#storiesthatmatter: Better support for pregnant moms, healthier newborns
For Charlotte Gabet, innovation manager at Parkview Health, finding resources to support pregnant women and newborns is personal: She experienced just how dangerous stress can be during her own pregnancy with her daughter Scarlett.
Watch our latest #storiesthatmatter to hear Charlotte’s story and learn more about what motivated her, and our partners at Parkview Health, to host the Healthy Mom and Baby Innovation Competition.
About the Healthy Mom and Baby Innovation Competition:
In this global call, Parkview Health and MATTER have partnered to source product, software and program solutions that have the promise and potential of reducing the incidence of infant mortality. Specifically, the competition has two tracks or focus areas:
- How might we better support mom, prior to the birth of her child, by enhancing her maternal health and resilience, providing her seamless access to care, expert advice, education, and better aligning her with both the clinical resources and social support needed to ensure a healthy pregnancy?
- How might we better support baby shortly after birth, by ensuring access to key nutritional supplements, safe sleep and stable support structures and environments?
