PregBuddy ensures timely and easy delivery of high-quality medical care through their continuum platform between doctors and their expecting patients,  through their journey-from preconception to the early years of motherhood.  The platform offers personalised healthcare through peer support, organised information, expert access for nutrition, fitness and emotional advice, in addition, to affordable access to essential products and services.

PregBuddy was co-founded in October 2016 by IIT graduates Sivareena and Subhadeep Mondal. The startup has already seen a traction of over 60,000 users, and has been growing organically by 20%, month-over-month.

Commenting on the investment, lead IAN investor Pradeep K Jaisingh said, “Technology is playing a defining role in today’s healthcare system both for enhancing quality and improving access to healthcare in India. PregBuddy has emerged as an exciting new platform for both caregivers and patients alike, leading to great improvements in patient satisfaction, reduced costs and improved health outcomes."

The startup was selected by Google for its first cohort of Solve for India and its Launchpad Build programme.
