Pregnant and nursing mothers NEED this app.

I often suffered in silence during my pregnancy/ early postpartum because I was so nervous about what I was taking in and how it’d affect my baby. Google results will literally return anything that coincides with your search, so it was nearly impossible to get straight answers sometimes.
This app did away with my medication anxiety completely. It provides study data on so many medications I thought I couldn’t take and tells me exactly whether or not I can take it. It’s great!

We're so glad we can help! This is exactly why we exist. Providers often aren't trained on how to answer these questions, but moms' health matters too!

New update big problem but fixed with re-install

I removed and then re-installed the app and it works well again. So thankful as I use this very frequently.
This is my “go to” app for pregnancy and breastfeeding safety and patient counseling. Now the app doesn’t work at all. Nothing loads and I have been unable to use it. Very frustrating. Please fix it.

Design, missing some data

Overall design is a little cumbersome to utilize. There isn’t much data on certain medications in the app despite there being tons of studies on their use in pregnancy. So I end up wading through a bunch of PubMed articles despite buying this app. Also, it is sometimes difficult to search for meds- like propranolol (very commonly used) isn’t even on there. A little weird. It wasn’t expensive to buy, I just don’t find it useful and will instead be using Epocrates or PubMed.

Developer Response ,

Hi Alison, I’m sorry for the trouble you had. Propranolol is in our database, and I suspect there was a problem in the interface loading medications making it cumbersome. Please email if your trouble persists. We spend plenty of time combing through PubMed…our goal is that you shouldn’t have to!
