The app was developed by mums, midwives, doctors and allied specialists in North West London to provide women with a single source of trusted NHS information for all of their maternity needs. The app aims to improve women’s experiences of maternity care by ensuring material, advice and local information is consistent and accurate, no matter where they choose to give birth.

 The easy-to-use app will support women and their families with:

  • Understanding their choices for antenatal care, birth and beyond
  • accessing essential and evidence based information on pregnancy, birth and early parenthood, with links to trusted organisations and expert advice
  • personalised care plans to support with choices for antenatal wellbeing, birth preferences, after their baby’s birth and birth reflections
  • tracking appointments and having up to date contact information for their unit/services of choice.

The app will act as an invaluable resource for the entire maternity team, supporting information sharing and conversations with women in every setting.
