Bringing Baby Home

A program for new parents experiencing the transition to parenthood. "Even the strongest relationships are strained during the transition to parenthood. Lack of sleep, never-ending housework and new fiscal concerns can lead to profound stress and a decline in marital satisfaction - all of which affect baby's care. Not surprisingly, 69% of new parents experience conflict, disappointment, and hurt feelings."

The Harvard School of Public Health estimates that obesity accounts for more than 20% of America's healthcare-related expenses, ~$190 billion annually. The cost in lives is equally staggering, ~18% of lives lost each year, according to Columbia University estimates. This is a guide and short animated video to help with obesity treatment and prevention campaigns.
