Here's a hint... It works just fine... But I'll say one thing... If you're using it you're probably not in established labour! Once I got properly started I didn't want to be doing with it anymore. Seems to be the best way to tell. Your contractions can be 5 mins apart right from the beginning. It was when I was getting impatient with people asking me questions that I knew I was right to be phoning the hospital. Then again, some people pop their babas out really quick whereas my labour was a 36 hour odyssey.
17 Sept 2016 baby - used to 5min apart 1min contraction This app was precise with helping me track contractions, reporting to midwives, and when to go to hospital, without having to focus on a watch. It helped when to expect the next one and see pattern to judge what to do. There is no time for messing about on paper or in your head! It saves you being in hospital too long. I was 9cm dilated when I arrived.
Exactly what a birthing partner needs This app is simple and intuitive. It has everything you need in exactly the right spot. As a partner you don't have time to be fiddling around trying to understand the information on a complex screen like other apps offer. This app is straight and to the point. I'm glad I switched to it before things really took off. The notification is great for the surprise attack contractions too.
Awesome app Very easy to use especially during very painful contractions! All you do is hit start and stop and the app does the rest! I used this app to time my contractions last week when I was in labor with my daughter! Works great and has everything neatly displayed! You can even leave a comment next to each contraction if you want.
Used through to 9cm dialated So easy to use, I wanted to labor at home as long as possible- once contractions started they were 4 minutes apart and I was able to keep track easily through to 2-3 minutes apart and got to the hospital at 9.5cm dilated. Simple and straightforward, much needed during such an intense time!
Great and reliable! A great app - using it to time the early contractions of our 2nd child. Simple to use and a great UI to boot. Two minor suggestions: let me add manual entries (for those times when the phone is just out of reach) and show the average duration/interval values for a quick summary!
Complete rewrite of application, for users with Android 4+ phones:
- Uses the Android Holo theme.
- Can edit any entry.
- Can add comments to entries.
- Added a recent contractions graph.
- Can continue timing the most recent contraction.
- For users who have purchased Contraction Timer Donate, added ability to share times using Android Beam (NFC).
Please note that if your phone doesn't have Android 4 or newer, it will still use the old version of the app.
