'Lucy' is an app built specifically for women in the third and fourth trimesters of their pregnancy -- in other words, women in the latest stage of pregnancy and earliest post-partum stage. The app is designed to help parents navigate the often baffling endeavor that is parenthood by helping them to make custom plans and find health professionals approved through Lucy's vetting procedures.

The Lucy app's experts include an array of medical professionals who specialize in pregnancy, including doctors, lactation consultants, doulas, midwives, therapists, and coaches. Lucy's experts come from highly regarded medical institutions like UCSF, Harvard, and Stanford. The services they offer include lactation support, family counseling, nutrition counseling, and even sleep coaching.

Beyond health professionals, services within the app extend to things like career strategy coaching, household errands, and spa and massage services.
