Babymigo is a fast-growing parenting community for Africa. They are building the most trusted support network for every mum and mums-to-be irrespective of their social status or geographic location.

Things mums do on Babymigo includes asking questions and getting fast answers from experienced mums and medical experts, group chats with experts, find mums in the same age group and city, find books and reviews of hyperlocal maternity and childcare services, offline events, meetups and antenatal class.
For the first time in Africa, Babymigo is bringing a massive scale to the maternal and childcare industry as it has never been done before using scalable mobile technologies.

In 2018, Time magazine named Babymigo as one of 50 Genius Companies inventing the future alongside Google, Airbnb, Clue and Pinterest.

At Babymigo, they believe 400 million mothers in Africa deserve access to inclusive support system to help make informed decisions during pregnancy and parenthood. This is a fundamental human right. Babymigo understands that, which is why they are committed to being your most trusted ally in your pursuit of health and well-being.

This belief is what unifies them at Babymigo. The lack of access to affordable healthcare and trusted support network for expecting mums and parents is a large and growing problem, making their mission that much more important.

Their vision to help empower millions of parents to raise a healthy family and thereby reducing avoidable maternal and infant mortality by 45% is ongoing.
