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.

Exactly What I Needed

Ability to start and stop timer easily. Keeps track of when contractions started, how long they lasted, and how long since last contraction. Also easy to edit if you forget to stop the timer, and ability to delete contractions which is great for false alarms or incorrect times.
Only thing I have noticed is sometimes when I open the app, the timer has been going on for many hours. But perhaps that is user error in not turning it off correctly. :)

Add to lock screen or Control Center

I am a super new user for this app and I like the simplicity of the app design and layout. It would be awesome to have this app at the ready on either at the Lock Screen or Control Center pull down menu for iPhone! I understand that with the watch on it’s a quicker route to access but it’s something that I don’t have on 24/7 or at the ready like my iPhone device. Just a suggestion 😊!

I had a contraction this morning and used another app to track it as I had not yet found this app and I realized that I had to go through so many steps to get to the tracker and that’s why I downloaded this app. I like that I can take the information from the other app and add it to this app for accurate tracking in the future.

Easy to use. Could use some improvements.

This app is very simple and easy to use. When one is having a contraction this is much appreciated. Where I think it falls short is in access and the graphs.
Having the app be available on the lock screen would certainly bring it up a level. Sometimes unlocking ones phone doesn’t happen upon first attempt. Add in having a contraction and frustration ensues. By the time you get to the app the contraction is half over (I realize you can manually adjust the time of the contraction, but hear me out)
Next, the graphs. I would recommend seeking a consultant for help on how best to lay out the data. Currently it doesn’t make sense. The time shouldn’t be on the y-axis.
