Mandy Major

Founder and CEO

Mandy Major is on a mission to change how America handles the fourth trimester. After learning first-hand how little we support and inform new parents during postpartum, she left her 10+ year career in digital media to dedicate herself to birth work and closing the gap in postpartum care. Today, she’s a certified postpartum doula PCD(DONA), founder of virtual postpartum care company Major Care, and creator of the My Fourth app, the first daily tracker devoted to postpartum parents. She has been a spokesperson for Philips Avent and currently serves as the postpartum expert for BabyCenter’s medical advisory board. A graduate of U.C. Santa Cruz’s creative writing program, she holds a M.A. from Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism and has written as a perinatal expert for HuffPost, Healthline, Motherly and more. Find her on Instagram @DoulaMandy and @MajorCareDoulas.
