Amazon partners with Maven Clinic to offer reproductive care to employees in 50 countries

Maven Clinic and Amazon are joining forces to offer fertility and family-building support to Amazon employees in 50 countries outside the U.S. and Canada. 

The program will be available to full-time, part-time and hourly Amazon workers, reportedly reaching more than 1 million eligible employees. They and their partners will have free access to board-certified reproductive endocrinologists, obstetricians, gynecologists, nutritionists, mental health providers, adoption coaches and other care providers through Maven.

“We’re delighted to support Amazonians around the world as they plan and grow their families," Kate Ryder, founder and CEO of Maven Clinic, said in a press release. “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.”

With Maven, a virtual health clinic and benefits platform, Amazon employees can also access free local support through a care advocate who will help them navigate their fertility and family-building journey. That care advocate can provide referrals to high-quality clinics or agencies and advise employees on local family-building guidelines. Virtual care is available through video or message chat with Maven’s arsenal of experts across 35 languages. 

“Maven is an employee-friendly benefit that takes the guesswork out of the family-building process, which can often be confusing and overwhelming,” Lian Neeman, global director of benefits at Amazon, said in the announcement. The benefits are intended to care for all employees’ needs, she went on, and Maven’s approach offers tailored care for each person. 

Maven is now offered as a free benefit to Amazon employees and their partners in the following countries:

  • Europe: Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Iceland, Poland, Portugal, Norway, Republic of Serbia, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, U.K.
  • Asia/Pacific: Australia, India, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam
  • Latin America: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Peru
  • Middle East and Africa: Bahrain, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Kenya, Kuwait, Mauritius, Morocco, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Turkey, United Arab Emirates

Earlier this year, Maven bought London-based digital health company Naytal to fuel its expansion in the U.K. and Europe. The deal aimed to enhance Maven’s ability to serve its growing membership in the U.K. and gives the company a partner deeply embedded in the region, Ryder told Fierce Healthcare. As of March 2023, Maven managed the care of 15 million patients.
