“This text service is a perfect blend between the “mom/aunt/grandma/older sister” type support that I feel like everyone wishes they had if they don’t, and the solid clinical type advice you could expect from your OB or midwife.

“Absolutely amazing. Of all the support people we worked with prior to and after birth, [Major Care doulas] were by far the best: the most knowledgeable, warm, and practical.”
“Six months ago, I didn’t even know what a doula was. Now I’m gifting doula services to friends and family. I can’t tell you how pleased I am that I discovered Major Care, which helps anyone who is caring for a baby (or about to have one). Yes, guys, this includes us too!”
“I loved going into the app in the middle of the night during feedings because it made me feel less alone. It was way better than scrolling on social and made me feel supported. It also gave me great advice and suggestions for approaching the postpartum journey.”
“Thank you for working on creating an app specifically for the fourth trimester. It’s such a challenging time where moms rarely reach out for help or may not even realize that they need additional resources unless they’ve been tracking their well-being as much as tracking their newborn’s.”
