For Hopeful, Expecting, New & Experienced Moms

Do I have to pay to create an account?

Our goal in creating MyNestwell is to increase mom’s access to these important providers, so our mom accounts are free!

What information will I be asked to provide to create an account?

We want to determine the best way to support you on your motherhood journey and which local providers could be your perfect match, so we ask you about where you are on your journey, how you want to feel, what you could use a little extra help with, and where you live. We ask a few personal identifiers just to help set up your account. All of this information also helps us to know what other resources, articles, and events we can provide to serve you best.

Can I update my personal profile at any time?

Yes, you have access to update your personal profile and change anything you’d like — especially if you’ve gone from trying to conceive to pregnant to full-on motherhood!

Do people see my personal and contact information?

Generally, the only private information we make publicly visible is your first name and the first initial of your last name. We do not share your street address, email address, full last name, or birthday. Please visit our Privacy Policy for complete information about our information collection, use and sharing practices. Please also know that any personal information you share in reviews will be visible to site visitors and others.

What types of providers do you list?

We list providers who specialize in the unique emotional, mental, and physical needs of women from preconception to fifth trimester* and beyond. Here is a list of some of the services our providers offer:

Acupuncture
Birth / Postpartum Doula Support
Childbirth Education
Couples Therapy
Health Coaching
Life Coaching

Motherhood Coaching
Perinatal Fitness Instruction
Perinatal Yoga Instruction
Perinatal Chiropractic Care
Perinatal Massage

Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy
Perinatal Therapy
Perinatal Psychiatry
Lactation Consulting

*What is the fifth trimester?

Coined by author Lauren Smith Brody, the fifth trimester marks a mom’s transition back to the workplace.

Why don’t you list OB/GYNs, midwives, or reproductive endocrinologists?

While we believe that they provide an essential and invaluable role in the motherhood journey, we choose to focus on those providers who offer care and support that is complementary to the care you get in a traditional medical setting, clinic, or hospital.

How do I review a provider?

First of all, thank you for offering to review a provider! By giving other moms insight into your experience you’re paying it forward, helping them discover their ideal provider more easily. To review any provider, you must create an account. Afterwards, you can go to any provider’s profile and click the Review button to start the process. The most helpful reviews give details and examples rather than generalities. Think specifically about what you most appreciated about your experience and how your provider made you feel during your visit…or visits!

If you have constructive criticism for a provider, it’s always best to reach out to them directly so they can continue to improve their care approach for other moms!

Will my name be visible in my review?

We only display your first name and the first initial of your last name to protect identifying information.

Why am I having trouble finding providers in my area?

We’re currently in Westchester County, NY, and lower Fairfield County, CT, but we’re expanding to new cities soon! If you’d like us to come to your city next, click here so you can be the first to know when we arrive!

Do MyNestwell providers support all moms, regardless of their sex, gender, race, and ethnicity? Are providers LGBTQ friendly?

MyNestwell providers support any person who identifies as a hopeful, expecting, or new “mom.” Our provider members (i.e. those with a full provider profile and bio) are required to share this commitment to work with all families when they join our site.

Which provider is best for me?

We hear you, and we’ve got you! This process can be so overwhelming! When you first arrive to our site, before creating an account, we’ll guide you through a list of questions to help discover your ideal match(es) in your area. After you create an account, you can search providers using our filter tools. If you’re curious about what each provider does, you can check out our PreconceptionPregnancy, and Postpartum pages which dive deeper into which providers are most supportive for specific stages of motherhood and what each one does. You can also consult our Nesting Notes Blog for specific articles related to different maternal wellness topics. If you are feeling overwhelmed by any of this, that’s okay! You can reach out to us via email at hello@mynestwell.com at any time for a little extra guidance.

When is your next MyNestwell event?

We’re so excited you asked! Our dream is to connect more moms with each other and with their potential care providers, while learning and getting inspired at the same time. That’s the goal of our events — to take MyNestwell offline and in real life. To gather, share, inspire, and learn. To check out our most recent events and sign up for upcoming ones, check out our Events page.

How is this different from other websites I’m on?

MyNestwell was created because our founder, Emily Watson, struggled to filter through individual provider websites, other review platforms, and other local directories during her other fertility and pregnancy journeys. Frustrated with incomplete and irrelevant search results, she wanted a single comprehensive resource of providers who specialized exclusively on maternal wellness. Having this niche of providers in one place, with easy-to-filter results, not only makes it easier for moms to find the best care for them, but it also establishes you, the provider, as a trusted member of this amazing professional network. As a member of MyNestwell, you elevate your status as a go-to resource for moms.

Not to mention, our profiles go beyond giving basic business information; they reveal unique qualities about your maternal specialities, philosophy, and care goals so that your ideal clients can truly connect with you and envision you as their care provider during this intimate time in their motherhood journey. You can submit a blog post to our Nesting Notes Blog to further boost your credibility and educate and empower moms on their journey.

MyNestwell is more than just an online platform. We’re building a community. Your membership gives you access to local events in your area that connect you with other maternal wellness providers and moms, further expanding your network. To check out our most recent and upcoming events, visit our Events page.

By being part of MyNestwell, a comprehensive directory of maternal wellness providers, you’re helping normalize moms seeking help and support during this exciting but challenging time and de-stigmatize the idea that “women should do it all.”

What types of membership do you offer?

We currently offer a basic membership and a premium single monthly membership, with no minimum monthly commitment. For a limited number of members, you can join as a MyNestwell Founding Member for $19/ month — for life. After all of our Founding Memberships are fulfilled, monthly membership rates will increase to $29/ month.

In the Basic membership, you do not have access to your own account profile and all of the other perks of being a Premium member, but you are part of our listing. In the Premium membership, you get full access to your profile to update all relevant information to help you attract your ideal mom client.

To learn more about all of the differences between the Basic and Premium memberships and to sign up for a Premium membership, scroll to the middle of this page.

Some of the other sites I’m on are free, so why do you charge for membership?

MyNestwell is only useful insofar as it endures to connect moms to quality care, and so we must collect revenue to remain sustainable. Our goal is to create an inviting and secure platform that attracts your ideal client. We do this by creating engaging, educational content, curating provider profiles that showcase the unique offerings of your business, and hosting free community events that connect moms and providers. In order to deliver this service to moms at no charge, so they can invest in your services, we charge providers to help us cover the resources needed to make this service exceptional.

Plus, we offer you valuable marketing tips and tricks to help grow your business and continue to boost your visibility.

How do I cancel my membership?

We’d hate to see you go! You can cancel your membership at any time. To cancel, you can email us at memberships@mynestwell.com to begin the process.

Is my credit card information safe?

Definitely. We use the highest level SSL encryption technology through Stripe to secure all commerce transactions.

I’m a business with multiple providers who help moms. Do you offer a business discount?

At this time, we do not offer a business discount because moms are choosing the individual provider, not the office. Plus, some offices have providers who specialize in a variety of maternal wellness areas, so we want to make sure everyone is fairly represented. All providers must create a separate membership account and profile to get listed.

What is MyNestwell’s inclusivity policy?

MyNestwell is committed to being inclusive and serving anyone who identifies as “mom,” regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, or sexuality. We ask our provider members to make that same commitment. It is important to us that our members are progressive and inclusive in their care approach. We are committed to inclusivity and continue work to create a consistent message across the platform that reflects that.

Why do you include reviews? Why do you not include ratings?

MyNestwell includes reviews, but it does not quantify providers based on any numerical metric. By including written reviews or testimonials, we enable other moms to share their experience and stories with a provider in greater detail, so that other moms can better understand what it is like to work with that provider. It is our hope that these testimonials enable past clients to make a more informed and educated decision that inspires them to connect with a provider.

We also work to bridge the provider-client connection gap by creating profiles that are more personality-driven that reveal a provider’s approach, philosophy, and style rather than just practical information. Getting a feel for a provider and the things that matter are really difficult to quantify as there is so much nuance and subtle to a client-provider relationship. All of the opportunities from the platform combined: from the provider profile, to the client testimonials, to blog post contributions, to Instagram promotions, to the opportunity to participate in community events and talks help showcase each providers’ unique qualities and enable them to connect with their potential clients on a deeper level.

What if I get a negative review?

It is our hope that you only get glowing reviews! With that said, we understand that things can sometimes go sideways. While encouraging moms to email providers directly if they had an unsatisfactory experience to offer constructive feedback, some still may write via our platform. In our experience, a negative review is actually an opportunity to build an even more meaningful relationship with a client. People value your desire to understand them and go above and beyond to make things right. This can often lead to them either rewriting their review and/or singing your praises via word of mouth. And speaking from experience, it is always best to keep an open mind with reviews and look for any potentially constructive comments to become a better provider.

But how do I get reviews?

We want to empower you to get positive reviews, so while we encourage you to provide the very best possible care to inspire reviews, we also give you very tangible suggestions for how to request reviews without feeling awkward. The #1 way to get reviews is to ask! Moms are usually more than happy to write a brief review if they know it can help you and other moms.

How do I contribute an article to your blog?

We love when our providers want to educate and inspire our moms! Not only do you get to share insights into your work with moms with our MyNestwell community, but you’ll also boost your online presence and visibility. You’ll get a link to all articles directly on your profile. It’s a fantastic way for local prospective clients to get a feel for your expertise and knowledge, beyond your profile.

If interested in contributing a 500 word article to our blog, fill out the form here. We’ll email you with next steps if selected. As a bonus for contributing a blog article, you’ll also be featured on the MyNestwell instagram feed for extra visibility and exposure!

You’re not yet in my city, but I want to get on the list to launch when you do. How do I do that?

Yay! We’re working on expanding to new areas, and we’re thrilled that you think we’d be a valuable resource for the women in your city. To be the first to know when we arrive in your city, click here to get on the list.
