Fabulous App for Professional Childbirth Attendants! As a Birth Assistant and Labor doula, the information this app provides is truly invaluable. I already knew many of the things listed but that doesn't mean that there weren't plenty of topics to educate myself on. Bravo!
To all those rating this app poorly because it's "not helpful advice for a first time mother", take two minutes to learn about the amazing work that Hesperian does, and read the audience for whom this app is created - Midwives, health care workers, and women in under-developed areas with little access to information, training, and supplies. For those people, this app is a brilliant basic starting place, and the publications Hesperian puts out are invaluable, especially given that they publish them available for free. If you're lucky enough to be living in a place with access to health care, supplies, pregnancy professionals, & there's enough food that you don't need to eat insects, good for you! If what you want is a cute app that will tell you "what to expect when you're expecting" with adorable graphics of how your baby is growing; there's dozens of apps out there. Don't give a bad rating because an app wasn't what you were looking for and you failed to read the details. For what this app provides, it's brilliant and in many regions, invaluable information: even eating insects. Insects are a valued source of protein and part of the traditional diets in many, many cultures.
Imformative I guess.. Compared to other pregnancy app. This lacks personality and being related. Being a mother to be for the first time I dont feel re ensured with this app like others.
Wrong info Pineapple and papaya are not allow when you are pregnant but here it suggest to eat those and most people dont eat insects but here it says to eat insects. I dont understand why they wrote those things. Are they making fun or joking with pregnancy :@ its about new life not just new topic. So i am on doubt that is all the info are correct or not.
Informative and Clear This app is easy to read, understand, and navigate. It is a valuable tool for anyone who needs information about pregnancy and childbirth. Thanks, Hesperian!
One of the Worst Apps That I have Ever downloaded!! I am a first time mother and this has been the worst pregnancy app I have ever used.
