Online pregnancy and postnatal clinic launches with £300,000 pre-seed funding

Naytal, the UK’s first online clinic that gives women instant access to health experts including midwives, breastfeeding consultants, psychologists and women’s health physios for support with all their pregnancy and postnatal needs, has launched in the UK today following a successful beta period.

Naytal is also the UK’s first platform to offer women access to perinatal psychologists, who are focused on supporting women through their pregnancy and postnatal journey.

Backed with £300k in pre-seed funding, led by Fuel Ventures, Naytal was cofounded by Leila Thabet and Lara Russell-Jones who are on a mission to reinvent women’s healthcare for the digital age.

“Women’s ante and postnatal healthcare needs and expectations have evolved, but the healthcare system that provides them is lagging behind”, said co-founder, Leila Thabet.

“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!

“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.”
