Convenience for future mothers
Smartphone application allows expectant mothers to monitor progress without visiting the doctor
A new smartphone application now allows expectant mothers to monitor the heartbeat and development of their child, as reported in the British media. Bellabeat Connected System allows a baby’s heartbeat to be monitored, alongside weight and movement. The programme is also set to question mothers on their ‘feelings’, to give advance warning of the possible onset of depression.
Improvements are planned, to allow mothers to monitor their own blood pressure, weight gain and blood sugar level.
