Leading Lifestage Media Company Launches Web Hub to Coach First-Time Parents Through Pregnancy & Parenthood
NEW YORK, June 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Before their third anniversary, 60% of TheKnot.com's annual 1+ million newlyweds will be pregnant. In response to the growing demand for pregnancy advice and resources, The Knot Inc. (Nasdaq: KNOT - News) a leading lifestage media and services company, has given birth to a new hip and helpful hub for first-time parents: TheNestBaby.com.)
Designed using the one-stop web resource model that made TheKnot.com the Internet's most popular online wedding planning destination, TheNestBaby.com has been crafted to guide the information-hungry parents of the 4+ million babies born in the U.S. each year through the uncharted territory of pregnancy and parenthood by bringing modern advice, an active community, and detailed local content together in a single website.
Harnessing the power of social networking, TheNestBaby.com connects parents to their peers and personalized advice -- using an unparalleled combination of user-generated content and up-to-date community features including baby blogs, local reviews, lists, profiles, photo galleries, and topic-based message boards. This highly interactive community gives moms to-be 24-hour access to the equivalent of thousands of phone calls to friends (many of whom have already connected through the online communities on TheKnot.com and TheNest.com).
Like TheKnot.com, TheNestBaby.com also provides pregnant moms and new parents with essential information such as stage-by-stage advice, expert Q&As, interactive tools, product reviews, checklists, as well as local events listings and resource reviews powered by Lilaguide.com, the Web's largest searchable database of real-parent feedback on local baby doctors, stores, and services.
"For years the brides who planned their weddings on TheKnot.com have been begging us to create 'The Knot for new moms,'" explains Carley Roney, The Knot Cofounder & Editor in Chief. "TheNestBaby.com combines our tell-it-like-it-is approach to advice with super-addictive social networking features and deep local content -- in a single destination."
