parents. Like breastfeeding coaches, baby sleep coaches, postnatal therapists and physios for mums. They’re all things that make the life of a new parent much easier.
The best thing is that it’s all subsidised by your employer. So you can get access to accredited practitioners at a reduced rate — or sometimes, depending on your employer, for free.
The journey so far
We’ve been speaking to all sorts of people — CEOs, practitioners, HR executives, health professionals and parents — to find out what they think. And, without wishing to blow our own trumpet, people seem to be pretty excited.
We’re in advanced talks with Fortune 500 companies about rolling out Peppy in their workplace. We’ve attracted a stellar board made up of professors and industry experts. And we’re starting to pull together the most trusted practitioners working in the UK.
Taking Peppy to the masses
Peppy could be a game-changer. We all know someone who has children, or who’s thinking of having them. So it’s vital that we give them the support they need when the time comes — which is exactly what Peppy does.
All you need to do is take a couple of minutes to refer your employer at www.peppy.health, and ask your friends to do the same. We’ll take it from there.
Thanks for reading. We’re excited to have you on the adventure with us.
