A FREE smart phone or tablet app can help take away some of the worries pregnant women have.

They are encouraged to download the app to use it during and in between appointments. The app has lots of video content, making it accessible to those who don’t have English as a first language, as well as young parents. Baby Buddy also uses language that most people will be familiar with as well as providing a comprehensive glossary that explains any complex words and phrases.

The app is endorsed by organisations including the Department of Health and the Royal College of Midwives and can be downloaded on Google Play or the App Store. There is an online version.
