Bringing new life into the world is magical – and mysterious. Suddenly, your body is hosting a temporary visitor and it’s simultaneously amazing and bewildering.
Make like 15 million other mums, then, and trust Pregnancy & Baby Tracker to help you understand both what’s happening to your body and how your baby is developing. The app also introduces you to a community of other parents-to-be, so that you never need to feel alone.
Create an account, enter your baby’s due date and you can instantly start tracking its development in the womb. The language is accessible, not medical: one morning, you might be told that your baby is now the size of a lime (!). You can watch video simulations of how the foetus will be moving around in the womb, and learn about milestones like when your child has grown fingernails. A countdown tracks your progress to your due date.
There are also acres of articles on every area of pregnancy, birth and early stage parenthood, including tips on diet and health. Read testimonials and advice from other parents, and you can also use the message board to connect with other parents who are having babies in the same month that you are – so your newborns can make their very first friend.
