Mother Goose Health Launches Breastfeeding Support with Strategic Partnerships

Increasing access to needed breastfeeding support and services by reducing friction in the system for patients and providers

Mother Goose Health, a trailblazing digital maternal health platform, has launched its groundbreaking lactation service in collaboration with Nest Collaborative, the premier virtual lactation support platform, and The Breastfeeding Shop, providers of high-quality, comfortable breast pumps.  The collaboration now provides new mothers with easier access to lactation support to help them achieve their individualized breastfeeding goals.

According to the CDC’s 2022 Breastfeeding Report Card, breastfeeding can help protect both mother and child against certain illnesses and disease, but outside of the birthing setting, breastfeeding rates decline and additional support is required to facilitate a family’s breastfeeding goals. Working with NEST Collaborative and their network of International Board-Certified Lactation Consultants, Mother Goose Health provides access to evidence-based lactation support throughout the entire duration of breastfeeding.

Through their partnership with Nest Collaborative and The Breastfeeding Shop, Mother Goose Health are transforming the breastfeeding support landscape as users can now seamlessly order health plan covered breast pumps and supplies, and access top-tier support from International Board-Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLCs) across all 50 states, from within the Mother Goose Health platform.

Dr. Anya Rose, MD, and board-certified Obstetrician/Gynecologist at Rose Women’s Health in Arcadia, California, said: “Breastfeeding has been shown to help prevent various illnesses and diseases within both mothers and babies. Mother Goose Health allows us to more easily support our patients in achieving their lactation goals. With this new partnership we are able to provide extra services that many families would not ordinarily or easily have access to.”

Dr Kenneth Levey, MPH, chief executive officer, Mother Goose Health said: “Within our platform, we have created an ecosystem of maternity care that facilitates patients’ access to all essential maternal health needs and services. By removing barriers to care and support, we are optimizing the health and outcomes for both mothers and their children.”
