To the new parents of today and tomorrow, this isn’t always going to be easy. But it’s worth it. There's a new life in your hands, and you're not always going to know what to do. But together, we will.


Sometimes you’ll feel like you know what you’re doing. Other times you won’t. But you don’t have to learn it all on your own. We’re here for you, to work with you. We promise to always listen to your unique experiences, to better understand your family’s needs, and to work with you as a guide through this new chapter of your life.


To celebrate families today we are launching our parent stories, real mums and dads sharing their experiences of becoming parents, their struggles, the issues and challenges they’ve faced and to tell all parents you are not alone, it is OK to ask for help and Karitane is here to support YOU!.


Lauren Hannaford and Zoe Marshall spoke with the Morning Show this week about being part of this honest and thought provoking series about “picture perfect” parenting and breaking up the stigma associated with asking for help on your parenting journey.
