Comments: This app is for pregnant people and their support people. The app is a convenient way to keep track of your contractions. You press a button at the start and end of each contraction and are then able to rate the intensity on a linear scale. You can view your contraction history.
There is also a kick chart, a weight tracker and pregnancy information.
Overall, this is a straightforward, simple app that makes it easy to track your contractions and fetal kicks. It provides basic information on pregnancy care.
Safety concerns: The app does not provide any interpretation of what to do with different contraction patterns or ‘red flags’ such as green liquor when waters break.
New Zealand relevance: Not NZ specific, but relevant.
