"Age-old empathies and lessons to
enhance healing in today's complex
healthcare environment"

Maternl concerns the human dimension of healthcare. Maternl is mission driven to address the unmet needs for all in need of comfort, healing and solace in particular, mothers and families who have experienced infertility, miscarriages, stillbirths and neonatal deaths.

By using original and personalized programs, tools and forms of expression implicit in symbolic language; poetry, prose and verse, Maternl shares age-old empathies and lessons to enhance healing in today's complex healthcare environment.

Maternl acknowledges that there remains inexorable suffering which accompanies tribulations not only from inevitable limits of new medical technologies but from pervasive disparities which exist to deny all to have access to and to be recipient of one standard of care; disparities defined by the social determinants of health, limited or no access to care, unconscious bias, lack of advocacy and "avoidance and dismissal rather than involvement and immersion".

"Leave prejudice behind to fade into vapors
as common as fog and plant roots
to bond our humanhood"

Maternl is a program of Hygeia Health Systems. The signature image of the Maternl logo is symbolic of Hygeia, the mythological Greek goddess of health and healing and represents the original and unique programs of Hygeia Health Systems, LLC.
