Bloomlife, a San Francisco, CA-based digital health company focused on healthcare for moms and babies, closed a $4m seed funding round.
Backers included Marc Benioff, Efficient Capacity, LanzaTech Ventures, MeusInvest, Hanmi IT, The Chernin Group, Kapor Capital, and Act One Ventures.
The company, which has raised $6M in total funding, intends to use the funds to commercialize its first product.
Founded in 2014 by Eric Dy and Julien Penders, Bloomlife is developing a smart pregnancy wearable that automatically detects and tracks contractions which expectant moms can visualize on their smartphone to better understand their body throughout the third trimester.
To advance its solutions, the company has formed strategic partnerships with the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF)’s Preterm Birth Initiative and the research teams at Stanford.
Bloomlife also has offices in Belgium.
