WeWork Features Mama Strut

Excerpt – Thanks to WeWork team member Endi Simon, I recently learned the incredible story of Hollywood member Jill Bigelow: her invention, Mama Strut, helps new moms get back on their feet, offering the varying levels of support that they need. More than a product, Mama Strut—by Pelv-Ice, the name of Bigelow’s medical device company—helps the busy mother of three build lasting connections with thousands of other moms around the world. I spoke with the founder about improving women’s health care, a spontaneous and fateful conversation with Sir Richard Branson, and more. 

Tell us a little bit about you as an inventor, entrepreneur, and businesswoman.  

I wear a few hats! My background is actually in finance, focused more on hospitality and real estate, so I never thought that I’d come to be the creator of a medical device and then be the founder of a medical device company.

But if you look back at my background, my experiences do tie together nicely for this role. I was an athlete in high school and college playing volleyball, and I had a lot of soft tissue and skeletal damage from training and performing at a high level. I’d received physical therapy, MRIs, ortho doctor visits, etc., but when I had the largest injury of my life—childbirth—they gave me nothing. Just a few pairs of disposable underwear and ice inside of a medical glove. This was my “there has got to be a better way” moment, which as you know, is how many great inventions start.
