If you’re interested in a more comprehensive product offering, our Total Care plan includes access to our pediatric specialists across nutrition, sleep, lactation, and child development in addition to your pediatricians 24/7. You’ll even get access to WavelyDx, our diagnostic partner, to help rule out ear infections in your little ones.

Will prices increase for existing subscribers?

No, all existing subscribers will have access to Total Care at the previous price. We will also give existing subscribers a one-time exception for unintentional cancellations such as failed payments before requiring our new pricing terms.

I’m subscribed to the basics plan, why can’t I start a session with a pediatrician via text?

Our basic plan only allows you to chat with a pediatrician via the chat request feature on your Care Hub on our mobile or web application. If you’d like to start a session via text with a provider, you’ll need to upgrade your subscription to either our enhanced or total care packages.
