Here at Childcare is fun, we are always on the lookout for fantabulous products that make pregnancy and parenting just that little bit easier!
We were delighted to be offered the chance to try out a rather cool application for the iphone called ‘The Pregnancy companion’
Pregnancy Companion™ was developed and written in the USA, by two board certified OB/GYNs.
It is the most comprehensive pregnancy app made for busy moms-to-be who want a doctor’s advice and pregnancy tracking tools at their fingertips.
It provides personalized, user-friendly and unique tracking tools, as well as reliable and pertinent medical information and answers to questions that pregnant women most often have.
On first downloading the ap, our fingers got carried away with all of the exciting buttons and gadgets available!
Pregnancy is an exciting time, but also a worrying time, and the ap covers everything from a daily fluid intake counter to answers to any worries and concerns a pregnant mummy-to -be may have.
As an English mum-to-be, it’s a little hard getting used to the americanisms in the ap, but not too tricky to convert (certainly not rocket science!)
The Ap is a ‘peace of mind’ tool for any mum-to-be wanting that little bit of reassurance in her pocket! With the pregnancy application to hand, you’re only two clicks away from getting the answers you need.
Our fave parts:
We especially like the week by week updates that give you measurements of your growing baby and little scan pictures so you can see what they look like! we also love the kick counter, and when the big day comes, the contraction timer is the perfect helping hand for dad! (We all know men love their gadgets so what better way of helping in labour, than with an iphone!)
