Who We Are
At HelpMum, our mission is to help provide health information to pregnant women and newborn babies that keep them healthy and safe in ALL communities including underserved and deprived communities.
To become Africa's leading mobile healthcare(mHealth) service provider before the year 2020.
To see a world free of maternal and infant death.
According to UNICEF “Every single day, Nigeria loses about 2,300 children under five and 145 women of childbearing age. This makes the country the second largest contributor to the under–five and maternal mortality rate in the world.” Every 10 minutes, one woman dies on account of pregnancy or childbirth in Nigeria.
Also the deaths of newborn babies in Nigeria represent a quarter of the total number of deaths of children under-five. The majority of these occur within the first week of life, mainly due to complications during pregnancy and delivery reflecting the intimate link between newborn survival and the quality of maternal care. Of Course these deaths are preventable.
HelpMum is a social enterprise birthed with the mission to reduce maternal and infant mortality in Nigeria.
Using the power of mobile technology, we deliver lifesaving health information to pregnant women on their mobile phones. Such information ranges from antenatal care date and immunization sessions reminders, zoonosis awareness and vaccination schedules for the new born babies. We help pregnant women and new mothers ease stress and provide them with health information using innovative mobile technologies. We also develop basic, inexpensive kits to help mothers and newborns avoid acquiring infections during childbirth in underserved communities.
Simply put, without HelpMum , I won't have discovered how significant somethings I have always considered trivial are to my pregnancy. What more can I say than a BIG THANK YOU!
Only me understands the significant impact of this service for my wife. We have had misunderstanding over her nonchalance towards antenatal care in the past but I am most delighted today as I don't have to discuss these issues no more Your reminders do the magic.
