I grew up in humble Madras in the 90s, and I still remember my single mother's body, thin and tiny. She looked weak, and when I grew up a little, I found many women around me who looked similar, frail and tired. I thought it was a sign of poverty.
My mother worked in textile as a salesgirl, I went to the shop directly from school to be with my mom, and there was an owner; she was rich and looked well-fed. I found her highly unhealthy; she suffered from obesity which I couldn't understand at that age, but I figured out money has nothing to do with being healthy, and I thought the problem is with the country.
Years passed, and in 2019, I worked in a US healthcare company. I talked to the teen pregnant girls; they're 13 and already a parent; as a product manager, I couldn't stand in their shoes and understand their reason.
That's precisely the point I figured out Women's health is under-served worldwide. Rich, Poor, Indians, Americans, EVERY woman is going through a different health issue, and not many are worried about it!
It is growing at a 22% higher rate.
Then one year from that I quit my job. Here I am with Mind & Mom and 100,000 women on the platform.
Would you like to join my mission to make women have better health? Let's talk.
