New York, NY – November 28, 2023 – Mother Goose Health, the leading integrated platform aligning
incentives and delivering value-based care to obstetrics through evidence-based clinical models,
today announced a partnership with SohoMD, a digital mental health services platform focused
on comprehensive psychiatric care.
In the US, 1 in 5 individuals will experience a mental health condition during pregnancy or in the
year after the birth, with higher rates experienced by women of low socioeconomic status or of racial-ethnic minority.
The Mother Goose Health partnership with SohoMD seamlessly integrates mental health
services within the maternity care pathway, providing women with mental health treatment that
they would otherwise fail to access.
Among those with perinatal mental health conditions, 20% will experience suicidal thoughts or
undertake acts of self-harm. Furthermore, maternal depression during pregnancy has been
associated with preterm births, stillbirths, low birth weight, and maternal morbidity including
perinatal complications, increased operative delivery, and postpartum depression.
Mother Goose Health’s unification of the fragmented maternity care system proactively
addresses disproportionate risk, care gaps and social determinants to help to improve health
outcomes for mother and child, and reduce costs by closing the gaps between provider, patient,
health plan and secondary providers.
“We are thrilled to partner with SohoMD to enable access to their unique mental health
platform so that we might provide holistic maternity care to all,” said Kenneth Levey MD,
MPH, chief executive officer, Mother Goose Health. “Poor perinatal mental health is a
common pregnancy-related morbidity, particularly amongst underserved populations, and by
completing the circle of mental healthcare from assessment to treatment within a completely
connected health management system, we can help to improve outcomes for previously
overlooked patient groups and reduce healthcare expenditure in those areas the burden is
“Even though mood and anxiety disorders are among the most common complications
associated with pregnancy, including in the year following the birth, maternal mental health
disorders are often underdiagnosed, under-treated, or go untreated completely,” said Dr.
Jacques Jospitre, chief executive officer and co-founder of SohoMD. “This partnership with
Mother Goose, whose services are laser-focused on the needs of new parents, will help us close
this gap between care and need and serve as a model for integrating mental health into a
maternity care ecosystem.”
