Expecting - a new mobile application for pregnant couples
Expecting.app – your no-nonsense, friendly guide through pregnancy and beyond
Getting information that you can trust about pregnancy and parenting is hard – it’s like everyone is trying to sell you a product or service. Expecting.app is different – written by independent parents and experts, it brings together everything you need to know about pregnancy, birth and beyond in an easy to understand, friendly format that encourages you to choose what’s best for you and your family. We’ve been there, and we’re here for you.
Written by independent experts
Expecting.app is the result of a collaboration between leading parents’ advocacy and education groups and independent midwives, psychologists, doulas, babywearing and car seat experts. The information in the app is based on the highest level of evidence and best practice and tips and tricks provided by parents who have been there, with no commercial interests involved.
Special content for dads
Dads-to-be also need support and information – from the 9th week of pregnancy Expecting.app offers dads tools and articles just for them.
Sync your app with your partner’s
Expecting.app offers users the ability of syncing their app with their partner’s and share information like baby names, shopping lists and more. You can un-sync at any time.
