From the makers of What to Expect When you are Expecting, comes “Pregnancy & Baby What to Expect”. This app designed for iOS features a week by week look at pregnancy which you can calculate using your due date and includes helpful tips, videos, foods that you can eat as well as a journal and access to online communities. This one size fits all app, provides a wealth of information all in your smartphone or tablet for you to view and review at your leisure including specific facts about your pregnancy that week, a video of what is going on during the week, common signs and symptoms an expecting mom can expect as well as access to online chat board communities.
The app provides information on a weekly basis that either compares your pregnancy to a fruit or vegetable. In addition, with the new update it includes a short video snippet of what to expect in the upcoming week as well as common symptoms and recommendations on articles to read as well as access to a journal where you can save pictures of your belly to do a slide show over time as well as access to a variety of online communities to talk with other pregnant mothers about a variety of topics. I also think it’s wonderful that the authors took a digital book and made it into an app so that you can have it in your pocket and at a glace learn the latest information about your pregnancy and how the baby is growing.
I would love to see a for kids section, as explaining pregnancy and growth to children is something they have many questions about. In addition, a listing of safe foods or foods to avoid during pregnancy as well as medications would be a helpful supplement as well.
This app is definitely for parents and it contains external links (to articles), advertising as well as internet links to communities. There are no in-app purchases which lead to the iTunes library that I have found.
