In this episode we talk with Julia Rose, founder of VaGenie, her women’s health tech startup. After the birth of her first child in France, Julia realized the importance of good vagina and pelvic floor health and how it affects our lives. After moving back to the United States and having her second child, she realized that women in the U.S. are exposed much less to the idea of needing to keep their pelvic floor’s healthy and all the areas of their lives it could affect.
This realization led Julia to start developing the VaGenie, a tool women can use to exercise their pelvic floor and build up their strength. Today, Julia is working on the manufacturing of the product, building the software, which is a video game type tool to go with the physical product, and developing a community that supports positive discussions of vaginal health and support for all women. Julia shares her process for how she has developed and funded the VaGenie and what she has in store for her business moving forward.
