You can use Maven to book unlimited coaching and educational virtual appointments with providers across more than 30 specialties, including OB-GYNs, mental health specialists, lactation consultants, doulas, and more.
You should continue to see your in-person provider. Maven provides additional support to your care as our providers include a range of specialists you might not have access to—from midwives and doulas to diabetes coaches. Your Maven Care Advocate can also help you find in-person, in-network providers, if needed.
Partners can sign up with their own account and benefit from the same provider appointments, articles, videos, and virtual classes. Those enrolled in the Maven program also receive content that’s specific to the partner experience.
Providers on Maven speak over 35 different languages, including Spanish, Mandarin, Hindi, French, German, Hebrew and many others. In addition, Maven offers simultaneous translation similar to what you might experience in a hospital or clinic if you didn’t speak the same language as the provider. Your Maven Care Advocate can help you navigate to the best providers to fit your needs.
Enrollment occurs digitally using a computer or mobile device. Start by activating your Maven membership.
