If you happen to have a little one on the way then you’ll definitely want to download this pregnancy app and keep it handy for when your contractions start. It will enable you to monitor the frequency and duration of each contraction so that you’ll know when the big moment is getting closer.The best iPad apps for pregnancy
The Full Term labor app contains a wonderfully simplistic interface which I think suits its purpose perfectly, and I can definitely imagine a lot of parents getting a great deal of benefit out of it. I would definitely recommend storing this little gem of a giving birth app on your iPhone so it’ll be there when you need it most.
This app for baby delivery runs on devices with iOS 11.0 and watchOS 4.0 or later with support of up to iOS 14.0 and it is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. It will need 51.7 MB of free memory space on your mobile device to download and install. Take a look at our best pregnancy apps list for more options.
The first thing you’ll see when you first start using Full Term - Labor Contraction Timer is a bunch of blank timers which show the different duration and frequency of your last contraction, as well as the average duration and frequency for your contractions over the last hour and the last six hours, respectively.The best baby naming apps for iPhone and iPad
Before you start the timer, I would recommend spending a few minutes acquainting yourself the various features of the app and the layout in general, and I would particularly recommend taking a look at the Reference section.
The References section breaks down the labor process into four distinct phases which are Early Labor, Active Labor, Transition, and of course Delivery. Within each of these phases are prescribed figures for the duration and frequency of your contractions, as well as how many centimeters you should be dilated by that point.
If you are expecting your first child then labor can be a rather alarming and disorientating experience, so I think that having this point of reference is great so that you can glimpse at it and immediately know which phase of labor you’re currently experiencing.Best iphone and ipad apps
All of the records you log using the built-in timer will be added to a list which you can view by tapping the Details button in the top-left hand corner of the Timer section.
This displays the duration, frequency, and start time of each contraction, and you can also tap on each one to specify the intensity level as well as adding your own personal notes.
Full Term - Labor Contraction Timer is almost certainly a must-have app for all parents-to-be. Having the peace of mind that a tangible point of reference can provide is invaluable in keeping your stress levels down during labor, which can only be a good thing for your baby as well!
