Ratings and Reviews
Not very user friendly
Overall not a very user friendly app.
I’m breastfeeding and don’t care if something safe for pregnancy or not, but when I go to my bookmarked drugs, it shows one icon of whether it’s safe in the first trimester or not. So in my bookmarks, I’ve got a big red X next to some of my drugs that are safe for breastfeeding.
The app doesn’t take up the full screen on my iPhone. Makes me feel like this is a really old app that hasn’t been updated since the new iPhones. I don’t want an app that’s never updating to tell me what’s safe for my baby.
If you accidentally open the camera to scan, it won’t let you go back so you’ve gotta shut down the whole app.
I also wish I'd downloaded this sooner- so convenient, and great comfort knowing the ratings come from a great research group. Much more trustworthy (and easy) than doing your own internet searches about safety. Also, there's a lot of healthcare providers who simply don't know if medications are safe, so they just tell you to "pump and dump" or even quit breastfeeding when neither is required for baby's safety and makes breastfeeding a greater challenge for us moms. Great resource, easy to use and understand, highly recommend!
MommyMeds is a Great Investment
Being pregnant for the first time is scary enough without having to worry about if your medicine is safe to take or not. I trust MommyMeds to give me the most recent information regarding the safety various medications.
I love that MommyMeds is also customizable based on the trimester of pregnancy. By using this app I learned that Ibuprofen can cause birth defects if used during pregnancy but may be safe for use by a breastfeeding mother after the baby is born. This is invaluable information that all mothers need to have access to!
