What does the app do?

The Sprout pregnancy app allows you to keep track of where you are at in your pregnancy. Users enter their due date and the app automatically tracks the pregnancy week by week. Each time the app is accessed, the screen shows a 3D image of a developing baby (foetus) at the appropriate gestational age along with a pregnancy timeline. 

The app also provides information on the pregnancy investigations and tests that are done at various times during pregnancy, and antenatal care. It provides advice on diet and the symptoms people may be experiencing at different stages of pregnancy. There are also sections on a birth plan, hospital bag planning, a kick counter, a contraction timer and medication tracker. There is a space for a personal journal and you can customise it to send you reminders.
