WebMD have a new pregnancy app. It’s been developed with careful guidance from featured pediatrician Hansa Bhargava, MD. Healthy Family was contacted by WebMD a few weeks ago and offered a phone interview with Dr. Bhargava about this fabulous new free pregnancy app for moms to be. I encourage you to download the app and test drive it yourself. We’d love to hear what you think about it.
After being pregnant 4 times I’ve found myself using several types of media to get information and record data. I’ve used pregnancy books, a coybely pocket doppler and searched the website throughout for useful parenting technology. Most pregnancy apps only offer a few features. WebMD Pregnancy app was designed to be a multifunctional app.

This is a promotional review done in conjunction with a newborn baby gift basket giveaway. The opinions are completely honest and my own. I was in no way compensated to offer my opinion or paid to review the app. Nor was I obligated to offer a review of the product in addition to hosting the promotional giveaway.
