We believe every mother should have access to effective care.

The research shows that long-term outcomes for moms and their babies are shaped by the wellbeing of the mom. Every expecting and new mother and family deserves to have the tools to help manage the inevitable ups and downs of this transition.

Some of our partners


Hear from parents about their experience with Canopie in their own words.

"Canopie's recordings have helped immensely with relaxation and reminding of self worth and to take care of yourself as much as you take care of baby."

Lauren, New mama

"I would recommend this to all moms because these words were encouraging, empowering. Listening to the recordings made you want to get up off the couch and start doing something different with your life, start living."

Julia, Expecting

"I have done CBT in the past to manage anxiety and low self esteem however I did not feel like the techniques / information I was given worked for me. This course was a lot more on my level and relatable."

Beth, New mama

“Social media makes it look like new moms are loving every minute of it and if you are struggling in any way you're broken. It is very isolating. Canopie not only helped me to realize my struggles and negative thoughts are normal and not my fault.”
