Ro, the healthcare technology company, has acquired of Modern Fertility, a reproductive health company focused on addressing gaps in women’s healthcare through fertility testing, research, education, and community.
Zachariah Reitano, co-founder and chief executive officer of Ro, said, “What Afton, Carly, and the Modern Fertility team have built over the last few years is nothing short of incredible. What excited us most about Modern Fertility is their relentless focus on the customer, their unique, proactive approach to fertility and women’s health, and the fact that Afton and Carly live and breathe Modern Fertility with every ounce of their being. Together they’ve created, in our opinion, a women’s health company that is defining of a generation.”
Afton Vechery, co-founder and chief executive officer of Modern Fertility, said, “We started Modern Fertility to transform women’s health from reactive to proactive. About 1 in 6 couples struggle to conceive and yet there are only about 500 infertility clinics nationwide. We now have the opportunity to dramatically accelerate our vision of supporting women in every single step of the journey in reproductive care and beyond. With Ro, we will be able to drive better outcomes and lower costs for millions of women—and redefine women’s health as we know it. I could not be more energized about the future of Modern Fertility.”
