About the initiative

Amakomaya addresses the health care scenario of pregnant women in rural settings by introducing videos of the changes of the foetus inside the body through an android application.

Rural women rarely have access or willingness to go for health check ups during their pregnancy. This application helps them understand the changes they are going to experience and the necessary care needed while emphasizing the need for routine doctor consult.
