‘I Love 9 Months' bagged Destination Kerala Startup Award 2017 in the 'Woman Champ' category
Anjali Raj, the COO of the company, is a Lamaze-Certified Childbirth Educator as well as a Lactation Consultant. ‘’I used to work with hospitals, taking classes on antenatal care. Among, say, a group of 100 people who visit hospitals, only two or three can turn up during weekends to attend these classes. So we thought why not digitise our service so that people can access it from their homes,’’ says Anjali. The App offers everything a woman should know as she prepares to embrace motherhood which includes information on pre-pregnancy, pregnancy and post-pregnancy periods. ‘’It does not end with the birth of a child, it goes much beyond that,’’ adds Ganga Raj, Director Wellness, I Love 9 Months App. A fitness consultant like Ganga can offer many tips which could help pregnant women to keep their mind and body healthy. Explaining the concept of ‘Trigunathmika’, the central idea of the App which indicates three gunas - physical, emotional and spiritual, she says these are crucial for the wellbeing of the baby and parents.
