In our modern world, we can now reach out for assistance on a variety of electronic devices. Our computers, tablets and mobile phones help bring the world to us. Just about every topic has a program or app and pregnancy is no different in this manner. There are actually so many out there today, that it can be hard to make a choice.
Best Pregnancy Apps for 2015
Here are our choices here at Expecting Parents and Baby for best pregnancy apps of 2015.
WebMD – One that seems to top the list for many expecting parents is the WebMD app on iOS. This app, created and supported by the popular medical reference and diagnostic website, WebMD, includes just about every feature a pregnant woman could want including:
- Week-by-Week Development
- Suggested Questions for Prenatal Visits
- Kick Counter
- Weight Tracker
- Contraction Timer
The WebMD app is also very smoothly designed and the distinct lack of clutter makes it incredibly user-friendly. The app provides fetal development updates in tune with your due date. It isn’t totally Mommy-centric either. Included is a small section of articles called “Just for Dads” that discusses everything from how to support your partner to Dad’s role in labor and delivery.
I’m Expecting (iOS, Android) – This might be the cutest baby app ever! You’ll be greeted by precious newborn photos regularly as well as detailed weekly videos on your baby’s development as well as your pregnancy. Users can:
- Track Pregnancy Weight
- Baby Information
- Belly Measurements
- Pregnancy Symptoms
A great feature is the symptom-tracker calendar. Just a quick tap and date entry, along with the symptoms you’re currently experiencing and you’ll know the severity of it in moments. It is a free app and includes forums based on the month of pregnancy based on the due month or your age.
- Fetal Development Information
- Daily Pregnancy Tips
- Symptoms Journal
- Weight Tracker
- Community Forums
It also allows you to log personal memories about your pregnancy. Users can enjoy the free version with the above features or pay for the Pro version at $3.99 to get a few more features such as a kick counter, contraction timer, birth planner and baby name tool.
You’ll find plenty more apps on your favorite app store that relate to your pregnancy. Some are cute and fun, like an app that allows you to ‘dress up’ your sonogram photos, while others are of the utility variety.
