If you care for pregnant women, you can use this app to show each woman what’s going on with her baby in seconds. If you are expecting, you can use it on your own!
Prenatal ages in this app are referenced from the start of a woman's last menstrual period (LMP).
The Little One™ Pregnancy Guide makes it easier to care for each pregnant woman by helping her understand what her baby looks like and what her baby can do throughout pregnancy. The “Guide” also makes it easy to educate your community about pregnancy and early human development.
This free app features rare footage of the living human embryo and early fetus, week-by-week summaries of development milestones throughout pregnancy, audio recordings of the prenatal heartbeat, and more. The memorable insights you provide to each pregnant woman in your care may well motivate healthy behaviors and promote maternal-fetal bonding.
Watch her marvel as you show her the beating heart in slow motion just 6½ weeks after her last menstrual period (or 4½ weeks after fertilization)! You can also show her movement of the head, jaw, tongue, hands, and feet; as well as the growing brain and liver, the emerging fingers and toes, and the placenta and umbilical cord all functioning beautifully inside the uterus!
The Little One™ Pregnancy Guide is intended for institutional and personal use. It is licensed for use in educational settings, medical settings, public places in general, and at home. You can teach students at all levels, inform your patients, train your staff, and present at professional conferences. You can present to youth groups, community groups, and home school groups. You can also recommend the Little One™ Pregnancy Guide to your family and friends, and pregnant women everywhere. The Guide is ad free and is available at no charge.
The Little One™ Pregnancy Guide was developed by The Endowment for Human Development (EHD), a nonprofit organization specializing in prenatal development education.
The video clips featured in this free app are from EHD’s award-winning science documentary, The Biology of Prenatal Development, which presents normal human prenatal development from fertilization to birth. It is distributed by National Geographic and has been endorsed by medical researchers, embryology and obstetrics experts, and high school teachers. The video excerpts have been renarrated and modified for use on mobile platforms.

Wonderful tool for pregnancy centers
We recently started using the Little One App with our clients and we love it! We currently use ultrasound in our clinic but many of our clients are not far enough along for an ultrasound the first time we see them. Using the Little One App at this critical time is very beneficial because it gives them visual and audible confirmation that they are carrying a life. The pictures in utero are so good we feel like they are often more effective even than ultrasound in the early stages of pregnancy. We also use this app with our parenting classes which allows our clients to visually see what is going throughout their pregnancy. They are often surprised and emotional seeing the videos of actual babies in the womb that are at the same gestational age as their own. We have also used this app with youth groups in the community and plan to use it in the schools in our abstinence program in the future. We highly recommend this app to anyone who wants a visual and audible way of sharing life in the womb.

A view in the womb...
Being able to see inside the womb has given me such great understanding to the development of the unborn child from the beginning to end. It brings academic knowledge to life as I see a 7 week old baby inside the uterus. WOW! This helps us improve pregnancy outcomes when we use this to help the mom understand what is happening to her baby within her. Now the importance of knowing how to care for herself and her unborn baby is real. Thank you so much for this great tool!
Needs license to view more
Really nice app but I need a license to go past the 8 weeks view. I don't know how to get the license number they are asking me for. Too bad because this is a really awesome app!!
