Anish Sebastian, CEO & Co-Founder
At Babyscripts we envision a world in which maternal death is eliminated – where no woman suffers complications from unmonitored risk, during or after pregnancy – where getting pregnant doesn’t mean risking your life. Here we’re committed to providing the technology and tools that enable seamless collaboration between moms, their doctors, health systems, and payers to make that vision a near-term reality. We believe our technology can:
- Educate and empower women on their best decisions for a healthy pregnancy
- Connect women to clinical and social resources at the right time, in the right place, to improve their outcomes
- Detect moments of crisis through monitoring and engage medical intervention to save lives, and
- Generate vast amounts of critical data that, through research and smart data science, create novel insights that propel the industry to risk-specific prenatal care.
Our mission for diversity & inclusion
This year in the United States, 50,000 women will suffer from maternal health complications, and 700 women will die from them. The majority of these outcomes are tied to barriers of opportunity, race, income, and geography — and disproportionately affect minority and low-income women.
Founded by an immigrant and the son of immigrants, Babyscripts has always taken diversity personally. We know that in the business of improving lives, empathy is key — and that empathy is grounded in diversity, equity, and inclusion.
To improve outcomes, we need to understand the challenges facing vulnerable mothers and babies in our society today. That’s why at Babyscripts we’ve gathered a team of individuals from different racial, educational, geographic and cultural backgrounds to build our solutions. We’ve assembled a group of advisors from the same variety of backgrounds to keep us sensitive to the diverse needs of those we serve. And we’ve continuously leaned on the strengths of our differences to deliver the best in care to our mothers — to call on diverse perspectives, skills, and experience to build solutions that uniquely respond to the needs of every woman.
And so we never forget it, we’ve put it right there in our mission statement: Better pregnancies for ALL.

Achieve Your Full Potential
Employee feedback and innovation is welcome and encouraged at Babyscripts. This was an unspoken understanding in the early days of our startup, and as we’ve grown, we’ve created deliberate structures to make sure that it is an intentional and integral part of our company culture. Our employees know that they don’t simply have the space to innovate, but that their ideas can and have been realized.
As a mission-oriented startup, our success hinges on a drive that must be fueled by more than desire for financial gain. We choose our employees as much for their commitment to our mission as for their skill in executing it, and we reflect that commitment in our company policies. Our parental leave at Babyscripts is three months, which is equal to and greater than much bigger companies, and our workplace — in-person and now remote — welcomes and accommodates the needs of our working parent employees, of which we have many.
"Remote working has allowed me to find a healthy work/life balance that I haven't experienced with other companies - and the people I get to work with make it all that much better. Open and honest communication is encouraged and respected. With everyone striving for the same goal to enhance and reshape maternal healthcare, connecting and collaborating across teams is remarkably smooth (and motivating)!"
"Since day one, Babyscripts has been invested in my personal and professional growth, and that is true across the board. I love working for a company that promotes from within, that values employee feedback and input, and rewards and encourages innovation from its team. The work is fast-paced with high-rewards, and I truly feel ownership in the product and the mission."
"Real people matter to Babyscripts, as does getting things done the right way. Every day I open up my laptop to do work, I am rewarded by what we do, AND how we do it, AND why we do it. Babyscripts really cares about who they hire, which means that everyone on the team can really be trusted."
