In Africa, an increasing number of women are balancing their professional careers with motherhood. This dual role often proves complicated for many, which has inspired tech entrepreneurs to create a solution.

Nigerian startup Preggify has developed an e-health solution designed to offer comprehensive care for expectant mothers throughout their pregnancy journey. Co-founded by Ifunanya Lilian Igweze and Daniel Temitayo in 2022, this Lagos-based enterprise envisions a world where pregnancy and childcare do not hinder women’s professional advancement.

"Preggify is a health platform that provides middle and high-income African women in their reproductive years with easy, affordable, and accessible maternal care. Our cutting-edge technology empowers women to access personalized medical support and resources, from pre-pregnancy to post-pregnancy, with confidence and ease," the startup states.

While Preggify does not offer a mobile app, it is accessible via a web browser. Users can register by providing personal information such as their first and last names, email address, phone number, date of birth, and gender. Following this step, they receive a one-time password (OTP) via email to log into the platform.

Preggify provides both a premium and a free version, where users can find support from a community of pregnant women or those who have experienced multiple pregnancies. The startup offers a digital space where career-oriented women can access tailored resources and support to balance motherhood and their professional lives.

The platform offers a variety of features, including a food journal, weekly live classes, pregnancy fitness sessions, support before and after cesarean sections, education on episiotomy care, breastfeeding assistance, and mental support. Preggify is also in the process of integrating healthcare professionals and facilitating virtual doctor appointments on its platform.
