For generations, conversations about fertility have been centered on a single question: “Are you trying?”.
From our own experiences, and those of people around us, we realized that women are being kept away from their own fertility health until they're actively trying to get pregnant. That’s simply not good enough, and it made us wonder: Why can’t we talk about fertility earlier?
We founded Rita Health to give women answers. So we can make informed decisions about having kids, and our own lives. So we can encourage healthier conversations about fertility and pregnancy. So we can spark curiosity for the next generation of parents.
What are we doing?
At Rita Health, we're building the world’s first digital fertility health assessment, for you, your friends, co-workers, neighbors, and anyone who wants to get a better understanding of their reproductive health.
Great question. Rita has two meanings. It stands for the “Right Information To Acknowledge”, which is what we want to give women on their fertility journey. The name Rita means “child of light” in Persian, which chimes with what we want to do — shine a light on reproductive health.
We are an experienced team of doctors, scientists, product creators, engineers, and AI experts with one common goal: to give women unbiased, accurate information about their fertility.
