About us

Pomelo Care is a multi-disciplinary team of clinicians, engineers and problem solvers who are passionate about improving care for moms and babies. We are transforming outcomes for pregnant people and babies with evidence-based pregnancy and newborn care at scale. Our technology-driven care platform enables us to engage patients early, conduct individualized risk assessments for poor pregnancy outcomes, and deliver coordinated, personalized virtual care throughout pregnancy, NICU stays, and the first postpartum year. We measure ourselves by reductions in preterm births, NICU admissions, c-sections and maternal mortality; we improve outcomes and reduce healthcare spend.

  • Develop communications and engagement plans to share the impact of Pomelo’s services for patients with state agencies and key stakeholders
  • Collaborate with Pomelo partnerships, marketing, clinical, operations, and data teams to drive a policy engagement roadmap that supports Pomelo’s growth and success initiatives
