Company Description


Mae is a venture-backed digital health solution on a mission to improve the health and quality of life for Black mothers, babies, and those who love them. Mae has created a space where complete digital care meets culturally-competent on-the-ground support. We address access gaps and bolster physical and emotional well-being through continuous engagement, risk assessment, early symptom awareness, and a community-led model of support for our users.

Digital solutions to address cultural deficits in care are at the forefront of femtech innovation and Mae is quickly gaining traction with healthcare payers as a viable solution to address the implicit, explicit, and structural biases that hinder equitable maternal health. In addressing whole-person care and focusing on self-advocacy, education, and community, we seek to improve the outcomes for Black mothers, while also reducing clinical costs of care, at impactful scale.
