Essential Care Bundle for Parents & Baby


Need support with the new baby coming?

We've got you covered


Finding confidence as a new parent takes time, but finding the right support should be quick and painless. We created Essential Care because after spending time with hundreds of new parents, in this country it’s just too hard to get the support that new parents need once that baby arrives.

We designed this flexible care model taking inspiration from some of best practices of 4th Trimester care from the UK, Canada, Australia, Israel and Korea and bringing that here to you with WellNested.  


By signing up to the Essential Care Bundle, you are paired with an expert, local mom/baby Nurse who is your go-to guide as you settle into your new life with your little one!

  • One-on-one relationship with your own Nurse
  • Pre-birth consultation
  • 2x Virtual Video Check-ins with your Nurse
  • On-demand Text/Calls with your Nurse
  • Lactation Consultation, coordinated with insurance, same-day or next day
  • Ability to add on additional care as needed (Sleep consults, postpartum doula)

What’s Included


One-on-one relationship with your Nurse

We will match you with one of WellNested's Registered Nurse's with mom/baby experience. She will be your personal guide!


Pre-birth Consultation

If you sign-up before birth, make sure you're ready for the big day with call (voice or video) with your nurse. You can also invite your partner to join if you would like!


Virtual Video Visits

You’ll get 2 visits (up to 1 hour each) with your Nurse via secure video after birth to ensure mom is recovering well, baby is thriving and both parents are feeling confident in their new roles.


On-Demand Text/Calls with your Nurse

With your care, you'll have unlimited access to your Nurse who you can trust to answer your questions correctly (better than Google!) You’ll also have proactive check-in calls to make sure everything is going well with you and your baby, and to connect you with local resources.


Coordinate a Lactation Consultation

Let us organize an in-home or virtual visit within days of delivery (optional but highly recommended).

We only work with International Board Certified Lactation Consultants, the most highly trained lactation consultants available (reimbursable or in-network with most plans in MA).
