Strategic Focus:
Target Beneficiaries:
New and expectant youth mothers, new born babies, millennial parents in urban and peri-urban areas.
Type of Solution:

A mobile app that connects new and expectant mothers to nurses for in home postpartum checkups and support.


Teheca seeks to reduce the high infant and maternal mortality rate among new and expectant mothers through increasing uptake of postnatal among new mothers.

We connect mothers to nurses for personalised in home postnatal checkups and support through availing useful maternal health information, products and services so as to reduce high mortality rates of mothers and newborns in developing countries.

We believe that increasing uptake of postnatal care services will allow for timely identification and referral of life threatening complications that arise in new mothers after discharge.

Over 80% of postnatal care happens outside the walls of the hospital, hence the need to move postnatal care services closer to mothers and outside the walls of the hospital. Postnatal care should be personalised and mother centered because each birth is unique and special.
