Sweden has one of the best health care systems in the world and an almost zero maternal death rate. Most people would be content with that, but we want more. We believe that knowledge is power, and that more knowledge increases the chance of a safe pregnancy and childbirth. Through Preglife, we aim to empower women and their partners by providing accurate, up-to-date information so that they can make the best choices for themselves and their families. It is toward this end that we created Preglife in the first place, and it is why the team shows up every day at the office where we devote ourselves to making this app the best it can be.
When Preglife was first launched in Sweden back in 2010 we had no idea the impact it would have on Swedish society. We know now. Preglife is presently used by more than 90% of all mothers-to-be in Sweden and by roughly 75% of all mothers-to-be in Northern Europe.
Now we are on a mission to empower the women and families living in the U.S. by sharing all the wonderful knowledge we have accumulated. Information provided in this app stems from the latest pregnancy and childbirth research and has been written by, or in collaboration with, health care professionals such as doctors, midwifes, and others. Ahead of the U.S. release, health care professionals working in the U.S. have modified the details for the U.S. market.
Preglife has both a pregnancy calendar and a baby development tracker. The pregnancy calendar contains weekly texts to guide you and your partner through all the weeks of your pregnancy. Some weeks you will even find tutorial videos based on photographs by world-famous Swedish photographer Lennart Nilsson.
The baby development tracker helps you track your baby’s development after birth. Use the app to monitor the ten mental leaps that occur during your baby’s first 75 weeks as defined by Dutch researchers Van De Rijt & Plooij in 2006. We also provide monthly information regarding your baby’s physical and mental development along with tips and advice about your baby, parenting and couple’s guidance.
Preglife has a steadily growing archive of articles, a video-on-demand (VOD) service and other smart tools that can be very useful.
Time flies. To help you remember this hectic time in your life we have included a diary and photo section where you can store memories, thoughts and ideas.
Last but not least, we would like to welcome you to Preglife and wish you the very best of luck!
