Judy commented on HANDDIT – the local marketplace for parents

Hi Danielle,
Thank you for your question! I designed HANDDIT with London in mind, which is where I live and have conducted my research. The issue of lonely parents is not unique to cities, and I would love to find a solution that works everywhere. However, this would require a lot more research into the relationship between families and in particular, women in different locations. Perhaps a framework for events that bring parents together offline would be a good start? Lots to think about! All the best, Judy

Hi Kate,
This is great. I suffered from depression after our first child was born, and didn't realise for a long time. This is an issue close to my heart. My focus has been more on the prevention side (including the idea that I submitted), but I'd be happy to contribute both research and personal experience if anyone wanted to take this further.
