STAMFORD, Conn., April 25, 2018

STAMFORD, Conn., April 25, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- New parenthood is full of questions – especially as it relates to baby's health and wellbeing. Sometimes those questions arise when you are home with a little one, on vacation, or during the night. Recognizing the need for new parents to have easy, on-demand access to medical advice wherever they are, day or night, Philips Avent – the brand most recommended by moms worldwide* has launched a new telehealth feature provided by American Well in its popular uGrow parenting app that will easily connect parents with doctors and healthcare professionals.

The previously announced partnership between Philips and American Well – the leading U.S. telehealth provider that connects millions of consumers with care professionals through video visits – will enable users to gain remote access to a large database of providers through the Philips Avent uGrow app platform.

The uGrow app helps parents track their baby's development and get insights based on their development and routines. With the addition of telehealth technology provided by American Well to the uGrow app, parents can connect directly via video call to doctors and healthcare professionals, 24/7. The app will offer healthcare professionals specializing in children and adult health, as well as lactation consultants and mental health professionals. Telehealth is covered by many insurance plans or can be paid for out of pocket.

"At Philips, our mission is to make life better and easier for parents and their babies through meaningful innovations," said Brenda Kapner, Marketing Director at Philips. "We listened to what parents needed and evolved our uGrow parenting app to provide them with peace of mind knowing that they now have around the clock video access to healthcare providers with a touch of a button, from the comfort of their own home."

The Philips Avent uGrow app with telehealth provided by American Well is available for download from the App Store and Google Play.
