A Social Community of Healthcare Support
Co-founded by Hermann alongside entrepreneur and doctor Michelle Stephens, Oath seeks to redefine the way new mothers find support. The San Francisco-based startup company unites expert guidance with a strong sense of community through its social healthcare app.
Oath begins by creating Circles. The startup company forms Circles by matching parents using criteria including the stage of pregnancy or age of the child, location, and career. Circles built by the healthcare business consist of 6 to 10 parents, as well as a trained facilitator with her own children and a wealth of personal experience to share with members. The facilitator ensures a safe space for members to share their questions, challenges, and parenting victories.
The startup business also connects Circles with healthcare providers, including family and marriage therapists, nutritionists, pediatric nurses, and more. Experts can easily visit Circles to provide guidance and answer any nagging questions.
“Oath has tapped into an essential need, with an abundance of quality, highly vetted resources that deliver exactly the experience people crave in a very simple, direct and personal manner,” said Chauncey Hamilton, Partner at XYZ and Oath member.
Investors are Backing Parenting Startups
Oath is tapping into a lucrative market as investors continue to show support for startups in the business of making parents’ lives easier. Peanut, a social networking app for mothers, has raised $17 million from investors, and startup company Cleo has garnered over $80 million to provide employers with support programs for working families. Oath has positioned itself in a rapidly expanding industry.
