Millie Raises $4M in Seed Funding


Millie, a Berkeley, CA-based new kind of maternity clinic, closed a $4M seed funding.

The round was led by TMV Ventures & BBG Ventures with participation from Venn Growth Partners, Looking Glass Capital, Learn Capital, Hustle Fund and other investors including Turner Novak, Michelle Kennedy of Peanut, and Tristan Walker of Walker & Company.

Co-founded by Anu Sharma (Chief Executive Officer), Talia Borgo(Clinical Director), and Sarah Reynolds (Chief Technical Officer), with clinical leadership from Amy Kane (Medical Director & OB-GYN), Millie guides people from 48 hours after a positive pregnancy test to one year postpartum with a collaborative, patient-centered team that supports individuals’ entire pregnancy journeys. The service pairs the patient with a care force comprised of an OB-GYN, a midwife, and a doula, ensuring individuals are wholly supported through the physical, mental, emotional, and social changes experienced during pregnancy and parenthood.

Features include proactive medical insight, comprehensive knowledge of the patient’s needs, accessible services extended by technology, and an expert team. The services are amplified through its digital app which provides around-the-clock messaging with providers and a social network. The app-enabled technology also gives Millie patients mental health support, nutrition counseling, lactation support and digital health checks. In addition to virtual and in-clinic monitoring, Millie also provides patients with at-home monitoring tools, such as blood pressure cuffs, to promote early detection of complications and offers three visits, the first of which happens at the patient’s home within one week postpartum.  

On September 26th, the company will also open its physical clinic next to the Alta Bates Campus in Berkeley, CA.
