“I absolutely love [My Fourth] and have learned so much that could have easily been overlooked or missed. Thank you so much for this! As a new mother and first time postpartum, I feel very supported.”

Natalie

“I loved the daily tips [on My Fourth]! It was really helpful to have something to focus on those early weeks since I was surprised by how difficult they were. The support and expertise were great. I would definitely recommend it!”

Beth

“I appreciated how often [My Fourth] reminds me to slow down and take care of myself. It combats unrealistic societal expectations and therefore feels like it empowers women.”

Emma

“Thank you for this valuable content [on My Fourth]! Mandy was the perfect person to deliver this information.”

Angie

“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. It has also been amazing to get personal check-ins but yet not to feel super guilty if I’m not able to text back every day. It’s just the perfect thing all around for the new mama phase of life. THANK YOU SO MUCH.”

Mackenzie

“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.”

Emily

“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!”

Charlie

“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.”

Jane

“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.”

Postpartum Support Is Critical

3 out of 4

Birth persons are discharged from the hospital without information on postpartum best practices.

Doulas can help bridge the care gap. We know what’s normal, what’s not, and how to care for your healing body. Lactation? We support that, too.
