In the fall of 2019, we conceived of a platform to provide convenient and easy access to high-quality support for the well-being of women during all stages of pregnancy and the postpartum period. At EmmaWell, we believe that by improving maternal mental health for all moms and their families, we can ultimately help reduce maternal mortality and morbidity rates in the U.S.
We have created this platform specifically to help OB providers connect new and expecting moms with the resources they need to optimize their own mental well-being, including (i) telehealth services focused on maternal wellness, (ii) expert pregnancy and postpartum guidance-on-the-go via our app, and (iii) curated maternal wellness resource lists, in one convenient online location.
Our suite of telehealth services is designed to make all aspects of maternal care more accessible and affordable and improve maternal mental well-being. From therapists who are experts in treating all kinds of prenatal and postpartum mood and anxiety disorders to certified lactation consultants (IBCLCs) trained to troubleshoot any baby feeding issue, we have partnered with specialists who are passionate about making a difference.
Our free, mobile web-based app provides well-researched, informative content to guide moms-to-be through each week of pregnancy and beyond, as well as planning tools to prepare for the postpartum period. Anticipatory guidance like ours has been proven to improve maternal well-being, through reduced symptoms of depression and increased duration of breastfeeding.
Our resource section is brimming with books, websites, classes, support groups, and local professionals with expertise in the needs of women throughout pregnancy and the postpartum period. This resource section has been curated by OB providers and ensures that patients never have to search far for services that they require.
We are currently in a “beta-testing” phase, working with a select group of women's health practices in the greater Philadelphia area who are referring patients to EmmaWell. We look forward to continuing our efforts to improve maternal mental health for all by broadening our scope and expanding access to our services over the coming years.
If you are a new mom or mom-to-be, we hope that EmmaWell will be your guide to navigating your first steps in the extraordinary journey of motherhood.
With Warmth and Wellness,
Your EmmaWell Team
