– Oath Care, a young, four-person San Francisco-based startup, just raised $2m in seed funding from XYZ Ventures, General Catalyst, and Eros Resmini.
– The company is building a subscription-based mobile app that’s focused on improving the lives of new mothers by combining parents who have lots in common with healthcare specialists and moderators who can guide them in group chats, as well as one-on-one video calls.
– For $20 per month, Oath matches pregnant and postpartum moms in circles of up to 10 based on factors like stage of pregnancy, age of child, location and career so they can ask questions of each other, with the help of a trained moderator (who is sometimes a mother with older children).
