Gidget Perinatal Support Centre powered by Sonder

by Kim (follow)
Get connected to nurses, midwives and mental health experts at any time of the day or night with Sonder.



Being a new or expectant parent is a learning curve, and sometimes a tough one. Adjusting to life with a newborn, sleepless nights, isolation from your usual social groups or activities and a new sense of worry can be a rollercoaster.

“Sonder has been so helpful - I’m the first of my friends to have a baby so knowing I always have someone to ask questions of has been incredible. The nurses and midwives always take the time to listen when I’m feeling low, I’ve been able to send over photos when I’m not sure what to do, too.

Better yet, they’re available through the night when my daughter is awake and no-one else is!”

Bethany, 31, NSW

There might be times when you don’t know who to turn to or need a friendly ear - whenever those times arise, the team at Sonder are there to help.

Whilst all members of the Sonder team can support expectant and new parents with a range of health and wellbeing issues, every member of the team is also trained in mental health first aid.

Nearly 1 in 5 mothers and 1 in 10 fathers will suffer perinatal depression and anxiety; that’s around 100,000 Australians each year. That’s why Gidget Foundation Australia, who specialise in PNDA support, has partnered with Sonder to provide a multilingual, 24/7 safety and wellbeing support app that expectant and new parents can access for FREE.

Parent or baby health
Breastfeeding advice
Morning sickness advice
Relationship worries
Navigating new parenthood
Coping with a miscarriage
Pregnancy and preparing for birth
Loneliness and isolation
Navigating the healthcare system
Sleep concerns
… and anything in between
