The Mum & Baby app provides you with all the information you need to make plans and decisions about your NHS maternity care.

From the start of pregnancy to early parenthood, this app has been developed with the NHS to navigate your choices for maternity care in England.

You can:

• set your due date

• explore maternity units near you

• self-refer for care at your chosen maternity unit

• access information for all stages of your maternity journey

• make personalised plans for your care during pregnancy, birth and beyond

• keep track of your appointments and make notes

• access local contacts and information in specific NHS areas

• use the content without specifying an NHS area.

Mum & Baby has been developed in partnership between women, their partners, families and maternity staff from NHS trusts in North West London.

ORCHA, the Organisation for the Review of Care & Health Applications, has awarded its prestigious kitemark to the Mum & Baby app. When reviewed against 180 different criteria the app achieved 86%, the highest rating of any pregnancy and birth app tested by ORCHA.

Reviews and updates

The contents of the Mum & Baby app will be reviewed quarterly and updated accordingly by the North West London Local Maternity System - an approved panel of clinicians and service users to ensure that information given remains accurate, up-to-date and relevant for user.


The first version of Mum & Baby was launched in 2014 and was built through the initiative of Dr Sunita Sharma, Lead Consultant of Postnatal Services at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, supported CW+, the charity of Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (CWPLUS Registered Charity No.1169897). The app was subsequently expanded and updated, led by midwife project managers in the North West London ‘early adopters’ team in 2018 and 2019. This project would not have been successful without the ongoing support of CW+ and Imagineear and the North West London Local Maternity System.

Glitchy still

Was recommended this by my community midwife as just launched in area. App is still glitchy with problems. Can’t enter any of my many appointment dates in as won’t allow to save with empty fields, even when all the fields are completed. I think once bugs are fixed it will be a useful app.

Just doesn’t work

Every appointment I go to, my midwife wants to check I am using this app.
But it just doesn’t work. It’s crashed every single time I’ve opened it. First I see the ‘enter your due date’ screen, I tap to enter the due date and it crashes.
Every time.
I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled, tried installing on a different phone, nothing works.
I have an iPhone SE 2020, my husband has the newest Samsung phone, between the two of us we have two of the most common phones. There’s no excuse for this app not to work at all on either of them.

If the NHS are putting as much weight on this app as it seems like they are from my appointments, it’s obviously very important that it actually work.
Our local midwife unit was shut down during covid, there are barely any midwives or nurses available at the local hospital. I’m pregnant and scared, there’s no one to talk to and all I have is this useless, broken app.

Useful app

I downloaded the app without any trouble and looked for hospitals around me, I didn’t even know there is so many! Very useful as there is so much information and advice of different areas of pregnancy and after care.
