Life Whisperer, the fertility arm of AI healthcare company Presagen, which operates out of San Francisco, Adelaide (South Australia), and London announced today a partnership with GoHealthe to distribute their Life Whisperer embryo selection application in India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.
Life Whisperer’s flagship product uses AI to analyse microscope images of embryos to assist clinicians to identify which embryo will likely lead to a pregnancy. By selecting the best embryo, Life Whisperer aims to shorten the time to pregnancy and improve outcomes for couples undergoing IVF treatment. In a published international clinical study involving blind testing of 1,600 embryos Life Whisperer was shown to perform 25% better than highly experienced embryologists at identifying embryos with the highest chance of leading to a pregnancy.
With clinics in Australia already using the application successfully, the company is looking forward to working with GoHealthe to engage with IVF clinics across the region to offer Life Whisperer to patients at a very low cost, meaning more people can gain more certainty in embryo selection, and suffer through fewer IVF cycles.
Life Whisperer is already being used by IVF Clinic Jananam Fertility in Chennai, India. Dr. Vani, Medical Director of Jananam said, “Life Whisperer is very reliable, needs no equipment and is non-invasive. It is a big step forward in fertility treatment and we have had amazing success and higher patient satisfaction using Life Whisperer”. Numerous other clinics in India are currently trialling the software with the intention of also implementing Life Whisperer in their clinics.

Life Whisperer’s Chief Commercial Officer Richie Bower said: “Life Whisperer is expected to become the gold standard embryo pre-screening tool in IVF that will support the clinical decision about which embryo is most viable. By opening an IVF market of over 180,000 cycles annually, our partnership with GoHealthe in the Indian Subcontinent represents a significant opportunity for Life Whisperer to expand its global presence, and we are very much looking forward to working with them.”
GoHealthe, a company that offers turnkey solutions in assisted reproduction is excited to partner with Life Whisperer. Director Sharad Selvam said, “Life Whisperer provides advanced A.I. technology that helps eliminate IVF trauma at reasonable costs and this technology will be an invaluable tool to fertility centres helping them improve IVF success rates.”
