Overview

The Get Ready for Baby website was commissioned by Brisbane South PHN and aimed to educate first-time parents about their health care team, providing essential information on navigating pregnancy safely and raising a healthy baby.

The microsite had its initial build and release in 2019, followed by a content revamp in 2022. The revamp ensured the information remained up-to-date and incorporated improved cultural sensitivity in the space of gender pronouns, family dynamics, and religion.

RedSuit Advertising agency in Brisbane handled the design phase, and as the exclusive website development partner, I collaborated closely with them to seamlessly execute the development process.
