About Us

The Swaddle covers the latest in health, gender, and culture in India — and why it matters.

What started as a maternal health resource — specifically intended to address the dearth of reliable, vetted, and researched guidance for new mothers — quickly expanded to cover global breaking health and science news, with a specific focus on how it relates to women’s health in India. Our¬†Resources section has become the comprehensive go-to guide on basic health and mental health for hundreds of thousands of Indian women every month.

The Swaddle’s gender and culture reporting unpacks so much that is in flux in Indian society: gender roles and stereotypes in media, workplace, and the home, evolving notions of masculinity and sexuality. Whether through reporting, op-eds, video, podcasts, campaigns, or live events, we cover the issues we care about, from the angles no one’s talking about. Today, The Swaddle is essential reading for Indian feminists who appreciate the candor and originality of our perspective.
