The modern world is a complicated and maddening thing
You may not think that an app could help you get pregnant, but you’d be wrong.
Following the same template as Tinder (without the hook-ups), Just A Baby matches you with potential sperm donors, surrogates, or even a co-parent or partner. Users fill out a “biological profile”, detailing what they’re either looking for or willing to provide from sperm or egg donations to co-parenting, surrogacy, or partnership.
The app, which officially launched in the UK and US this week, is GPS enabled, so you can have your needs met locally. Alternatively, you can broaden your search and hone in on a different country or region. Already, the app has attracted between 3,000 to 4,000 users .
Australian co-founder Paul Ryan said that the app was aimed at millennials who might want children, but aren’t ready to settle down with a long-term partner.
“Millennials are often in this space where they’re transient, their relationships don’t last as long, and they’re putting off having kids,” he told NBC. “I noticed so much anxiety among my friends, and thought, ‘Why not rid the stigma around trying alternative approaches, and make an app?'”
