There are lots of apps available out there for expectant and new mums (and dads). A lot of them offer similar resources and information such as health advice, week by week pregnancy trackers etc but there are also lots of unique features and many of you end up using more than one on a regular basis.
Either way they can be a fantastic source of information and comfort for you as an expectant mum, helping you discover all the changes that will happen to your body as baby grows, what to expect at each stage as well as loads of useful advice and product offers. Once baby arrives many of these apps also allow you to track baby’s development.
Of course nothing can replace the advice you receive from your doctor or midwife but its great to have a bank of information on hand as well as access to other benefits such as product discounts that many offer.
