Birthwatch on Facebook

http://apps.facebook.com/birthwatch/

How cool is this? An app on Facebook customized to the pregnant woman, with suggestions and tips for reading, providers, tips for comfort, etc!

The BirthWatch app allows you to:

  • Share updates on your pregnancy with your friends, along with a visual ticker showing where you are in your pregnancy
  • Receive timely emails containing tips and recommendations to prepare for your child’s birth
  • You control how frequently updates are posted
  • Don’t worry, we’ll keep things quiet in the first trimester if that’s what you want

This application was developed by Kim and Pat James. Kim James is a Lamaze International and ICEA certified childbirth educator and a DONA International certified birth doula who has helped prepare hundreds of parents for childbirth.

BirthWatch application content tends towards the practical and physiological. You won’t find a lot of fluff here, just sound information to help you prepare for the new addition to your family. We built this app because we believe effective parenting is one of the best ways to improve the world, and parenting begins with pregnancy and birth!

Get started by updating us with your due date and preferences on the Settings tab
