What are the best pregnancy apps?

DID YOU KNOW?

We will always be thankful to mobile technology for its unprecedented help in every aspect of our lives. Well, it comes as no surprise that mothers are also thankful for the rise of pregnancy apps. Yet, did you know a study shows these pregnancy apps have a significant impact on maternity care and experiences of a mother? And not in a very good way that people expect. Since smartphones are arguably and slowly taking over the world in every form, the healthcare sector is no exception. According to a study conducted on the new emerging model of maternity care, expectant mothers heavily rely on these apps tracking the different changes. Some even dubbed these as pregnancy apps for dads, as they also empower men to share in the experience of women. It is true that these apps let them track the physical and emotional changes that occur during pregnancy. It also lets them track the baby's body changes. Yet, the problem arises when mothers would rather rely on the findings than consulting their Ob-Gyne. Well, not that experts and doctors do not recommend these apps. It just that ever since the apps have grown in popularity, fewer mothers are going to healthcare centers for their checkups.

Yet, perhaps, one of the main reasons why expectant mothers heavily rely on these apps is the convenience and the companionship they have found through them This is especially true for first-time moms. Some apps work more than just a pregnancy-tracking tool. They are actual communities composed of moms, dads, and experts who share the same sentiments and experiences. No matter how moms handle their pregnancy, every mom hopes for one thing--that their baby is going to be healthy.

    "Mom/ Mom To Be App It is unlike any other mom based app and online community. This app brings moms of all walks of life from all over to talk about all things motherhood related in a safe and fun environment! The app is easy to use, and there are tons of great features that cater to what moms and moms-to-be want to know! I would highly recommend this app to all of my mom and pregnant friends/family members. Thank you Mom.Life for providing us with a great resource for all things mom related. PS: in light of recent negative reviews, I have to say I am so proud of the app moderators for being so quick to respond to issues. They understand there are people from different backgrounds going through different situations and choosing to raise children as each mom sees fit and won't allow for negativity or misconduct from fellow users. It really is an awesome and safe app."
