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.

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.

Works well, but one fix would help!

This worked great for timing my contractions when I went into labor. It’s easy to edit the start/end time if I missed hitting the button in time. ONE COMPLAINT that would be an easy fix: when my water broke, I hit the water button and made a note of the color. When I got to the hospital, I looked back to see what time my water had broken, and I realized the app did not save the time!! I see now there’s an “edit” button at the top to add a time, but this was not obvious to me mid-labor in the middle of the night. What would be better is if a time automatically populates when the user hits the water button—with the option to edit it she needs. But not having a default time is a bummer.

At the end of the day, the hospital was happy with a rough estimate, but I was a little annoyed because I took the time to note it in the app.
