About Us

Our Story

Get ready for an amazing ride with us at Virtual Parenting Hub!

Babrah from the lively city of Harare, Zimbabwe, and Carey from the bustling heart of Melbourne, Australia. Even though we grew up far apart, destiny brought us together, and our awesome story is all about innovation and caring. When we were young, both of us had a strong calling—to help people going through tough times. In 2009, we met at a fancy hospital in Melbourne, and boom, an instant connection! Our friendship grew, and our paths aligned perfectly.

From being Midwives at the hospital, we switched gears to becoming Child and Family Health Nurses in the community. We realized families needed more support. Parents were facing tough challenges, often feeling alone, and they didn’t have all the info they needed.  This is when the idea for the Virtual Parenting Hub was born.

With over 25 years of combined experience in Nursing, Midwifery, and Child and Family Health Nursing, we cooked up Virtual Parenting Hub to be a total game-changer. It’s a special place that gives answers, but more than that, it’s like a digital hug for parents on their unique journey.

Now, the star of the show is CareChat, a super-smart Chatbot powered by tech magic. CareChat is like the best buddy who knows everything about parenting—from the start of pregnancy to handling a super-active 5-year-old. It’s not just about answers; CareChat is there to guide you, support you, and understand your parenting highs and lows.

Virtual Parenting Hub came to life because we wanted to help families on their parenting adventures. It shows how Babrah and Carey, two unstoppable dream-chasers, put their heads together and created a treasure trove of wisdom and support for all the amazing parents out there.

Join us in rewriting the parenting story! At Virtual Parenting Hub, we’re the buddies who’ve got your back, ready to give you answers, a boost of confidence, and a sense of togetherness, all just a message away. 🌟👶🤖
