Last week the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a new report citing that preventable cases of maternal mortality increased from 3-in-5 to 4-in-5, making over 80% of deaths avoidable.

Modelo Health™, the world’s first pregnancy app for Inclusive Care™, is a ground-breaking solution to this escalating maternal health crisis.
