uniting to make new parenthood a more supported experience

ABOUT nessle

Nessle is an online directory connecting new and expectant parents with perinatal experts for evidence-based, virtual learning and one-on-one remote counseling on the topics that matter most during pregnancy, birth, postpartum, and early childhood. Our vision is a more supported parenthood marked by caring, connection, and learning--on your terms.

At Nessle, we believe in real parenthood. The ups. The downs. The delight of your baby's gummy grin. The fog of sleeplessness. We are building an online community dedicated to connecting parents with the support they need, whether it's a 20-minute video chat with a certified lactation consultant, a late-night call with a postpartum doula, or a curated course that answers burning questions with practical, evidence-based guidance.
