connecting mother and baby​​

heartbeat by heartbeat

our mission
Women are beautiful, powerful, strong creatures who have been consistently misrepresented and underserved in healthcare, and the force of mental health stigma hits them especially hard. We are a team of bioengineering undergraduates passionate about advocating and advancing maternal and neonatal health by implementing transformative technology to assist mothers through perinatal emotional challenges.

perinatal mental health

we are supporting individuals affected by emotional challenges before and after giving birth,
in particular, postpartum depression​ 

​Postpartum depression, more simply known as PPD, is a form of depression that occurs on average between two weeks to one year after a mother gives birth. Symptoms vary greatly and may include crying, irritability, or impaired sleep. Affecting a reported 10 to 20 percent of the world's population, this condition can result in a severe detachment between mother and baby. Such a lack of emotional connection may cause social and developmental risks for the child.​​
