Louise's story

When we met her at the hospital, Louise was still in her seventh month of pregnancy and had already been in that room for one month. 


She didn’t have a choice but to leave her 18 month baby at home. 

She had been detected to be at risk of premature birth.

Luckily, Louise delivered a healthy boy (without any medical intervention) in her 40th week of pregnancy. But..

During the 3 months she spent at the hospital, her mom changed countries to help her. Her husband dropped his job to take care of their baby at home. 

Her first child needed her the most.

Louise could have been monitored from home.

Hi! We are Erick and Loulia, EPFL & CHUV researchers, and we are developing an alternative for other pregnant women like Louise.

If like us, you see the importance of stop ignoring this situation, we want to hear from you.

We would like to hear your story. We want your point of view.

We want to reduce unnecessary hospitalizations

A scientific publication found out that

Only 15% of hospitalized pregnant women will deliver in the first 7 days of hospitalization 

Doctors want their patients to be safe. 

They lack the tools to monitor them outside of the hospital...

But what if they had them?


Several obstetricians around the world believe Rea could help their patients

However to comply with the latest European safety regulations, Rea could be available for clinics in 2022.

Our smart pad will go through preclinical studies in the near future in the University Hospital of Lausanne, Switzerland.

In the meantime:


We would like to hear about your pregnancy experience. About your point of view. About a friend that went through this. About how you feel about this technology.

Your testimonies help us to improve a future smart pad experience.
