Empowering Mothers: Technology and Telehealth Companies Team up to Offer Birth Doula Support for Healthier Deliveries

MotivHealth Health Insurer Collaborates with AZOVA to Provide Doula Support Services

AZOVA Health, a telehealth company based in Utah, has partnered with MotivHealth, a health insurance company, to offer Birth Doula Support Memberships to its members. Through this partnership, AZOVA will connect the health insurer’s patients with doulas as part of their membership.

Dr. Cheryl Lee Eberting, CEO and founder of AZOVA Health, expressed excitement about the partnership, stating that by using technology to connect mothers with expert doulas, they aim to empower women during their birthing journey. Studies have shown that doula support can help mitigate health disparities and lead to positive delivery outcomes, such as reduced premature deliveries, cesarean sections, and shorter labor lengths. Doula support has also been linked to improved breastfeeding success among low-income women.

This partnership is just one example of how technology-enabled companies are focusing on maternal health. FarmboxRx launched a Maternal Health Program to provide food and nutrition education to at-risk pregnant women during and after pregnancy. Mae Health offers pregnancy and postpartum support specifically for Black expectant mothers. These partnerships and initiatives demonstrate a growing trend in utilizing technology to support maternal health and improve outcomes for pregnant women and new mothers.
