UK’s first online clinic for women Naytal bags £300K funding, launches after beta period
UK’s first online clinic Naytal offers women instant access to perinatal psychologists, who are focused on supporting women through their pregnancy and postnatal journey. Recently, Naytal has bagged €356K (nearly £300K) in a pre-seed funding, which was led by Fuel Ventures.
Launches after beta period
Naytal Co-founder Leila Thabet stated: “Women’s ante and postnatal healthcare needs and expectations have evolved, but the healthcare system that provides them is lagging behind. We’re more aware than ever before about the importance of taking care of our health, yet knowing where to turn to get timely advice and support from someone who knows what they’re talking about is a challenge at best, and near impossible at worst!”
She continued: “Lara and I were shocked by the level of support and specialist care we were able to access on our own health journeys through fertility, pregnancy and postnatally. And although our issues were different, what united our experiences was feeling confused, overwhelmed and unsure where to turn. With Naytal – we’re changing that.”
