Claire Holt Wore This Fertility Bracelet During Her Pregnancy

We are thrilled to have first-time mom Claire Holt on the spring cover of Mini Magazine, sharing on pregnancy after loss, how she prepared for baby, and even how she’s committed to breaking the stigma surrounding women’s health and fertility. In our interview, Holt shares the one secret tool she used to gain valuable insights throughout her pregnancy and she wore it every day! The Ava Bracelet.

Holt is Ava’s first official long-term brand ambassador and she opened up to Mini in the spring issue to talk about the partnership:

Can you tell us about your Ava partnership and why it was important for your to be a part of the campaign?
I’m so excited about this partnership because I truly believe in the brand and everything they stand for. After our pregnancy loss, I became really passionate about breaking the stigmas surrounding women’s health and fertility. I wanted to help to build a community of educated and empowered women— Ava is helping me to achieve that. The technology is really incredible and provides accurate and reliable cycle and overall health information to those who use it. I’ve worn the bracelet throughout my pregnancy and it has given me really valuable insights which have helped me navigate the anxiety I’ve faced.

How It Works


According to the brand, the Ava Fertility Tracker is for women who want to monitor their health for trying to conceive or getting to know their bodies. The Ava bracelet is a completely unprecedented method of tracking a woman’s cycle. While you’re sleeping, Ava’s sensors collects data on seven physiological parameters. Ava’s algorithm then detects your fertile window, physiological stress level, sleep quality, and more. Ava detects the very first signs that the fertile window is beginning, and confirms when it ends. Simply wear Ava while you sleep and wake up to your personalized insights!

What It Detects

  • Skin Temperature
  • Resting Pulse Rate
  • Breathing Rate
  • Heart Rate Variability Ratio
  • Perfusion
  • Movement
  • Sleep

The Facts

  • Ava has been shown to detect an average of 5.3 fertile days per cycle at 89% accuracy (algorithm performance may be improved with more regular cycles, and diminished with less regular cycles).
  • Ava was clinically tested in a year-long study at the University Hospital of Zurich. Our first findings were published in the peer-reviewed journal Scientific Reports.
  • Ava is an FDA registered device and CE certified.
