Two alumni of IIT-BHU have developed a health app to help pregnant women. This health app has been named ‘iMumz’, which got second rank in the health category across India in the prestigious self-reliant India app innovation challenge. Week-wise pregnancy and fetal health are told in a scientific way in this app, along with other measures for healthy children and safe delivery.
This iMumz app includes scientific week-to-week pregnancy and foetal care programs, includes stress-busting meditations, nutritional diet, baby bonding exercises, harmonising music, etc for a safe delivery and healthy baby.
The app looks at various medical, emotional, physical problems related to women’s health during pregnancy.
Both Ravi and Mayur started working to solve the problem at IIT-BHU in 2017 and gradually developed this innovative app under the guidance of their mentor Rajesh Jagasia, a senior meditation coach and an experienced CXO (Chief Experience Officer) trainer.
They were also inspired by Dr Narendra Malhotra, a gynaecologist, and Dr Jaideep Malhotra, an obstetrician.
They claimed that with the facility of live sessions with doctors every day, so far more than 125 doctors have answered more than 20,000 questions of pregnant women. This app is currently available in Hindi and English languages.
The App Innovation Challenge was launched by PM Narendra Modi on 4 July, which witnessed the participation of 6,940 tech entrepreneurs and start-ups from across the country.
The app also highlights ‘medical, emotional, physical’ problems related to women during pregnancy. Ravi and Mayur quit the lucrative salary job and used their intelligence to create an app that could help pregnant women.
Both started an effort to solve this problem at IIT-BHU in 2017 and developed this innovative app with the help of their mentor Rajesh Jagasia, who is a senior meditation coach and veteran Chief Experience Officer (CXO) trainer.
