The one digital platform tackling women’s health issues and putting preventative medicine first

Just imagine a world where you can understand and explore your health needs at the touch of a button. A world where information and education about health matters are easily accessible. You can find articles about health conditions and then connect with doctors to talk about your concerns. Imagine if you could easily find the solutions suggested by your doctor if they were also available at the touch of a button and included yoga, exercise, diet and prescriptions amongst others. Wouldn’t it be helpful if you could then have prescriptions and products delivered directly to your door? Wouldn’t it be amazing if the lifestyle options were available to access ‘on demand’, when you need them and were curated by experts-specifically to focus on your conditions? How would it feel to be able to enter a community of like-minded individuals and share your stories? What if there was also the ability to ask experts your questions, even if it was the middle of the night? It would be incredible!

Now, what if all that was available in Australia, with Australian registered doctors and specifically focussed on women’s health? What if there was an Australian based expert panel drawn from some of the leading lights in the industry, collating medical and dietetic knowledge, physio and exercise physiology expertise and the experience of a clinical psychologist? What if every GP you consulted with had extra training in women’s health? What if you could use the service in the comfort of your own home?

Well, now you can! Femma is a new Australian based health platform, developed from knowledge gleaned from years of clinical experience. Dr Emma Rees, a GP with additional qualifications in women’s health has worked with a motivated and passionate team, backed by healthcare investors, to create and deliver a unique women’s healthcare experience. Femma believes that every woman deserves good health and its mission is to connect women with high-quality female focussed healthcare wherever they are based.  With an initial focus on menopause and polycystic ovarian syndrome, Femma quickly expanded the range of conditions it manages to now have 7 areas of focus including contraception, skin and female hair-loss, with more areas coming soon. The unique element of this platform is that it not only offers advice and prescriptions, but the doctors are also able to refer patients to their in-house on-demand content. Original content has been created for the Femma platform to deliver lifestyle solutions for the conditions they treat. With Femma, you don’t need to go anywhere else, the management plans they create can all be facilitated in your own home allowing for a truly discrete approach to healthcare. They will also facilitate onward referrals when needed.

The community element of the platform is also a new initiative. The team at Femma have recognised the isolation faced by some women navigating solo through healthcare journeys and has endeavoured to provide many different forms of support. They are keen for all women to have a gentle journey, benefiting from as much or as little expert and peer knowledge as they would like but with the knowledge that it’s all there if they need it. You don’t even have to have a consultation to join the community and enjoy the range of exercise and meal plans, use yoga or practice mindfulness techniques. This visionary approach to healthcare is already waiting at
