Who? Naytal was co-founded by Leila Thabet, a specialist in brand building and consumer engagement who has worked for ASOS and Sky; and Lara Russell-Jones, an entrepreneur who has previously worked at KPMG and PwC.
Why? Thabet and Russell-Jones say they are on a mission to to reinvent women’s healthcare for the digital age. “Lara and I were shocked by the level of support and specialist care we were able to access on our own health journeys through fertility, pregnancy and postnatally" Thabet said. "And although our issues were different, what united our experiences was feeling confused, overwhelmed and unsure where to turn. With Naytal - we’re changing that.”
Where? Naytal is currently only available in the UK, however users wishing to use the service overseas are advised to get in contact to see if they can be supported.
When? The digital healthcare platform launches today following a successful beta period.
They say: “We believe women shouldn’t have to suffer in unnecessary pain and silence due to reproductive health issues, as 80% of us do today" Thabet said. " That's why we’re excited to offer women direct access to the knowledge and support they need, when they need it, from healthcare experts who understand their unique health challenges. We believe that everyone should be able to access this kind of care conveniently and affordably.”
