Why EmmaWell Was Born
In the winter of 2019, we conceived of a platform to provide convenient and easy access to support the mental well-being of people during their pregnancy and the postpartum period. At EmmaWell, we believe that by improving the mental health of all mothers and birthing people, we can help to reduce the complications, hospital admissions, and disability claims that can result from perinatal mental health conditions.
We have created a comprehensive, digital program that aims to provide the guidance, support, and education that expecting and new parents need through an easy-to-access, engaging platform that includes:
evidence-based guidance and resources on-the-go via our mobile app
support via one-on-one virtual consults and peer-led support groups
convenient virtual education via our live webinars or our on-demand psychoeducation course and webinars.
We take a proactive approach and aim to enroll expectant and new parents into our program to help manage existing symptoms and prevent perinatal mental health conditions.
Our program consists of virtual services that are designed to make maternal care more accessible and affordable while improving maternal mental well-being. From therapists who are experienced in treating all types of prenatal and postpartum mood and anxiety disorders to material coaches with expertise in women's health, we have partnered with maternal health and wellness experts who are passionate about making a difference.
We offer live and on-demand educational webinars to help families prepare for the arrival of their little one and work through the challenges of new parenthood with the guidance of our experts and evidence-based content.
Our free, mobile app provides well-researched, informative content to guide parents-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.
Finally, check out our lists of resources: brimming with books, websites, classes, local support groups, and local professionals with expertise in the needs of parents throughout pregnancy and the postpartum period. This resource section has been curated by women's health professionals and ensures that expecting and new parents never have to search far for information and services that they are searching for.
If you are an expecting or new parent, we hope that you find EmmaWell’s services helpful as you navigate your first steps in the extraordinary journey of parenthood.
