Pregnancy can be a time of worry but there’s plenty of aid available nowadays. in this article, we’ll share with you the best 10 pregnancy Apps to help you through your pregnancy…
When you’re expecting a baby, it’s an incredibly exciting time but it can also be stressful, particularly if it’s your first pregnancy. It can be particularly daunting when it comes to thinking about childbirth.
If you or your baby have experience an injury or suspect something has been missed during the pregnancy that lead to injury, you may need the advice and support of birth injury solicitors. Securing the correct support can ensure you receive the funds needed for care.
It’s a good idea to track your own pregnancy for the sake of showing records should you ever need to. Thankfully, in 2022, there are a number of really helpful Apps which can help you navigate your pregnancy and answer any questions that you might have.
Here are 10 pregnancy Apps that you need to know about…
1. Pregnancy +
Free for iOS and Android, the Pregnancy + app offers information, personalised pregnancy tracking, guides to exercising and, also, daily articles which are tailored to the user’s personal requirements.
As well as handy checklists, this App features a unique 3D model rendering of your baby’s progress, including an option to zoom in for finer detail. Unfortunately, this App does not include any information or support for those who are trying to conceive.
2. Nurture Pregnancy Week By Week
Created specifically for pregnant women who have previously suffering a miscarriage, this App offers support and information, including tracking options for unusual symptoms to give peace of mind during your pregnancy.
The App, which can be integrated with MyFitness Pal and Apple’s health App includes a baby kick counter and the option to track contractions.
3. Pregnancy and Baby Tracker WTE
One of the more aesthetically pleasing Apps, the Pregnancy and Baby Tracker has some great features including the option to produce fun movies of your baby’s development and a fantastic social support feature to help support you during your pregnancy.
While this free App is a little heavy on the advertising, it has some brilliant features to help you through your pregnancy.
4. Ovia Pregnancy Tracker
Available for iOS and Android and free to use, the Ovia Pregnancy Tracker includes a number of interactive and personalised charts such as fetal movement and development which can be converted into graphs and, also, health assessments.
While a good option for tracking development, the interface of the app can be a little cluttered and confusing.
5. BabyCenter Pregnancy Tracker
One of the best all round pregnancy trackers, the BabyCentre App allows you to create a personalised pregnancy timeline as well as offering insights into what you can expect at each stage of your pregnancy.
The App also has some great social options to put you in touch with other expectant parents. Rated 4.9 stars out of 5 in the iOS app store, this app has some of the most comprehensive features available and is free of charge.
This App is used by over two million women worldwide and is one of the few to include digital health and wellbeing advice and information from preconception all the way through to motherhood.
Free to download, the App offers a number of features, including daily tips. For even more insights, upgrades are available.
7. Amma Pregnancy and Baby Tracker
This free app has all of the features that you would expect from a pregnancy App, including development trackers and wellbeing features. It also allows users to gain advice directly from obstetricians through weekly newsletters. Unfortunately, the app does not offer any support or advice on preconception.
Designed with the expectant mother’s partner in mind, the preglife App can be downloaded free of charge and allows users to share important information with their partners, including symptoms and even help with test driving the route to the hospital.
9. Sprout Pregnancy
At £7.99, Sprout is certainly not the most cost-effective option for expectant mothers, but it may be worth it if you’re after superior 3D renderings of your baby, including the ability to toggle and view from every possible angle.
The App also includes some useful informational resources and checklists to help you to get organised ahead of baby’s birth.
10. WebMD Pregnancy
A more medical based offering, WebMD Pregnancy is a little more sophisticated in that it offers more than the standard developmental information. The App includes 3D renderings which include the mother’s organs as well as the baby’s and, also, this free App supplies medical based articles which can be downloaded and printed to allow you to share and discuss these with your doctor.
This App can be particularly useful for those who do not have a huge amount of access to a doctor or a midwife curing their pregnancy.
Keeping your own records can be useful to medical and legal professionals…
For the first time parent, pregnancy can be a minefield of concerns and unanswered questions. Many people simply don’t have the benefit of having their doctor available to them whenever needed.
The main concern for parents, of course, is that their child may suffer a birth injury. While there are no Apps available which specifically tackle birth injuries, keeping records through one of the Apps mentioned in this article is a good habit to get into.
In the distressing event that your baby does suffer a birth injury, the ability to show developmental progress as recorded by a pregnancy App can help your case should you decide to take legal action against the hospital or your doctor.
