“Recent studies have shown the enormous impact that the pandemic has had on the rate of anxiety, stress and depression in pregnant women, known to have a connection to shortened gestation periods and preterm delivery — birthing factors that contribute to the high rates of maternal and infant mortality and morbidity. NurtureVR offers pregnant moms and families a calming place to forge a deeper connection with, and understanding of, the physical and emotional changes underway, allowing for the strengthening of coping and resiliency mechanisms that can change the state of maternal mental health in the U.S. We are thrilled to have Sonder Health as a partner on this journey”

“There is a huge need for additional support for moms, especially right now during the COVID pandemic. Medical facilities currently cannot keep up with the level of maternal care that moms need, including mental health and lactation support -two major factors in health outcomes for both mom and baby”

in Michele M. Behme, CEO at Sonder Health

“Many women do not receive help for behavioral health issues, lactation or nutrition support until they discover there is a major problem. We want to change that and give moms the support they need when they need it. Our partnership with BehaVR allows us to reach even more women and babies with the care they deserve.””
