Meet Velma, the Velmio pregnancy chatbot. It’s normal to have many questions during pregnancy, so we designed Velma to be your on-demand virtual pregnancy assistant.
She uses the latest developments in natural language processing - the subfield of artificial intelligence that deals in language interactions between computers and humans - to understand your pregnancy questions and retrieve the most relevant information curated by our medical experts.
