Problem

Expecting mothers often face lack of practical information and guidance about their pregnancy, especially with only approximately and unevenly distributed 3,500 OB/GYN nationwide for around 5,000,000 and counting expecting mothers every year (1.7% annual growth), the first 280 days of life that are crucial for human being are at many times not monitored and prepared properly. As a result, WHO puts Indonesia at the top 9th of country with highest Low Birth Weight (LBR) where 15% of Indonesian newborns mainly suffer from low nutrition with weight <2.5kg, a rise from 10% in 2014.

Solution

Sehati offers a mobile application that accompany the mothers going through their pregnancy journey. The application provides standardised guidance, pregnancy tips, and booking platform for health checkups with hospitals, doctors and healthcare institutions.
