We're proud to offer the industry-leading maternity and family benefits solution: Ovia Health for Fertility, Pregnancy, and Parenting. Our solution not only helps women and families live happier, healthier lives — it also helps reduce healthcare costs for employers. This January, it was announced that Ovia Health has been selected for inclusion in Willis Towers Watson's new Family and Fertility Solution, which will help employers support all of their employees at every stage of family planning. Through Willis Towers Watson's Family and Fertility Solution, Ovia Health will continue to offer employers services that start with guidance and coaching for conceiving naturally and continue with pregnancy, postpartum, and return-to-work support.

Ovia Health hosted a webinar with Duke Obstetrics & Gynecology and the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine educating women about Hepatitis C and pregnancy. Dr. Brenna Hughes talked about the screening, treatment, and management of Hepatitis C, a condition that affects up to 1 in 100 pregnant women. In addition, Gina Nebesar, co-founder and Chief Product Officer of Ovia Health, shared the story of how the Ovia Health team discovered that healthcare is failing women, on a micro and macro scale, every day — and what we're doing about it. She also wrote a piece about how working mothers can advocate for themselves and other parents in the workplace.

Selecting a provider and a delivery location is arguably one of the most important decisions that a pregnant woman makes. The Clinical Affairs team at Ovia Health worked with Ariadne Labs to complete a study about how women choose providers and the hospital where they'll deliver. Read the results on The Health Care Blog! We're so proud all the work we've done to improve and enhance the healthcare system for women and families, and we'd love for you to be a part of it!
