What is a Care Team?

Each Care Team is made up of a stage-based specialist, mental health specialist and parent guide. Oath will match you with a team, or let you choose each individual based on your preferences.

Stage-Based Specialist

This member of your team is a medical expert who will evolve with you based on stage: fertility, pregnancy, postpartum and beyond. They will answer health and behavior related questions with personalized support.

Mental Health Specialist

The journey to and throughout motherhood includes many ups and downs. Your mental health specialist will help support you through all sorts of emotions, changing relationships, and the daily difficulties that may come.

Parent Guide

Your guide is a fellow mom who’s a bit further along in the journey and can help to provide a supportive ear, offer encouragement, and seek out resources to help you on your journey.
