Supporting the journey to and through parenthood

One of the biggest questions you may ask yourself is whether or not to start a family. If your answer is yes you’re ready, then wouldn’t it be nice to have extra support along the way?

No, I’m not talking about the unsolicited advice you may get from your family, friends, or even people you’ve just met. I’m talking about having support from professionals who are dedicated to helping women and their families during their journey to parenthood.

Having support through some of your biggest life’s transitions is invaluable, and that’s what Ovia Health is here to do. Ovia Health is an app-based solution offering virtual programing for all your family health needs including fertility, pregnancy, and parenting.

Ovia Health has a team of in-house coaches who are available seven days a week to answer questions and guide you in the right direction. They will get to know you and give you advice tailored to your unique health journey.

Recently, the Ovia Health coaching team guided a member who was struggling with her mental health during her pregnancy. The member shared that she had considered an antidepressant medication but was worried about how that may impact the pregnancy. The coach shared information and resources about the safety of certain antidepressants during pregnancy, as well as tips and strategies for effectively managing stress. The Ovia Health coach also encouraged the member to reach out to her provider and offered to help connect her with her provider if needed. The member was grateful for having Ovia Health in her corner, and was able to safely and confidently obtain the care she needed from her provider, while also practicing strategies that the coach recommended to ensure she would have a happier and healthier pregnancy moving forward.

No matter your question or concern, Ovia Health is here to help. Whether you are unsure about your menstrual cycle, confused about a pregnancy symptom, or are having trouble getting your infant to sleep – you can find Ovia Health’s team of experts in your pocket whenever you need them.
