Mahmee Raises $3M To Help Safeguard Moms & Babies During the Prenatal & Postpartum Period
Mahmee (mahmee.com), a data-driven maternal and infant health tech company building the missing digital infrastructure to connect the maternal health industry and prevent critical gaps in care, announced today a $3M investment from Mark Cuban, Serena Williams (through Serena Ventures). The round is led by ArlanWasHere Investments, with support from Revolution’s Rise of the Rest Seed Fund. They join previous investors Cross Culture Ventures, Acumen America, The Helm, Backstage Capital, Bumble Fund, Pipeline Angels, and others.
Mahmee links mom and baby’s health history and data, proactively engages, checks on and monitors patients through “maternity coaches” and escalates concerns to doctors so that mom and baby’s care plan stays up to date and critical red flags aren’t missed. It does this through a HIPAA-secure, online dashboard available to new and expecting parents and their medical providers.
“In the maternity healthcare process, on the surface there are generally three or four people involved: the mother, the baby, and each of their physicians. What we don’t see are the many other people helping them: nurses, lactation consultants, midwives, nutritionists, therapists, doulas, home health aids, social workers, and more,” said Melissa Hanna, CEO and Co-Founder of Mahmee. “And this industry is lacking the IT infrastructure needed to connect these professionals from different organizations to each other, and to follow and monitor patients across practices and health systems. This missing element creates gaps in care. Mahmee is the glue that connects the care ecosystem and closes the gaps.”
“Mahmee’s mission is to increase access to comprehensive care for all mothers and babies,” said Linda Hanna. “We work as an extension of the care team. In doing that, we help providers listen to mothers, better understand their needs, and stay one step ahead of medical crises.”
“I am incredibly excited to invest and partner with Mahmee, a company that personifies my firm’s investment philosophy,” said Serena Williams, founder and CEO of Serena Ventures. “Given the bleak data surrounding maternal death and injury rates, I believe that it is absolutely critical right now to invest in solutions that help protect the lives of moms and babies. Mahmee’s data-driven approach is the right solution to one of the most significant problems in the system: that of fragmented care.”
