Moving maternal healthcare forward is a shared responsibility that we all care deeply about

Why pregnancy, birth and postpartum?

The inequities and insufficiencies in care quality are particularly significant during these key stages due to multiple factors including: discrimination, historical and structural racism, strained resources, lack of coordination, and other social determinants of overall health.

We work directly with hospitals, providers and health insurance plans who want to improve maternal health outcomes and reduce costs, but are limited in their capacity to address the multiple drivers of poor maternal health, including level of service, cultural understanding, and logistical/personal needs of patients.

Cayaba Care is committed to helping members not only have resourced pregnancies, positive births, healthy postpartum periods, but also dignified and positive pregnancy journeys that take into account their overall physical, mental, and emotional health for the long term.


What is the current state of maternal health in the United States? 

Historical solutions in maternal health have not been effective, and the results speak for themselves. In the United States:

  • The annual cost of preterm births in the healthcare system is $26 billion.
  • More than 700 women die of pregnancy-related complications each year and over two-thirds of these deaths are preventable
  • 24% of patients receive inadequate prenatal care.
  • The rate of maternal morbidity has doubled in the last few decades, and is also double that of most other developed countries.
