New app enables parents to speak with nurses, lactation consultants, or other baby care experts 24/7 via video, voice, and text
San Francisco: Women make up at least 40% of the workforce in more than 80 countries and nearly half are of childbearing age. As a result, multi-national employers are searching for high-quality, cost-effective ways to attract, support, and retain talented young women and men, planning to grow their families. Momseze, a mobile app-based in San Francisco, is working with Innovation Incubator to help multi-national organizations revolutionize the way they support new parents as they navigate the challenges of new parenthood and prepare to return to work.
Momseze is a support and education solution that enables parents to connect immediately on-demand or via an appointment, via video chat, voice, or text, with a nurse, lactation consultant, or baby care expert 24/7, 365 days a year. Users simply launch the Momseze app (available for download on an iPhone in iTunes or an Android in Google Play) and press “Connect Now” or “Schedule an Appointment” to speak with an expert via video chat, voice, or text directly through the app, on their phone or computer.
“We applaud Innovation Incubator for recognizing that Momseze is exactly the type of service that leading organizations around the world are looking for to improve employee satisfaction and retention and provide employees and their families with high-quality, transparent, value-based care at a reasonable cost,” explains Momseze Co-Founder and CEO Shana Lawlor.
“There are many barriers to parents receiving support when they need it most – which is often in the middle of the night in a suddenly urgent and stressful situation,” Lawlor adds. “That’s exactly what we set out to help solve. With our team of highly skilled consultants, our focus is on providing empathetic, non-judgmental expert support. No question is too small or too strange.”
Momseze consultants include registered nurses (NICU, Labor, and Delivery, ED, Pediatric), in-hospital lactation consultants, doulas, registered dietitians, nutritionists, infant massage therapists, and perinatal educators.
“In countries such as India where breastfeeding is a public health responsibility, Momseze will help multi-national and domestic companies continue to empower their employees with seamless access to timely help,” said Antony Satyadas CEO Managing Partner and Co-founder of Innovation Incubator group of companies. “We are excited to offer this as a service to our employees at Technopark Trivandrum across the Innovation Incubator family of companies such as Cognub Decision Solutions, 3E IT Solutions, Innovation Incubator Advisory, and PropMix.io and look forward to extending the value of cognitive digitization around the globe.”
