Dr. Esha Chainani is an Obstetrician, Gynaecologist, Infertility specialist and Laparoscopic Surgeon practicing in Mumbai, India.
She aims to break the stigma around women’s health by advocating an inclusive and open practice of obstetrics and gynaecology.
Esha is the author of several internationally published research papers and health articles in the media like the Swaddle.
She is also an Editor for the MAR Journal of Gynaecology.
She has been on the panel for multiple health sessions including with the UN, USAID, BMC, gender at work and multiple non profit organisations.
She’s also on the advisory panel of the South Indian Medical Students Association.
She advocates for accessible healthcare through her instagram account (@premaahealth) as well posting about reproductive health, mental health and sexual health.
She founded Premaa, a non profit to reduce maternal morbidity and eventual maternal mortality by providing lower income pregnant women living in urban areas cell phone access through an app, to medically correct information proven to influence the outcomes of both mother and child. Her app Premaa pregnancy also has an entire section about contraception as well for a whole gamut of reproductive health. She advocates for accessible healthcare through her instagram account as well posting about reproductive health, mental health and sexual health.
Dr. Esha Chainani studied MBBS in Mumbai and then her MS in Obstetrics and Gynecology after realising it combined her passions for surgery, medicine and helping women through one of the most challenging and happiest phases of their lives.
During her time as an OBGY resident, Dr. Esha saw a stark gap of information between patients and doctors. There were far too many patients for doctors to counsel about the problems they may be facing in their pregnancies – here PREMAA was born. This app would bridge the gap between women and their doctors in the kind of information they should know about their bodies, their pregnancy and the baby growing in their womb.
