New, free app makes pregnancy easier

24 March 2014

Are you expecting an addition to your family? Pregnant women now have something else to be excited about while they await the arrival of their new baby. Netcare has just launched a pregnancy app on iOS and Android platforms which can be downloaded free of charge.

"The Netcare Pregnancy app will provide expectant mothers and their partners with easily accessible and reliable information and tips on pregnancy-related matters, and also offers a number of handy features," says Tumi Nkosi, marketing director for the Netcare group.

"The Netcare Pregnancy app features a dashboard for quick reference to aspects such as the size and gestational age of your unborn baby, as well as a special countdown calendar to ensure that parents-to-be are well prepared for the big day. In addition, the app incorporates information and tips on a number of pregnancy-related topics such as nutrition, fitness, sexual health, caring for your skin, hair and nails, emergencies during pregnancy and preparing for labour," explains Thabo Matime, general manager: sales and new product development at Netcare.

Matime adds that a week-by-week guide gives insight into the physiological and emotional changes moms-to-be are likely to experience during every stage of pregnancy, as well as detailed information on a baby's  development, from the time of fertilisation and conception right up to birth. It also alerts expectant parents on things to be on the lookout for. There’s also a function enabling users to locate the nearest Netcare gynaecologist, obstetrician and hospital in their area and dial any of these with just one touch of a button.

"The Netcare Pregnancy app is simple to navigate and contains reliable information that can be accessed anywhere and anytime," says Nkosi.
