With so many apps focused around the baby’s health, this app focuses on keeping mom healthy during pregnancy. With a food tracker, healthy eating tips and suggestions, prenatal vitamin reminders, and even a sleep monitoring feature, Ovia makes it easier to keep track of your own health and growth during pregnancy.
With countdown trackers and daily/weekly updates, a forum to connect with other moms, and an endless source of information easily searchable for your specific symptom, trimester, or experience, this app is full of features and a must-have for expecting mothers.
