The Top 4 Pregnancy Apps as voted by Aussie mums

Whether it’s your first or fourth bub, pregnancy tracking apps can be a helpful and fun tool for tracking both yours and bub’s development and pregnancy journey. Of course, they’re no substitute for medical advice and if you have any concerns you should always contact your doctor or midwife. But what pregnancy apps do offer is a fun way to better connect with your baby and your own pregnancy.

We like to think of pregnancy apps as a supportive pocket pal. As our body changes during pregnancy, these apps can help prepare us for what to expect and the milestones along the way.
