Best Pregnancy Apps

When I was pregnant in 2020, honestly there were a dozen of advices flowing from everyone and everywhere, like literally. I mean there is nothing wrong if someone wants to pass on their knowledge about the most beautiful phase of a woman. But a few times, I used to wonder if I should follow the old grandma tricks or the modern science related recommendations of a new mother. When you counter question your closed ones, a few times it may lead to an awkward situation. And Google literally used to guide me to run to my gynecologist since I may be experiencing something really bad.

Well, you get the point, right?! So, I downloaded a few apps suggested by a few new mothers and the best rated ones on the appstore and playstore. And my life just got better. Of course, if I had any doubts, I would always ask my gynecologist during my monthly visits but when I wasn’t sure of something, these apps came in handy both during pregnancy and postpartum as well.

So, we have rounded off 10 best pregnancy apps that you need to track your pregnancy. Let’s check ’em out!

1. Baby Center

iOS Rating – 4.9

Android Rating – 5

This is one of the best pregnancy apps that most moms-to-be suggest. Personally I loved this app so much that most of my pregnancy journey was covered with this app. First of all, it shows a weekly progression of the little human inside you. The pictoral representations are simple and easy to understand. It also has 3D renderings of your baby’s developments. The app uses examples like fruits and vegetables to portray the growth of the baby. Along with the pictures, there’s a small write up on the baby’s development each week. I would be super curious with each passing week to check out these developments.

Also, there’s an option to click your bump each week and post it online. You can share it with others or just keep it private. There’s a social network to connect with other expecting moms and a library full of useful articles and links. This app is  also helpful for people who are trying to conceive as it has an ovulation calendar. You can also use this app once the baby is born for a growth tracker and the developments that you can expect in the coming weeks.

Baby Center is considered to be one of the best pregnancy apps as it has short videos, less than a minute, which gives you an insight about delivery processes, prenatal exercises, breastfeeding support and many more. It also has an option of “Is it safe?” for common food and activities. It also includes a kick tracker and a contraction timer in the app. Well. hands down to an all-in-one app that prepares you right from conceiving to raising your little one!

2. What to Expect

iOS Rating – 4.9

Android Rating – 4.8

Now the second app that we recommend is What to Expect. As the name suggests, this app gives an insight of what to expect during your pregnancy and postnatal phase. The best part of this app is the visually appealing and aesthetic interface. It not only provides the information of the baby but compares your baby’s size with cool and nostalgic TV props. A very fun way to track, indeed! It includes 3D rendering of the baby, information of the anatomical developments, common symptoms, changes in your body.

Just like the Baby Center app, it has a social network and also has specific separate groups where you can connect with other moms-to-be who are having babies within the same month. You can connect with international moms-to-be and more features! You can track your ovulation and it also includes due date calendar.

3. Sprout Pregnancy

Well, we have included Sprout in our list of best pregnancy apps because of the unique feature of 3D video renderings of your womb, which is quite similar to medical imaging. You can toggle and view your baby in different angles. But this app isn’t free. Well, with such a cool feature that is worth highlighting, it’s okay to have to spend a little money.

The app also contains a pregnancy timeline that is elaborated, a library of informational resources and to-do checklists for the moms-to-be. There is also information on the screening tests timeline and a birth plan feature. The only con of this app is that there is no social networking feature like the other top apps. If you’re residing in a remote place then this app is helpful to check about your baby’s growth and with the feature of compelling 3D imaging, you can experience real lifelike interactive movements.

4. Ovia

iOS Rating – 4.9

Android Rating – 4.8

The Ovia pregnancy app has features like personalized timeline of your baby’s anatomical development, symptoms of your pregnancy, 3D renderings of the baby, safety tools, food and medication. It also has a library of informational articles. Personally, I loved the fact that you can feed all your information in the app and it allows for comprehensive data collection. From fetal movement to nutrition to your workout, everything can be viewed in graphs. I love to see my progress visually and graphs are easy to grasp and track. If you’re someone who loves data visualization, then this app is for you!

You can track your pregnancy milestones and there are also illustrations of your baby’s current hand and foot size. You can even connect with other moms-to-be.

Pregnancy isn’t an easy journey. And postpartum is the next level to test your patience. Lol! I’m not scaring you with these statements. As beautiful as the journey is, there will be down moments that you can’t quite explain to anyone. This includes your partner as well. There are times you may feel low or go through anxious moments or feel stressful. That’s why Peanut has created a unique community app to get connected with other moms-to-be and moms who want to connect with each other in same geographical area.

It’s a great app for when you want to discuss things, make new friends and there are even small video chats every week on many topics. You can host yourself or be a part of the group. The best feature is getting connected to moms near your place. I have made quite a few friends through the app and I really recommend it.

8. 280 Days

iOS Rating – 4.2

Android Rating – 4.2

We have an interesting app in our list of the best pregnancy apps – 280 Days. As the name suggests, it is the number of days of your pregnancy journey. I love maintaining journals and I started keeping one the moment I got to know about the good news. But I was not quite consistent with it and my notes were all over the place. I had my diary, my pregnancy apps, my ipad, my notes app on my mobile, ugh! And now I have no time to put everything together and re-cherish. Of course, I keep going through them once in a while here and there. But I wish I had everything in one place like a book, perhaps.

I think the gods have heard my cry and here’s an app that allows you to journal your journey throughout you pregnancy and allows you to convert it into a book. Yes, you heard it right. You can buy the book at the end. Maybe next time, I can do this 😉 It also includes other features like tracking your baby’s growth, your body changes, weight gain and your doctor’s appointments.

From symptoms tracker to kick counter to appointment organizer, this app has it all. There are also articles that show up based on the stage of pregnancy you’re in. It also has a feature where there are articles on the kind of questions you need to ask during your doctor’s visit.

The in-depth visuals of your baby in the womb can be accessed via 3D rendering and it is more detailed compared to other top apps. It is a great app if you’ve been a fan of WebMD and the features are good enough. I wish they had included a community networking feature, too, then this app would have made to the top in our list of best pregnancy apps.

10. My Pregnancy

iOS Rating – 4.8

Android Rating – 4.6

This app is simple with a clean and clutter free interface. It doesn’t go overboard with information and doesn’t provide out-of-the-box articles like baby’s name ideas or a guess the gender games. It has weekly analysis of the growth of your baby and your body and some useful tips. There is also a weight tracker and a kick counter. However, there are no features like 3D rendering or a social networking. If you want an app that just helps you provide the information on what to expect in the coming days of your pregnancy journey, then this app is appropriate for you.
