Simmone Taitt is the CEO and founder of Poppy Seed Health, a telehealth app transforming the way we care for pregnant and postpartum people with 24/7 text access to doulas, midwives and nurses. On a mission to democratize accessibility, emotional support and well-being for all birthing people, Taitt comes to this work through the highly personal experience of navigating her own pregnancy loss in an inequitable medical system. Prior to Poppy Seed Health, Taitt spent 13 years working on go-to market strategies with early-stage startups Gilt Groupe, SpaFinder and KidPass. She is a deep believer that technology can and should leverage its power to connect us all with radical empathy. Her work has been covered by Fast Company, Insider, The Skimm and many more.
