Pregnancy Apps Do Everything But Ease Labor Pain

Technology—you love it or hate it BUT it just might be a good source of much needed information for new parents. A quick search of the iTunes App Store confirms there is no lack of apps dedicated to pregnancy-related categories including pregnancy tracker, pregnancy information, pregnancy test, pregnancy games, free pregnancy apps, pregnancy apps for kids, pregnancy countdown and pregnancy week by week, just to name a few. It appears that pregnancy tracker apps are more popular now than fitness tracker apps. Who knew?

There are apps designed to help you get pregnant as well as track your pregnancy. An app also can help you understand how your baby is developing in the womb. Other apps exist to help you monitor the progress and habits of your new baby regarding development, sleeping patterns and other important considerations.

The New York Times recently published an article that addressed some of the latest apps helpful to new parents.  As the author notes, how did we ever have babies before apps came along?
