Co-Founder & Chief Medical Officer at Fetolife
I’m so proud of our team at Waxdale. I’m proud because we’re bold and unwilling to settle. We live in a world where women have been the best performing individuals ever! It is not even close! I wanted to pursue the Waxd’Elle idea because it made sense and I wanted the team to have a leader who cares about creating a system where EVERY entrepreneur can succeed and have an equal opportunity to be heard. Women are the best entrepreneurs out there and they will continue to be.
Today, I’d like to present to you Dr. Allessandra Aisha Tramontana. She is the first founder to be profiled on Waxd’Elle! I couldn’t believe my eyes when I read her answers to our questions. What an amazing entrepreneur.
Alright Allessandra, the floor is yours!
Please provide us with your name(s)?
Dr. Allessandra Aisha Tramontana, MSc
Where are you from?
Tell us about you (background info)?
I'm Aisha, co-founder and Chief Medical Officer of FetoLife. I’m an obstetrics and gynecology (OBGYN) doctor and specialist for maternal-fetal medicine certified by the Fetal Medicine Foundation (FMF). In addition, I hold a Master of Science in medical genetics. I obtained my medical degree at the Medical University of Vienna, one of the top-level research institutions in Europe, and published several scientific papers regarding prenatal care of high-risk pregnancies with adverse pregnancy complications.
I believe every pregnant woman should experience pregnancy feeling the most self-confident way possible. Therefore, I am fully dedicated to empowering every mother to improve their own and their baby‘s health for the very best outcome.
Why are you starting this business?
FetoLife was founded to improve the lives of millions of pregnant women. In 2018 it started with a big vision – a modern one-stop-shop prenatal health solution for every pregnant woman easy to get and handy to use. This idea came from my career as an OBGYN, as I strongly felt the need of a new way of medical practice in women’s health. In so many years of working with my patients, I found it alarming how insecure and dependent women try to find their own way within the health system. Especially for pregnancy care, I experienced my patients to be lost in anonymity, asking for a more disposable, customized and personal medicine. At this time, I was finishing my master’s degree in genetics, when I first learned about personalized medicine, precise diagnostics and targeted therapy strategies based on a human’s unique DNA, and I was intrigued. So, I was hooked to transform prenatal health into a new way of personalized medicine to help women taking control of their pregnancy and getting the medical support they need.
