“I just wanted to tell you what a great site babyworld is, it’s been my rock for 10 years! I joined back in 1998 while I was going through fertility problems. Without this site I do not know how I have coped, and I have also met some really nice people on here. ‘Thankyou’ babyworld for all the forums and for making me feel so welcome, I can’t see myself ever leaving.” Linda Pollock
“I’ve learned tons of parenting techniques, developed my debating skills, made good friends, had someone there when I’ve felt depressed, had tons of crazy Qs answered at all times of the day/night. Most of all I went from being a terrified person looking at two lines of a pregnancy test to an happy excited expectant mum happily chatting away from leg cramps and piles to people I’d not even met before. “ babyworld member Spanner82

Babyworld’s step by step guide during my pregnanices was invaluable and whenever a friend has since become pregnant, I’m been thrilled to recommend the site so that someone else can benefit from such an influential and fun tool! Tanya, owner manager of the Priory Inn, Tetbury
As our “babies” celebrate their 6th birthdays I thought I would justdrop you a line to tell you that the October 2000 antenatal club was one of the best things that happened to me. Six years on there’s a “hard core” of 7 of us who are still in daily contact. We’ve had girlie weekends away together, breaks with our entire families along (I think there were nearly 30 of us counting partners, siblings and our October 2000 babies!) & they are still the people I turn to first for help & advice, when I’m bored at work, or just for a laugh!
We keep joking that we should try to get our emails to each other published (imagine how many there are now after 6.5 years!), as they contain the stories of such an important stage in our lives. Although we rarely use Babyworld these days (for one thing, we don’t really have babies anymore, as the youngest children in the group are nearly 4!), I for one am grateful to Babyworld for introducing me to the warmest, cleverest, funniest bunch of women I know.

Diane, May 2006
I just wanted to say – love your site -its really helpful and its a great source of reassuring information – especially for a first time mum to be!!
Sue, March 2006
Keep up the good stuff on babyworld – its been a vital source of info for me!
Michelle, November 2005
Finally! A web site that tells me exactly what cheeses I can and can’t eat… I’ve been looking for weeks and neither my doctor nor any of my books can give me a straight answer. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Vicky, 11 weeks pregnant, August 2005
Of course you can use the pic of Noah for your homepage! I think it is the very least we can do since I have been on Babyworld pretty much every day since the day I found out I was pregnant with him. It really is a fab site! Many thanks.
Jane and Noah, July 2005
Well if it had not been for the people here I would not have tested to see if I was pregnant, I was in complete denial. The advice from Sue Allen Mills has been most helpful, with me being on the June club and the girls on there r great. I would advise anyone who has problems or worries, or brilliant news, to join babyworld. Basically it has helped me out a lot, through tough and painful times, and it is always nice to have someone to speak to.
Elaine, May 2005
Greeting from Norway! Just found your internet site when I was “surfing”. It’s wonderful to see that the focus on breastfeeding has become important in the UK too!!! And that it is something to be proud of!!! Well done ”babyworld”!!!! I’m married to a Scotsman and I lived in Scotland for seven years, we moved to Norway when we were expecting our first child in 2001. Not once did I ever read or was told about the importance of breastfeeding, this is something I’m brought up with, just as natural as giving birth. Information and support is important for those that want to try breastfeeding – it’s important for a mother also to understand that she’s not a failure if she’s not able to do it. Anyhow, all I wanted to say is it’s great to read about the National Breastfeeding week!!!!!!! PS! I breastfed our daughter until she was 6 months old – it was hard to begin with, but there was nothing wrong with my will to try.
Silje, May 2005
After a miscarriage and problems trying for my third child I found your website very interesting and I had regular contact with two other members. I still keep in contact with one member as we had a lot in common, we exchanged addresses and phone numbers and when we had our third child exchanged baby gifts. Many thanks for your support over the past 3 years.
Sharon, May 2005
Just want to say I’m pregnant with my first child and new to the web. I find your site one of the best around, it’s clearly laid out, so easy to follow and has some great content.
Vicky, April 2005
Firstly, let me say thank you for such a great site. I had a miscarriage 4 weeks ago and I have found tremendous support from the various forums on the site. It has been so helpful to “speak” to other women who have gone through the same experience and know how you are feeling. Secondly, I thought I would let you know that, through your site, I am now back in touch with my best friend from school! I have posted quite a few times on your site and have continued to use my maiden name. My friend Tracey recognised the surname and out of curiosity looked at my pregnancy diary to see if there were any hints as to whether I was who she thought I was! After a couple of days deliberating she posted a message on the forum for my attention. Imagine my surprise when I opened the message. We haven’t seen or spoken to each other in over 17 years!!! We were best friends from the age of 8 to 16 but lost touch when we went to seperate colleges. We’ve exchanged a few emails already but have got loads of news (17 years worth) to catch up on and it’s fantastic to be back in touch with her again. Thank you Babyworld! Once again, congratulations on your excellent site.
Sharon, April 2005
I visit babyworld everyday and even made a really good friend through the site. Thanks again, for a brilliant site which I have found both helpful and fun.
Sarah, March 2005
I have to say this is by far, in my opinion, the best baby site I’ve signed up to for info during pregnancy, chat support and being confident that there are others in the same position with possibly the same dilemas/ questions. I would have missed your site had a customer of mine not mentioned it. I do not recall seeing your details in the bounty packs! I’d also like to see in your newsletter any up to the minute deals by manufacturers for vouchers on nappies, baby food, other products etc. as I am sure you get bombarded by them all the time. Thanks for your weekly updates they have been most useful. Hoping now that I am well informed to conquer labour and bring baby into this world!
Effie, March 2005
This site is an absolute Sanity Saviour! It’s wonderful to be able to chat to other mums and mums to be who are ready and willing to just listen to your fears and worries and who find the time and compassion to respond to you. It feels like I belong to the most caring, warm and non judgemental club in the World. The fact that it’s backed up with Professional advice is a great bonus too. I feel safe on here. You have me forever now!
Catherine, January 2005
I think it is the best baby related website I’ve found, and I don’t tend to look anywhere else now!
This is my first visit and I have subscribed to the newsletter. I have found it very informative and shall be back regularly. It would appear to be written and supported by real parents and not just ‘experts’
I think its a brilliant site and has answered a lot of my worries as I’m expecting twins.
Just brillant, it’s helped us through a scary time. With the advice and information given we learned what to expect which calmed our nerves. Thank you and keep up the great work!
Babyworld has helped me through my first pregnancy, the loss of my second child, and the pregnancy and birth of my 3rd child. Without BW its members and founders my life wouldn’t be as it is today, a happy one!
I think babyworld is great and i’m so happy I found this site at the early stages of my pregnancy to help me through.
Good website, I’ve made new friends. Thank you!!
I have found this site invaluable! I think I may have had a nervous breakdown if it were not for this site! The advice has put my mind at rest on several occasions and it’s good to know there are other women going through what I am going through!
Babyworld has been a lifesaver for me. My pregnancy was through IVF, which is in itself a fairly isolating experience. Add to this, that I am relatively new to this area and work quite a way away, and I needed support in many different ways. Babyworld has been there for me throughout my pregnancy when I hadn’t yet made any friends and I now recommend it to other mothers in my postnatal group.
It’s a very up-beat site, modern but informative. I like how you can see what’s going on at each stage in pregnancy, as well as reading about other people’s experiences. Very good site.
I’d just like to say I am really pleased I found babyworld over 2 yrs ago now when I was expecting baby no 5.
This has been a major source of support for me during my pregnancy and child-rearing experiences, more than anything I could get from people I already knew.
Love it, it has been a great source of information and support to me for over three years.
When experiencing worries I have looked at other sites but always come back to babyworld where I find the answer.
Babyworld is the best mother/baby site I have found on the net. It covers all areas. If I have a worry, I can always find an answer on this site. I can meet new friends and enter competitions.
