Dr Jaideep Malhotra, senior gynaecologist and Ex-FOGSI president says “We are seeing a huge demand for an iMumz equivalent post pregnancy from our users. We will be releasing the iMumz app for new mothers and fathers on the 20th Jan, 2021 in India. This will take into account postpartum depression - the difficult period for mothers and will also have Baby Growth Program - playful activities for brain development, movement for the newborn.
