Best Apps for Pregnant Women
If you've been thinking of having a baby, it can be a little challenging to understand the best time within your cycle for the highest success rate.

Would you ever consider using a Smartphone app?

There are two apps that women from all over have praised for helping them throughout their pre-pregnancy and pregnancy journeys.

Used by nearly 1.6 million pregnant women in the U.S. last year, the "I'm Expecting" app (Android, iOS) is a free all-in-one pregnancy tracker and comprehensive mobile resource to keep moms-to-be informed about changes to their bodies and their growing baby.

The I'm Expecting app by MedHelp, is currently being used by 40 percent of the nation's expecting mothers and was named one of this year's Best Pregnancy iPhone and Android Apps by Healthline.

I'm Expecting keeps track of everything that's happening to moms-to-be and their growing baby, guiding them day-by-day through their entire pregnancy with expert tips and advice, checklists and to-dos, video and article resources, and weekly notifications and reminders.

I'm Expecting also includes a weight tracker, baby bump photo diary and pregnancy journal, registry and baby naming recommendations, as well as an interactive support forum to connect with other moms-to-be in the same week of pregnancy to compare symptoms, ask questions (uh... is this normal?) and share their journeys.

How else do these apps help women who want to get pregnant, as well as the moms-to-be?

Listen in as Katherine Solem, Editorial Director for MedHelp, shares the two best apps for women's health if you're planning on starting a family.
