Want to make friends with someone who’s got a similar due date? Find your pregnancy friend with our Bump Buddy feature on the Peanut app!
When we discovered that 70% of pregnant women were suffering extreme loneliness because of the pandemic, we knew we had to step in.
Here at Peanut, our core mission has always been to provide support, community, and connection.
We’re committed to building tools to make women’s lives better.
And at a moment in time when pregnant women are experiencing such a monumental life change, the pandemic has created a bigger need for these tools than ever before.
That’s why we launched Bump Buddies in 2020, a new way for expectant mamas sharing similar due dates to connect, chat, and share advice with each other.
And Bump Buddies have grown from there!

What is a Bump Buddy?
With pregnancy classes and IRL meet-ups canceled during the pandemic, having virtual ways to meet women who understand what you’re going through was more important than ever.
And our Bump Buddy feature makes finding pregnancy friends so much more simple.
Bump Buddy groups connect mamas-to-be who share similar due dates to help them navigate every stage of pregnancy.
So you can connect with someone who’s pregnant at the same time as you, maybe even with the same due date!
These bump groups also foster new and supportive friendships with women going through the same joys and challenges ‒ from first scans to birth plans!
How does Bump Buddy work?
When you join Peanut, you’ll be able to add your pregnancy to your profile and tell us how far along you are.
Using this information, we then automatically add you to a group dedicated to your due date and location.
To find your group, simply head to the profile tab and tap ‘My Groups’.
You’ll find something like April 2023 Babies 🇺🇸.
