LOS ANGELES, Dec. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Kindbody, a new women's healthcare company, enters the Los Angeles market this week with its mobile fertility pop-up. Kindbody, led by former Founder/CEO of Progyny, Gina Bartasi, is building a national network of boutique women's healthcare facilities through pop-up and brick-and-mortar locations, with technology and patient experience at its core.
Kindbody will offer complimentary fertility hormone tests and consultations in two Los Angeles locations on two consecutive days this week. On December 12th, the fertility pop-up will be at 573 West 8th Street, between South Grand Avenue and Olive Street, from 9 am to 6 pm. On December 13th, the fertility pop-up will be at 700 South Spaulding Street, at Wilshire Boulevard, from 9 am and 6 pm.
Kindbody promoted the mobile fertility pop-up to a LA audience on Instagram in the weeks leading up to the event days and received 2,000 pre-sign-ups. They confirmed appointment slots for 400 attendees, and will try to accommodate as many walk-ins as possible.
Kindbody has already held mobile fertility pop-ups in Manhattan, the Hamptons, Palo Alto, and San Francisco. At the pop-ups, they do a blood test for AMH levels, which is a hormone associated with ovarian reserve. Kindbody has performed almost 1,000 AMH tests to date, and found that 20% of all patients tested had a score under 1, indicating a low ovarian reserve. Around 50% of patients with a score under 1 were under the age of 35. Kindbody provides on-site consultations with physicians to contextualize the information and answer any questions.
"To truly improve outcomes and experience, we know the discussion about women's health must start earlier and with their gynecologist," said Founding Physician, Dr. Fahimeh Sasan, who joined Kindbody after a decade at Mount Sinai. "Kindbody's mission is to democratize care, start the conversation earlier, and make it easier for patients to get the care they need."
Kindbody recently announced the hire of Dr. Lynn Westphal from Stanford University School of Medicine as their Chief Medical Officer, Reproductive Endocrinology. "This is an opportunity to raise the overall quality of care," said Dr. Westphal. "People stay away from the medical system when they feel like it isn't designed for them. Women want to be listened to, and they want to be treated as a whole person. Kindbody's approach is the way medicine should be moving."
