Welcome to the next generation of Virtual Care

We are here to support you with personalized coaching and psychotherapy for maternal well-being from conception to birth and beyond. #1 Complication in Pregnancy/Postpartum is mood disorders stress, anxiety, depression.

The American Psychological Association recommends Virtual Reality (VR) use for mental health. There has been an abundance of research on the usefulness of VR therapy on anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and stress management. Because VR allows a patient to experience and move around in real environments, it can be used to teach coping mechanisms for certain stressful events. By being in a controlled setting, VR technology allows therapists to monitor their patients and offer coaching throughout anxiety-inducing experiences.

Vital Start Health has successfully completed initial feasibility study at a leading health institution and a coaching pilot demonstrating similar results for parents in the maternity journey affected by mood & anxiety disorders. Being in a VR scenario allows a person to be fully engrossed in their therapy sessions by connecting with their emotions more deeply because they are in such a real experience
