Oh baby! An NCH app for that

Friday, November 13, 2015

Expectant moms and dads always feel the urge to know the development of their baby. Now parents-to-be now have some high-tech assistance, thanks to the new NCH Baby app.

More than 300 expectant parents already have downloaded the new app, which is designed to educate expectant parents about their baby’s development, taking a month-by-month look at pregnancy. After their baby arrives, new moms and dads also can access the app for more than 100 videos that offer help with everything from newborn care to breast feeding.

The NCH Baby app features include:

  • Pregnancy advice for all 40 weeks, a pregnancy journal and an appointment tracker
  • A timeline to help decision making for prenatal tests, breastfeeding and choosing a pediatrician
  • A kick counter and contractions timer
  • Health recommendations, including vitamin and exercise guidelines
  • Information on NCH education classes for each stage of pregnancy, including sibling introduction classes, and
  • NCH fast facts on epidurals, alternative pain-control options like the use of birthing balls and showers, and where to go once in labor

The NCH Baby app is available for Apple devices in the iTunes app store, or for Android devices in the Google Play store.
