Bumply is a social network built by our team at Strillobyte to support women during pregnancy. It was first released as an iOS app on the Apple Store in mid-2017, and on the Google Play Store for Android in December 2017. Since its first release, its users have grown steadily to around 2000 members all over the UK.
A problem worth solving
Our story with Bumply started in 2016, when Tomas, an experienced NHS obstetrician (and now founder of Bumply Ltd), reached out to us to discuss an idea: his wife Amy was pregnant, and over the years, he had seen many mums-to-be worrying and struggling to find reliable support throughout their pregnancy. It can be one of the most exciting times of our lives, but sometimes it can also be extremely overwhelming. Having someone to talk to about this life changing experience can make all the difference, so Tomas and Amy thought it was time to build a platform where mums could find and help each other, and get reliable information about all the different stages of their journey.
To make Tomas and Amy's vision come true, we applied a 4-step process.
