A week-by-week research course for expectant parents

A google search can turn up all kinds of fascinating and wonderful things, like the image gallery of the Wellcome Collection, a resource for the "insatiably curious" that features, among other things, the photo of Smokey Sue who appears in Week 6 of this pregnancy calendar calendar (she smokes for two!).

But your pregnancy-based searches are also going to turn up a lot of stories that needlessly terrify you about becoming a parent.

At snackdinner, we believe that better researchers make better parents. This doesn’t mean that you need a PhD to be a good parent. Instead, it means that stronger research skills will make you less susceptible to the next parenting scare.

This pregnancy calendar offers weekly research lessons to transform you into a better researcher and calmer parent. Want to get these tips in your inbox? Sign up below.
