Peppy provides access to third-party healthcare professionals (each, an “Expert”) and products (each, a “Product”) to support users through various life transitions including fertility, parenthood and employer (each, the “Services”) via a “Subscription”.

The scope of the support provided by Experts is non-medical. Peppy does not endorse or recommend any specific tests, providers, products, procedures, medications, devices, opinions, diagnoses, or other information that may be provided or mentioned by any Expert. We encourage you to consult with your healthcare provider before using our Services or engaging any Expert. Our Services are not a substitute for a primary care physician, obstetrician, pediatrician or any other medical service.
While we endeavor to find you Experts who will be helpful to you, we make no representation or warranty as to whether you will find any Expert’s services relevant, useful, correct, satisfactory or suitable to your needs.
DO NOT USE THE SERVICE FOR MEDICAL OR ANY OTHER EMERGENCIES UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.
