Tovah Haim is the founder and CEO of Bodily, an online destination covering inadequately addressed areas of women’s health, providing educational content and modern products backed by clinical research.
Inspired by Tovah’s own experience after delivering her first child, Bodily is a direct response to what she found to be a startling lack of basic information, an assortment of lackluster products, and a wall of cultural taboo surrounding the common occurrence of birth recovery and breastfeeding. She knew she couldn’t be alone in the experience of searching for and expecting more — over 10,000 women give birth every day in the US. Her returning to work during recovery and early breastfeeding exacerbated the common complexities resulting from this cultural and market gap, and knowing that 65% of women in the US today are breadwinners or co-breadwinners (rendering this intensified experience common), Tovah decided to make it her personal mission to change this for women. While she launched Bodily to destigmatize and better serve female physiology, she intentionally designed the platform to be inclusive beyond those directly impacted by the issues covered, regardless of gender or role.
Bodily has raised $3 million of venture capital funding to date from Global Founders Capital, as well as Brooklyn Decker and Andy Roddick. The brand has been featured on Forbes.com, PopSugar, Well + Good, The Bump, and Cheddar TV, among others.
Prior to launching Bodily in November 2019, Tovah held executive roles leading finance, strategy and data at direct-to-consumer meal-service and food-product brands Blue Apron and Daily Harvest, as well as Ralph Lauren’s global e-commerce business division. She also spent eight years on Wall Street as a private equity investor at Goldman Sachs and Global Infrastructure Partners, and an investment banker at Citi Group.
Tovah graduated magna cum laude from the University of California, Berkeley, where she studied Political Economy. She resides in Brooklyn, New York.
