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
