Cartula Janani Pregnancy App Marks 1 Lakh Downloads Within 3 Months In India

MUMBAI,India, Feb 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Pregnancy is, perhaps, the biggest and one of the most exciting milestones of a woman's life, but is also is a life-changing period and a matter of death and survival.

Due to a lack of healthcare and appropriate facilities, hundreds of women lose their lives during childbirth and thousands of newborn children breathe their last breath within the first few hours of being born.

Maternal mortality is a rising issue, especially in the rural parts of the country, even though most of these deaths can be prevented with simple measures such as access to skilled care and expert advice.

Mr. Vimal Prakash, the CEO of Cartula Health India Pvt Ltd, recognized the problems and shortcomings in the Indian healthcare niche and came up with a simple yet effective solution to bring down the maternal mortality rates; thus was created the Cartula Janani App.

After being designed and developed, the Cartula team visited remote villages, slum regions, and other backward areas across the country, to educate the people about the app, its usage, and its benefits. With smartphones becoming one of the essentials, and with the availability of at least one smartphone in almost every Indian household, Cartula is able to make health care and telemedicine more accessible to those in dire need.

The app is extremely easy to use and delivers an array of offerings - for women along the paths of fertility, pregnancy & new motherhood - such as expert consultation via video calls, health guide, diet plans, exercise, daily reminders, and more. It comes in 7+ regional languages which makes it easier for the rural women to interact with the experts and follow their instructions accurately to ensure the good health of their babies and themselves.

The app recorded nearly 1 lakh downloads in the short span of three months since its launch. It has been endorsed by several stalwarts, social workers, political figures, and renowned personalities across the nation.

Recently, it was endorsed by Honorable Shri. N Gokul Krishnan, Member of Parliament (Rajya Sabha), representing the Union Territory of Puducherry; Shri Navin Jain, First Person of Agra and the present Chairman of the Mayor's Council of India; Shri Chaudhry Udaibhan Singh, Minister of State, MSME, Export Promotion Department, Uttar Pradesh, and the Representative of Fatehpur Sikri Assembly Constituency; Dr. GS Dharmesh, Minister of State, Social Welfare Department, Government of Uttar Pradesh and the Representative of Agra Cantt Assembly Seat; Shri Mahesh Goyal, Representative of the Kheragarh Constituency, Uttar Pradesh Legislative Assembly; and Shri Ram Pratap Singh Chauhan, Representative of Etmadpur Constituency, Uttar Pradesh Legislative Assembly.
