Defining the Problem



“almost 70 percent of couples experience a decrease in marital satisfaction during the first year of baby’s life.” (todaysparent.com).

Raising a child is a very unique experience and it is difficult to jump to conclusions. I have been witnessing this experience in the first place because I recently had a niece.
It's easy to see how parents struggle with a lot of new experiences. Most of the apps are focusing on baby tracking, there is a lack of parents - focused app.




How might we create a platform where new parents support each other and find the correct product easily?
