Our mission...

is to take a human centered approach to everything we design, using data and technology to improve and make positive social change.


We were challenged to use technology to solve a real-world problem and instantly saw a way to help women through the intensely stressful journey that is motherhood. We therefore began researching the current support channels available to pregnant women and mothers, and found a real need for a digital service that could offer more personalised support around the clock. However we understood that the support offered needed to be from real people - other mothers who had already experienced the things this new wave of mothers was now going through.

And so pillar was born!

Alongside providing a more relevant support system we are also looking into how mums can access their parenting health data, and use it in a way that empowers, informs and help other mums in similar situations to you. Data is often viewed as something unknown, scary and out of our hands. We at pillar want to provide you with more bite-size, easily digestible, personalised insights from your own use of the service and provide you with tailored progress.
