There are so many pregnancy apps out there that it can get a little overwhelming.
We’ve done the work for you and collated a list of the top apps of the year filled with advice, tips and friendships to guide you on your latest chapter.
Babyname - to help you decide
Say goodbye to arguments over the perfect baby name, there’s an app for that! Babyname lets you and your partner scroll through suggested names, swiping right for the ones you like and then matching the ones you both agree on, making the decision just that little bit easier - and fun!
Emma’s Diary - for quality advice
With this app, you will get trusted advice from midwives, plus tips and offers. You will also get size updates week by week, and can even create your own time lapse pregnancy videos!
Headspace - to help you relax
An app most commonly known for different types of meditating, Headspace offers a pregnancy pack. With the anticipation of giving birth, health of your baby and a million other things on your mind. Headspace is available to help you with the here and now. Its aim is for you to achieve a clearer, calmer state and to create the best possible conditions for your little one.
Peanut - to be part of the parenting community
The Peanut app has been hailed as a community for motherhood. It’s an app that helps mothers connect and learn from like-minded women. After signing up, you will be matched to a number of women in your area with similar-aged children and shared interests. It encourages mothers to chat, arrange meetups and share experiences based on meaningful topics.
Of course, once you’ve had your baby, the best app we could recommend is of course the Owlet app! When synced with the Smart Sock and Cam, it lets you track your baby’s heart rate and oxygen levels, ensuring that they’re ok.
