D.C.-based startup Babyscripts is looking to add to its product offerings following a $5.7 million Series A.

The Georgetown-based startup initially launched a platform focusing on care for women during pregnancy. The company’s apps help guide patients through pregnancy. It also provides remote monitoring though an option to receive a “Mommy Kit,” which includes an internet-connected blood pressure cuff. The company is working with 15 health systems.

Cofounder Juan Pablo Segura said the company began by focusing on low-risk pregnancies, and is now looking to create products that can help people at-risk of challenges and complications. One feature supports patients insured by Medicaid, and includes a chat bot that provides information to patients. Other functions are seeking to address the post-partum experience and a patients’ overall risk of complication, Segura said.

“We’re now thinking about Babyscripts not just in one population, but being able to touch every kind of patient situation,” Segura said.

The company has been hiring in the last few months, and is looking to grow its team of 15 to about 20 employees. Hiring is focusing on product development, as well as sales and marketing, Segura said.

Ysios Capital led the funding round. Additional investors include Chemo Group, CG Health Ventures, Aurora Health Care Ventures, and P5 Health Ventures.
