Let me guess: you’ve got that plus sign or those two red lines! While you likely have a mix of feelings, the strongest is probably excitement. New pregnancies often set off an emotional roller-coaster, and it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. Especially for first time parents! As with anything, feelings are easier to process when you have the information and a network of support to assist you throughout your journey.
When I found myself newly pregnant a little less than two years ago, I had lots of questions but no one to ask them. So I did what many do in the era of technology – I got online. The internet, and apps in particular, can provide us with lots of valid sources of information. They can help answer questions concerning every part of pregnancy, from trying to conceive to postpartum, and parenting techniques.
During my pregnancy, there were a few apps that exceptionally helpful. If you’re anything like me, you don’t have a ton of money to spend on phone apps (especially when you are preparing for a new baby).
