According to Adeloye Olanrewaju, the founder of Babymigo, he was inspired to launch the Babymigo platform after engaging in extensive work with pregnant mothers during his professional training years. Adeloye also watched his sister in law during her pregnancy and this was his major push to innovate a solution for safe motherhood .His sister in law was concerned about every little thing and wanted to be assured that her baby was doing okay. He noticed that pregnancy and childbirth are critical life changing times in a woman’s life. Having someone to help and guide a new mother in taking care of herself and her baby especially in the first pregnancy is very important.
In 2016, Olanrewaju was selected as a Queen’s Young Leader which is a unique network of influential voices who are changing the world.
