From WebMD's trusted health information and personalized multimedia content, to fun features including the digital Baby Belly Slideshow and the Pregnancy Journal, the WebMD Pregnancy app helps moms celebrate the milestones along their pregnancy journey, anytime, anywhere.

"Informed prenatal care is critical to helping support a healthy pregnancy as well as knowing what to expect as the body changes," said Dr. Hansa Bhargava, WebMD pediatrician. "The WebMD Pregnancy app is the perfect combination of trusted medical information and fun, shareable content to assist expectant moms throughout their pregnancy."

In a recent WebMD survey of moms and moms-to-be, more than 40% of respondents noted that since becoming pregnant, their use of mobile phones to search for information or share photos has increased. 2 With the WebMD Pregnancy app, expectant moms can now easily share photos from their phone with the Baby Belly Slideshow and Pregnancy Journal throughout their pregnancy. Nearly 60% of the survey respondents typically use multiple pregnancy apps, either because no single app has had all of the preferred functions or because they differ in their functionality. 3 The WebMD Pregnancy app offers what moms want, including updates on baby's development, questions to ask at the next doctor's visit, tracking of doctor's appointments, and trusted health information.

The WebMD Pregnancy app's interactive features and customizable tools and content enable expectant moms to have open and informative dialogue with their physicians as they prepare for their special day.
