At Bellabeat, we are passionately dedicated to providing you with health information that you can trust, access easily, and rely on to make informed decisions about women’s health.
Our unwavering commitment to your health guides everything we do. Allow us to introduce you to the foundation of our editorial process, ensuring the highest standards of quality, accuracy, and user engagement.
Our editorial process is built upon four pillars that set the gold standard for health information:
There’s a lot of health info out there, but it can be pretty confusing to find your way around. At Bellabeat, we’ve made it our mission to transform this experience.
We provide content that you can rely on, backed by evidence and science, presented clearly, and accessible to all. We’re not only focused on women’s health – we care about your overall well-being. That means we talk about a wide range of topics and different points of view, openly and fairly.
We recognize that each health journey is unique, and so we stand for inclusivity and empathy. Our doors are open, judgment-free, to everyone in search of better health.
When you turn to Bellabeat, you seek accurate, trustworthy information about women’s health. It’s our responsibility to uphold the highest journalistic standards.
Our informational and educational content are unbiased, timely, research-backed, and comprehensive.
Our content is brought to life through individual perspectives, told with empathy, candor, and respect.
Here’s how we ensure we meet these standards:
We are committed to making sure that every piece of content we publish is accessible and understandable. To achieve this, we rely on our custom style guide. This guide makes sure our writers and editors focus on making things easy to understand, clear, friendly, and inclusive. We also make sure to use real-life examples, good sources, and clear citations.
You’ll notice that our tone is warm and approachable, yet unwaveringly progressive. We use thoughtful, respectful language that promotes inclusivity and compassion.
Our use of empathetic language allows us to tell judgment-free stories, making deliberate choices to eradicate stigma, stereotypes, and bias.
We always use language that’s considerate and thoughtful. We actively engage with community advocates and track language trends within health communities. We choose our words carefully to combat stigmas and empower our readers.
As language evolves, so do we. We respect individual differences in how health impacts each of us, and we honor the choice of words used when sharing personal stories. After all, being a true ally means putting you, the reader, at the center of everything we do. Our language reflects this viewpoint.
Health information is in a perpetual state of evolution. New research emerges, old notions are dispelled, and terminology becomes outdated.
At Bellabeat, we recognize this dynamic nature of health information. We are committed to continually monitoring and updating our content to ensure we offer you the most up-to-date and accurate information possible.
To make this commitment a reality, we’ve assembled teams of editors and experts dedicated to identifying and updating any inaccurate or unclear information.
Our Medical Experts team keeps a close eye on changes in women’s health, following new guidelines, and major practice recommendations. They share these insights with our editors and partners to facilitate the ongoing improvement of our content.
As you navigate our content, you’ll come across various dates. Each date corresponds to a different stage in our editorial process:
Our commitment to content updating and re-review arises from several ongoing processes:
We are committed to delivering the highest quality of medical and scientific content to our readers. To ensure the accuracy and reliability of our health information, we have established a dedicated Medical Expert Team.

These experts bring a wealth of knowledge and extensive experience in a wide range of medical and healthcare disciplines.
