Babyscripts is the first-ever virtual care platform prescribed by healthcare providers to expectant mothers at the start of their pregnancy. The mobile app delivers custom content to patients, from their OB team, on a weekly basis to guide them through their pregnancy with practice-specific, provider-approved tips related to nutrition, exercise, and other behaviors that support a happy and healthy pregnancy. Remote monitoring can be a part of a patient's prenatal care plan, where she can easily track her weight and blood pressure measurements through the app for her healthcare team to monitor and intervene when needed.

Happy to know my doctors are being kept apprised of my blood pressure and health needs. However the app does not give enough information about other questions like what foods to avoid, what over the counter meds are safe and the weekly

Problematic weight tracking
I’m mainly using this app for the weight tracking, and I have two issues with that feature. First, it seems like you cannot go back and add previous weights. Heaven forbid you forget and need to enter data a few days later! Before I had the app, I had been jotting down my weights in a notebook. I’m disappointed that I can’t add them in, especially since it would be such an easy feature to include—just let me edit the date associated with the weight!
I do like the graph visualization with the projected weight range (hence the second star I awarded this app).
My second issue is that the weight entry uses a scroll wheel that defaults to 120 lbs. Why? I have a low BMI, and I’m not at all sensitive about my weight, yet this still irked me. The average weight of women in the United States age 20-40 is 167 lbs, so if the developers were trying to set it to a helpful starting point, that seems low. Might it have something to do with 120 lbs being taken by society to be a slim ideal weight? It would be much better to simply replace the scroll wheel (and its preset starting point) with a neutral number pad. Or have the scroll wheel default to first the pre-pregnancy weight and then the most recent entry. That second option would actually be helpful.
Neither of these are huge problems, but they’re both just so simple and easy to avoid that it’s disappointing to see that the creators of this app didn’t consider them.
Bit of a let down
Contains some helpful information but the way it is provided often feels condescending. Tells you what you “can and can’t do” rather than offering recommendations with data to back those suggestions up. Refers to providers as “he” and says they may “let” you listen to the heartbeat if you “ask.” Could definitely convey the information in a more empowering way for women, considering the situation the app was designed to address.
