Periodic Reporting for period 1 - TheCoroRevolution (The Coro: a revolutionary product to bring breastfeeding into the 21st century)

Reporting period: 2019-12-01 to 2020-11-30

The World Health Organisation recommends exclusive breastfeeding to 6 months. The majority of mothers who intend to breastfeed do not achieve their goals. In Europe only 13% of mothers reach the WHO target.
Concern regarding breast milk supply is the single most commonly identified factor for discontinuing breastfeeding. Currently there is no commercially available product in the world that can accurately measure breast milk flow. Our product, Coro is a revolutionary micro-sensor embedded in a widely used nipple shield providing accurate, real-time milk volume directly to app.

Breastfeeding has widely proven health benefits for both babies and mothers ranging from protecting against childhood infections to obesity, heart disease and cancer in later life. The Coro will incentivise mothers to breastfeed for longer to the benefit of their baby’s life-long health and their own.
We have identified and commenced engagement with research-partners, manufacturing companies and Key Opinion Leaders. We have overcome significant technical and manufacturing challenges to commence sample production, while launching our first clinical trial.
By addressing the volume concern both for mothers for whom weight gain is of concern and within the clinical setting where accurate volume measurement can be a crucial piece of information, Coro has the potential to have huge societal, health and economic benefits associated with improved breastfeeding rates.
