iPhone Apps for Soon-To-Be Moms

Pregnancy brings about many changes in a woman’s life. From the moment of conception down to the day of delivery, the next 9 months will prove to be the most exciting, scary, and ultimately fulfilling journey for any lady to take.

You will have an onslaught of new information and responsibilities thrown at you from all directions. Monthly doctor’s appointments, daily pre-natal vitamins, ultrasound appointments, and a long list of do’s and don’ts are just a few of the things that you’ll need to keep track of. Online calculators like this ovulation date predictor will help you get the pregnancy started, but it’s the iPhone and its bevy of apps that will make pregnant life easier.

Here are 5 of our top iPhone app picks for newly pregnant women:

1. Pregnancy Companion

Packed with a library of important information and resources for expecting mothers. The pregnancy companion comes with diet guidelines, hydration monitor, calorie tracker, kick counter, contraction timer, and even a recipe booklet especially dedicated to satisfy pregnancy cravings.

2. Sprout for iPhone

One of the most popular pregnancy apps for the iPhone, this unique mobile software features a remarkable 3D visualization of the fetal growth along with a weight counter and thousands of health tips for both the baby and mom-to-be.

3. Pregnancy Buzz

A godsend for confused first-time mothers unsure of what to do, what to eat, and what to expect, this app is teeming with tips, information, and real advice from actual mothers. The Pregnancy Buzz for iPhone apps ensures that you will never have to feel at a loss ever again.

4. Share my Pregnancy

Questions, questions, questions…that’s what you can expect from friends and family (even strangers) during your 9 months. Instead of answering the same questions over and over again, you can keep a log of your pregnancy experiences and important information that can be shared with your loved ones. That way everyone is up-to-date and you can limit the endless phone calls.

5. iPregnancy

Designed to store and keep track of all vital information such as blood pressure, body weight, fetal heart rate, and ultrasound images, this app will make every doctor’s visit a breeze.

Thanks to these recent advances in technology, moms-to-be can now have all the help they need in the palm of their hand.

    Track your pregnancy with the “Memory Jar” app for iPhone/iPad

    We are excited to announce our newest app that is slated to be released to the App Store on December 18th, “Memory Jar.” This app will provide parents, friends and families the ability to capture the small, but exciting things that happen during the year. Let’s face it, the big memories are never forgotten, but those little things that happen during your pregnancy are the ones that tend to get forgotten forever. Memory Jar allows the mom-to-be to store those very special memories on her iOS device (iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, iPad mini) and then create a slideshow at the end of the year to watch. Imagine being able to capture your baby bump each week, the first kick, or when you found out it was going to be a boy or girl! http://memoryjar.jebsapps.com/app/
