A medical company has launched an app for moms and moms-to-be offering resources such as pregnancy related articles, forums, baby developmental trackers and more.
Billed as a motherhood support app, Moms Up was designed by stem cell bank StemLife Bhd for mothers at all stages of parenthood, whether expecting a baby, caring for a young child, or even those trying to conceive.
“Being a mom today can be extremely emotionally and physically taxing. It is tough to navigate everything that goes into making sure your baby is healthy and thriving from day one,” StemLife chief executive officer Raymond Wong said in a press statement.
The app’s features include a Resources library, which the company claims is an expert-reviewed information bank with articles that cover topics like the basics of conceiving to what to expect for each trimester and even modern parenting.
The app also has a Community section, which provides a discussion forum that connects moms to one another to facilitate the exchange of advice, tips and support.
There is also a Conception Tool, a schedule keeper combining a fertility, medication and doctors’ appointment diary.
Once the couple conceives, they can utilise a host of pregnancy-related features including a kick tracker, contraction timer, pregnancy diary, delivery checklist and more.
“Parents can rest easy knowing that they can track every minute of their unborn baby and this feature also makes for easy references for their obstetrician,” explained Wong.
The last part of the app was a Parenting Tools feature that aids in monitoring the newborn baby’s meal and sleep patterns.
It also includes trackers for diaper usage, vaccinations, medication checklist plus a milestones diary for parents to make sure their baby was on the right developmental track.
The app is available for mobile devices running on Android and iOS.
