Apple is highlighting one developer's mission to end maternal health inequity.
In a new post on Apple's Newsroom, the company is putting a spotlight on Poppy Seed Health and Simmone Taitt, its founder and CEO. The app, which is an "on-demand health advocacy app for birthing people providing pregnancy and postpartum care," is attempting to bring critical healthcare information to all.
After struggling to find medical, emotional, and mental health support during her first trimester, Taitt began to build the service herself.
Not only does that app serve a diverse group of people looking for support, but those who struggle to pay the membership fee can also get the service for free.
Taitt said that her experience building the service showed the "entire ecosystem coming together to make technology accessible."
