Easily time Labor Contractions with this elegant and extremely user friendly app.

A simple one-button interface to start and stop your Contraction timer. It clearly lists the duration of each of your contractions, as well as the interval between each contraction.

Also extremely useful for any Doula in assisting expecting mothers at full term during labor and childbirth. The delivery of a newborn baby is extremely intense, and Contraction Timer will help any Doula to time a pregnant womans contractions and deliver their baby.

You just have to tap a single button to start the timer, then tap any part of the screen to stop the timer. Contraction Timer app will take care of the rest! The app is designed to keep track of the times, durations and frequency of the entire labor period.

Easily record the intensity of a contraction with our simple slider during the contraction or when adding/editing a contraction. Great visual cues for the intensity of each contraction that allows you to easily see the intensity of your contractions over time.

Notes can also be added to each contraction and are displayed alongside your contraction timings for quick recollection of the important aspects of each contraction.

Reports and graphs for displaying averages and trends over time will be coming soon. These graphs will show if your contractions are increasing or decreasing over time, as well as allows you to decide when you should go to the hospital or birthing center.

Contraction Timer remembers all data and whether you were in the middle of a contraction or not between launches, so you can jump back and forth between this and any another app to distract you during and between contractions.

Easy to use

It’s a bit odd reviewing an app while in labour but will give it a try. Easy to use, nice interface. A background banner (like google maps or phone calls) that keeps it on screen would make going back into the app quicker and easier - maybe consider for updates.

Excellent, just turn off notifications

I loved this app. It helped me time my contractions so easily. Just turn off notifications for it as it keeps pestering you with them which is not ideal while in labour. I think someone else suggested if the app could have some sort of banner (like when Google Maps is running in background) to tap into app, makes accessing it quicker and easier.

Stop hassling me to review in the middle of labour

This worked okay and has a fairly decent interface, but it simply wouldn’t stop nagging me to review it when we were right in the middle of labour and concentrating on tracking painful contractions. It was absolutely the last thing we needed and got in the way of the one job we needed it for.

Would also be good if there was a better graphical representation/summary of previous contractions over time.
