Online parenting platform for pregnancy and childcare BabyChakra has raised an undisclosed amount in series-A funding from Seattle-based RoundGlass.


The funds will be utilised for product development, strategic hires, and creating localised content.


“We saw a critical void for an online resource for childcare and parenting. It’s such a critical function, but no platform existed. We decided to solve this and build the first platform of its type, globally,” said Naiyya Saggi, CEO and Co-founder, BabyChakra.


BabyChakra went live in 2015 and provides information and resources on early childhood development and parenting.


With 500,000 mothers visiting regularly for advice and support, it provides information on conception, pregnancy, birth, and early childhood and has reviewed over 25,000 maternity and childcare services.


“At RoundGlass we want to help build platforms like BabyChakra that offer online resources and education for parents. I believe that digital health solutions can have a profound impact on India,” said Sunny Singh, Founder of RoundGlass.


Last year, the company had raised its seed funding from angel investors such as Mumbai Angels, the Singapore Angel network and Arihant Patni.

The startup claims to have 5 million registered visitors on a monthly basis.
