Key Features To Look For When Choosing A Pregnancy App

Week-by-Week Calendar

All pregnancy apps should have this main feature.

The week-by-week calendar should could mommy-to-be updates on baby’s weekly growth and the body changes that mom can expect.

The best apps provide size comparisons and even slideshows or videos of baby’s weekly growth in the womb.

Pregnancy Information

Pregnancy apps are used by pregnant moms for their insightful information.

These apps need to provide information on the pregnancy from the first week to the last week.

It should also give moms healthy food tips and advice on exercising, preparing the nursery, what to expect when going into labour and so much more.

Essentials Checklist

When choosing a pregnancy app, you should ensure that it has a list of all the essentials that you’ll need.

While you may know what you and your new baby will need, it would be best to choose an app that has this feature as pregnancy is notorious for making moms forgetful.

A list of everything from nappies and wipes for baby to maternity pads and comfy slippers for mom, a good pregnancy app will ensure that you buy everything you will need.

Kick Counter

You may not think you need this feature, however by the third trimester your doctor or midwife will ask you to keep track of your baby’s daily movements.

Gone are the days of ticking off the kicks on a piece of paper while watching the time on your phone, you can simply use this tool to help you monitor your baby’s kicks. 

Contraction Timer

When comes to labour, monitoring the length of the contractions and the time between them is important to know how far along the labour is.

Knowing how your labour is progressing is important, and your doctor or midwife will likely tell you to go to the hospital when your contractions are a certain length apart.

Although this feature is important for moms to have, it would be best to hand this over to the dad-to-be (or birthing partner) when the time comes. You will be too busy breathing through those painful contractions to bother with monitoring them.
