How Our Review Board Process Works

Every article our expert writers create with verifiable facts or medical information goes through our thorough Review Board process. We assign each piece to a specialist based on their expertise. Even our custom illustrations get checked by the Review Board.

The Babies Parent Review Board members ensure each piece they review is current, complete, and trustworthy. They check that it contains the latest facts and health guidelines, along with practical advice for parents.

If the Review Board suggests changes, our editors make the needed updates. Once approved, the content gets a Review Board stamp in the byline, showing who reviewed it and when.
