The most used and trusted Contraction Timer in the App Store! Trusted by Doctors and Doulas all over the world. Includes a built-in Kick Counter and other useful tools!

This application is the most convenient way to keep track of your labor contractions. I created this application for use during my own wife's labor and have paid special attention to keeping the interface as clean and clutter free as possible.

You have to tap a single button to track the start and end of each of your contractions, and "Full Term" will take care of the rest. The application is designed to keep track of the times, durations and frequency of the entire labor period.

Your full labor history and contraction progress will be saved regardless of whether you restart the application during a contraction or restart the entire device. There is no need to keep this application open the whole time. Of course, you can also email your contraction history to a health care professional or for your records.

In addition, you get a full featured Fetal Kick counter and a handy pregnancy reference section that you can use to brush up your knowledge.

Has “Dark Mode” setting!😍

Very helpful. Very user friendly during labor. It’s a free app. And If you want to disable adds then it’s a one time purchase of 0.99 - which I did so that it didn’t interrupt the ease of use during the night time contractions (which gene contractions were far enough apart to get a little rest in between). Everything is calculated for you, so that you don’t have to calculate how far apart your contractions are, their duration etc. am Not All Apps Make it this Easy to Track!!!

DARK MODE Setting!!! The last thing a mamma wants is BLUE LIGHT disruptions during the night, affecting the ability to rest between contractions during early stages of active labor. This setting was what made me get the app I’m the first place, but was pleasantly surprised and impressed by everything I mentioned above. Definitely the best tracker out of the 3 that I tried/experimented with. 🙌

Thank you to whoever created this!

Best contraction timer app!

This was the perfect app to time my contractions. Easy to use, even during labor. Captured everything needed- duration and intensity. I liked being able to see the contraction history and averages and shared this with my doula and midwife to communicate progress before going to the hospital. Made it easy to see when it was time to go to the hospital. Best contraction timer app!

I am currently re-using the app to track my baby’s crying. She is two months and starting to have periods of fussiness. Wish I could find another version of this app where I could track duration and intensity of crying as well as baby’s feeding and diapers, and what I eat to help identify potential correlation between what I eat and her green diaper or fussiness. Haven’t found a baby or breastfeeding app out there that tracks crying as well as this one would, or that tracks mom’s diet.

Best App for a FTM

During my birthing classes it was recommended to find a contraction counter so started searching and, honestly, I must have gone through every app available and completely hated the majority. The kick counter available on this app was a great bonus but the contraction counter is definitely the best free one out there.

During the first couple of hours of contractions when I wasn’t sure if I was going through “real labor” this made it very easy to track that my contractions were progressively closer together even tho it was a slower progression. Later, the large button to start the timer made it easy for me to hit the start and still accurately track my times even at the points when I didn’t want to look at my phone and break my focus.

Also to be noted, the app is user friendly enough that I could hand my phone to either of my support persons who had never used it and they could easily understand how to read the information without me having to explain the app over and again.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone and especially FTMs who aren’t completely sure what they are watching for with their first labor.
