There’s an app for lots of things these days, and now CoxHealth is offering an app for expectant parents.

The health system’s BabyBeginnings smartphone app is being called “a one-stop source for medically-founded information from conception to birth and beyond.”

Dr. Staci Niemoth (NEE-muth), medical director of Women’s Services at CoxHealth, says expectant moms always have questions about the changes they’re experiencing, and this app gives them vetted information that’s available at the touch of a button.

The free app includes information on pregnancy, labor and newborn care.  It also includes an appointment tracker, a contraction timer and more. 

According to CoxHealth, "all of the app's offerings are prepared by medical professionals, and reflect the industries most recent standards and recommendations."
