Hi, We're Mina!

We allow parents to discover, schedule and pay for services when they need them most, and give providers a platform to optimize their business.

Our mission is to improve health outcomes around birth and babies by elevating and organizing the marketplace of birth work.

We're for Parents

What if you could find the care and answers you need without wrestling with search terms and wading through all the results? Imagine, all of the services you need at your fingertips!

We believe families should be informed without being overwhelmed. That’s why we built Mina.

We're for Providers

Whether you do home visits, video appointments, or have patients come to your office, we want new families to find you easily so you can get back to doing what you do best. 

We make it easy for you to increase the reach of your business and get matched with more parents.  A few minutes to set up your profile is all it takes!
