and champion a model
for equitable access to
compassionate,
evidence-based, whole-
person pregnancy care.

Why?

Because the current model of pregnancy care, including birth and postnatal care, is falling short. Outcomes are substandard and the approach often lacks compassion. This is particularly true for historically marginalized communities.

At Quilted Health, we believe every pregnant person – regardless of race, gender, sexuality, location, ability or income – deserves a better standard of care.

What We're Doing
About it

Quilted Health is building a model of care that centers around meeting the individual needs of each and every client, including those who have historically been underserved. This approach is at the core of our effort to improve outcomes for everyone.

Midwife-led care has lower rates of labor induction, cesarean birth, preterm birth, and overall improved satisfaction with the pregnancy and birth experience.7
