How are [M]otherboard’s different services priced?
Why can’t I choose more than 15 options for my [M]otherboard?
Studies have found that if parents have more than 15 options their satisfaction rates actually go down. Birth plans aren’t intended to be a laundry list contract of everything you want. They are meant to communicate your most important wishes. [M]otherboards get back to the heart of what birth “plans” were meant to be.
What kinds of things are developers building next?
We are building dashboards for providers and hospitals to be able to securely message their patients, add feedback to our content, and bring up a family's Motherboard at the hospital when they check in in labor. Provider buy-in is incredibly important to lasting, meaningful change.
