Full-time, part-time, and hourly Amazonians are now eligible for free virtual family-building care to support preconception, egg freezing, IUI and IVF, adoption, and surrogacy
Maven Clinic, the world’s largest virtual clinic for women’s and family health, announced it has partnered with Amazon to expand Amazon’s family-building support program across the world to 50 countries outside the US and Canada, and is available to full-time, part-time and hourly employees. Working together, Maven and Amazon will give Amazon employees and their partners free access, via Maven, to board-certified reproductive endocrinologists (fertility doctors), obstetricians, gynecologists, nutritionists, mental health providers, adoption coaches, and other care providers.
With Maven, Amazon employees can access free local support through a Care Advocate who will help them navigate their fertility and family-building journey, provide referrals to high-quality clinics or agencies, and advise them on local family-building guidelines. Virtual care is available through video or message chat with doctors, nurses, coaches, and other experts across 35 languages.
“We’re delighted to support Amazonians around the world as they plan and grow their families,” said Kate Ryder, founder and CEO of Maven Clinic. “There are too many barriers to care in healthcare systems that were not built around the needs of women and families, and Amazon is cutting through that complexity by making it exceptionally easy for their employees to access high-quality, personalized care in their own language at any hour of the day or night.”
“Maven is an employee-friendly benefit that takes the guesswork out of the family-building process, which can often be confusing and overwhelming,” said Lian Neeman, global director of benefits at Amazon. “Our benefits are designed to care for all our employees’ needs, and that means ensuring they have the resources they need to live their best lives, regardless of their personal circumstances. Maven’s approach to fertility and family building supports our employees around the world and is tailored to each person.”
“It’s great to see the addition of Maven to our benefits, which means that more Amazon families have access to world-class family-building resources,” said Heather Mellish, global president of Families@, Amazon’s family-focused affinity group. “This sort of support across the entire definition of the word ‘family’ is exactly what a company should provide for its employees.”
United Kingdom-based Amazon employee Sarah Wyper said of her Maven experience, “This is by far the easiest access to services and specialists that I have experienced in the seven years of my family-building journey. It feels so safe to know that I can talk to someone when I need to and not have to wait weeks or months for a next appointment to come around. I feel very supported.”
