Oath Care, a San Francisco, CA-based social company focused on healthcare, raised $2m in funding.
Backers included XYZ Venture Capital, General Catalyst, Muse Capital, and Eros Resmini, former CMO of Discord and managing partner of the Mini Fund.
The company will use funds to hire and accelerate product development in preparation for its public launch later this year.
Co-founded by Camilla Hermann, CEO, and Dr. Michelle Stephens, co-founder, pediatric clinician and research scientist in early childhood stress physiology Oath is building a social, community-based network and mobile app that combines intimate connections and shared parental experiences with healthcare specialist support and guidance through group chat and 1:1 video calls. Starting with small groups for moms, Oath’s technology intelligently matches women in “circles” of 6-10 women based on criteria such as stage of pregnancy/age of child, location, and career. Circles are led by a trained facilitator and provide the opportunity to ask questions of healthcare specialists or schedule consultations to address any issue along the pregnancy and early childhood journey.
Oath’s initial offering is targeted for expecting and new moms.
