Meet Trailblazer Sigalit Marmorstein

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sigalit Marmorstein.

Sigi Marmorstein is a Telehealth Consultant with over 65+ Successful Telehealth Implementation projects. Her role as a Telehealth Consultant is the culmination of a 20-year career in health care spanning employers such as Davita, Kaiser Permanente, USC, Adventist Health and West Coast University. Sigi has years of experience in the health care industry as an emergency room provider, operations manager, project management, business owner as well as academia. Consistently throughout her diverse career, she remained devoted to finding solutions to improve patient access to care using health technologies and have won several awards for such programs. Her latest venture BabyLiveAdvice is a social enterprise that was meant to support families and reduce maternal-child morbidity and mortality through education and support.

She is recognized in several publications and a recurring invited speaker on Telehealth at key conferences. She serves on the Nursing advisory board at HRSA, member of the AANP, CANP and the California Action Coalition and still moonlight in ER as a Nurse Practitioner.

“I started Baby out of my own experience as a mother. I was a NICU/Peds nurse when I first became a mother and a nurse practitioner with my second. Although I was educated and receiving care at Kaiser. My boys and I had gone to harsh labor experiences, and both ended up in NICU. I remember dealing with my pregnancies and later with motherhood with much anxiety and stress. Reading all I could read, asking a lot of questions and needing much more questions answered. As a Nurse and a Nurse practitioner, I met with a mom who were less knowledgeable and had little or no access to care and I saw that they suffered like me. I started “baby” in hope that I can solve their problems. Through demonstration projects and pilots, I found out that my assumptions were right and that BLA can increase access to care, reduce adverse health outcomes and help women and families better cope with pregnancy and parenthood.”

Has it been a smooth road?
Women entrepreneurship is difficult. I am a mother of three boys who require my attention and require lots of support from me. Same time I got to maintain my income and my household while I am working all hours of the day and night to push my company forward. It takes a lot of dedication, hard work and long hours to make your dream a reality.

We’d love to hear more about BabyLiveAdvice, LLC.
As a tenured nurse practitioner and medical provider working in many different clinical settings in Los Angeles, I discovered the power of Telehealth, in removing barriers to care access, and identified the overwhelming need to assist mothers/parents facing the challenges of caring for infants/toddlers. My newest venture is a perfect marriage of technology and need.

There is extensive technology behind this site, including a virtual clinic and an application that can be downloaded from any phone device or accessed through any computer. This site can support women at risk, single mothers, teenage moms, homeless mothers, and others. It is accessible, available and affordable. All providers on the site are licensed clinicians (and mothers) from all clinical and cultural backgrounds.

Do you recommend any apps, books or podcasts that have been helpful to you?
