Amazon has announced a partnership with Maven Clinic to provide fertility and family planning services to eligible employees across 50 countries outside of the U.S. and Canada. The offering, available through Maven Clinic, will grant Amazon employees and their partners access to a range of services, including reproductive endocrinologists, OB-GYNs, nutritionists, and mental health providers. Maven Clinic, valued at over $1 billion, specializes in making reproductive healthcare more accessible, with 15 million lives under its management.
This move reflects Amazon’s commitment to supporting employees’ reproductive health and well-being. The partnership comes at a time when corporate interest in women’s health technology (femtech) is growing, driven by the increasing need for fertility and family planning benefits. The U.S. has the highest maternal mortality rate among industrialized countries, and companies like Maven Clinic aim to address these healthcare challenges.
After the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, Maven Clinic experienced a surge in companies seeking healthcare opportunities for pregnant employees and travel benefits, including those related to abortion procedures. This partnership aligns with Amazon’s goal of providing comprehensive support to its employees, promoting employee loyalty, and fostering an equitable workplace.
The growing femtech industry is expected to be worth $1.186 trillion by 2027. With a significant number of couples struggling to conceive and the demand for comprehensive family planning benefits increasing, offerings like those provided by Maven Clinic can have a positive impact on employee well-being and satisfaction.
