Team 1: Frøya

Studies have found that, for a number of reasons, rural women suffer from a lack of appropriate and timely obstetrical care. Similarly, there is often a lack of practitioners in these communities who are able to provide the necessary care, and it can be difficult for existing practitioners to stay on top of best practices. However, without appropriate prenatal care, maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality increases. Our app, FRØYA seeks to address both of these challenges with the goal of facilitating comprehensive prenatal care for rural women.
