Quilted Health exists because we believe that the entire maternity care experience before, during, and after birth should be better and that pregnant people and their families want high quality care that is more accessible and personal. We envision a world where equity and access are at the center of reproductive care for all people - a world where all people, regardless of race, gender, geography, ability, or income have access to evidence-based, inclusive, and delightful care. At a time when the US ranks the worst among OECD countries for maternal health outcomes, this work is unquestionably important and necessary.

We are designing our services to meet the needs of pregnant people and their families, and to bring the most innovative and evidence-based care model to them. We are also thoughtfully designing our model to scale to communities large and small. We strive to make care accessible and inclusive, delightful to all who interact with it, and view technology as an enabler of continuous connection and engagement. We are deeply committed to creating a purpose-filled, sustainable, and rewarding professional career for our team members.
