Gina Bartasi Headshot

Acting on the vision of building a solution that’s about making women’s lives easier… Women need to be treated as first-class citizens in health care and the primary decision makers. Thanks to the power of social media platforms like Instagram, women are really pushing each other forward and empowering one another to learn more and take action for their own health. Knowledge truly is power, Kindbody will be passionately leaning into their strong growth in a big way, and Kindbody has personal meaning to one of the Socialfly team . Gina Bartasi, Founder/CEO of Kindbody (a full service women’s health and fertility platform, reinvented for the women of today), joins Socialfly founders Stephanie Cartin and Courtney Spritzer in the MouthMedia Network studios for a conversation about building her company and her journey to success, along with a surprise and a brainstorm.

In this episode:

  • From former patient to disruptor in the space, having passion for change
  • From building Fertility Authority 10 years ago, to recently launching Kindbody, what has changed in the healthcare space? The answer, not much…

  • Creating options for women, “I wish I knew then what I know today.”
  • The reality of costs for egg freezing, how can we make it affordable and available for everyone
