Hela Health is committed to helping women of all ages get the information and resources needed to make informed decisions for their health and wellness. Our experts and team have been closely monitoring the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and staying up to date on key guidance from leading medical societies including the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and World Health Organization, American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG), and the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM).
We are compiling basic information, FAQS, and general support, all based on the latest evidence available. As the information and guidelines change, we will be updating these resources.
During this time, we are opening the Hela Health platform to all women, at no cost and regardless of whether your employer offers the benefit. On the platform you can take health and wellness classes on a variety of topics, access exclusive discounts on women’s health products and services, and sign up for live, video peer support groups by topic and lifestage. To sign up, visit helahealth.io and share the link with your colleagues, neighbors, family, and friends who might also need support.
