For Srividya and Prathap, hearing the news of imminent parenthood was an occasion of giddy joyfulness as well as stark terror. Alone in Bangalore during covid, it seemed to them like they were on their own.
Srividya’s mother, a renowned pediatrician was a constant support, and Srividya, an SLP herself, was experienced in dealing with infants, which only added to her skills every day. Yet there were aspects of the parenting journey that came as a surprise, that begot anxiety, and sometimes presented tough choices.
This led to a great deal of research and extensive conversations with experts through which they were able to curate some of the best parenting practices applied worldwide.
As they began to connect with other young parents, they realized they were not alone. This is a common feeling shared by all first timers on their parenting journey. Thus, the idea of Oxyto was born.
Through this platform, they wish to empower mothers to make the best decisions through expert consultation for their child(ren), to eliminate stress from this journey as much as possible, and to present virtual support right from the news of pregnancy to all the stages of child development.
Oxyto is a companion, a friend who can work as a referral to best practices and the best people when it comes to parenting.
