Starting a family is one of the most life-changing decisions a woman, couple, or family can make. On top of the emotional and financial responsibilities that come with having a baby, the medical involvement is also an important factor. Childbirth is one of the most significant medical experiences a woman can go through, especially if it’s her first time interacting with the healthcare system. Through technology and support from her employer, a woman can be better equipped to have a healthier pregnancy.
Fertility and maternity benefits are an important factor for women when they’re seeking job opportunities. On the flip side, employers are looking for innovative, comprehensive solutions to offer their employees to not only recruit and retain top talent, but to improve outcomes and lower costs of fertility and maternity care. Excellent fertility and maternity programs can help women start families with confidence and provide educational and technological resources to ensure healthier conception and pregnancy.
Childbirth accounts for the majority of U.S. hospitalizations for women with employer-sponsored healthcare. In addition to the physical, emotional, and productivity costs of these hospitalizations, the medical costs add up for both the employer and the employee. In this age of the digital health revolution, significant improvements are being made in technology and transparency to allow for better care for pregnant women and new mothers.
Employers are vital in affecting change in this digital health revolution. By providing robust programs and resources for your employees, you’re not only allowing them to take control of their health, but you’re ultimately saving money for both your organization and your employees.
