Whether you’re planning on falling pregnant, expecting your little bub any day, or adjusting to life as a new mum, these 6 apps will become your new best friend. From tracking your ovulation to helping your baby sleep, you’ll find everything you need (without being inundated with choices) to make motherhood just that little bit easier.
Mums To Be
An all-in-one app that includes articles for every step of your pregnancy, checklists, and tips on parenting. There’s new content daily, a registry with over 15,000 products, and an album that lets you photograph and follow the progress of your growing belly.
For women who are planning on falling pregnant, the Ovia Fertility Tracker is a super accurate period tracker and ovulation calculator that’ll help you plan your best chances to get pregnant. There’s everything from a mood tracker, health tracker, real-time health alerts, and over 2,000 expert advice articles.
White Noise Baby
Help your new little bub get a good night’s sleep (and you too) with this simple app. Noise options include classical music, a car ride, a vacuum, conch shell, and a doppler ultrasound of the womb. The good thing is that it basically does everything for you, so you don’t need to fuss with it – there’s a timer which also works on noise detection (it’ll start playing again if it hears crying), Baby Mode that helps to avoid bedtime interruptions, and a log that’ll help you keep track of your baby’s sleep cycle.
Perfect for new parents, this app helps you keep track of your child’s food, sleep, medicine, nappy, and bath habits. You can sync it across different devices so that both parents can be across everything, follow timelines to get a better understanding of your child’s patterns, and receive comprehensive reports and graphs.
For when you need some relaxation in your life. Headspace helps you to practice meditation and mindfulness with some brain training sessions that you can squeeze in when you have a free 10 minutes throughout your day.
For the mums who want to get back into the swing of things, Sworkit offers personalised work outs for all fitness levels without disrupting your day. Enter a 6 week program aimed at what you want to achieve, customise your exercises, and fit in a work out no matter where you are.
