New App is Available for Prenatal Support
How an app has evolved into prenatal advice in a smartphone
Pregnant? There’s an app for that. Last year, Max Levchin founded Glow, a smartphone app that helps women conceive and have now developed an updated the app to assist women post-pregnancy. Glow Nurture advises women on prenatal nutrition, milestones to watch for and provides a community for women and partners to discuss their experiences with the pregnancy process.
When women log into Glow Nurture, they can record their personal information and symptoms. The app then compares women’s personal data to what has been gathered on the site. For instance, if a woman has a particular concern, she can enter in her information and the database in Glow Nurture will compare that information with the research gathered. If the symptom or questions seems to be a particular concern, the app will tell the woman whether she should see her doctor and what to ask.
