5 Parenting Startups in Indonesia that make Raising Child more Enjoyable
Raising a child is one of the hardest jobs in the world. Though it can be rewarding, taking care of children with their needs is exhausting. A lot of new mothers experience postpartum depression (baby blues) within several weeks after giving birth.
According to the Ministry of Health, the children population in Indonesia reached 85,6 million in 2021. Unfortunately, around 30% of children in Indonesia haven’t achieved their optimal growth and development potential and 24.4% experienced stunting. Some of the factors that affect the growth of children are nutrition, stimulation, parenting, and family socioeconomic conditions. According to the Copenhagen Consensus, the Indonesian population will grow to 321 million by 2050. With this rapid population growth, parenting problems become more urgent. If not handled properly, more and more children will suffer from development issues.
To respond to this problem, various parenting startups have been established in Indonesia. Their business models generally focus on parenting education, consultation, and selling products related to parenting. Check out these 5 parenting startups in Indonesia that you should look forward to.
