Introducing the new Mum and Baby App

The new NHS mum & baby app is launching on 2 November. It is free for mums-to-be in Hertfordshire and West Essex. The app will provide all the information they need for their pregnancy, birth, and beyond in a single source.

The aim of the app is to improve women’s experiences of maternity care and ensure this is consistent no matter where they choose to give birth in the local area.

From the start of pregnancy to early parenthood, this app will support women and their families with:

  • A choice on where to give birth; The Lister Hospital, Watford General Hospital, or The Princess Alexandra Hospital
  • Access to essential information for all stages of the maternity journey
  • Personalised plans for their care during pregnancy, birth, and beyond.

Not only does the app offers an easy-to-navigate screen. It also has multiple links and videos on topics including:

  • Emotional, physical wellbeing and mental health concerns,
  • advice for partners,
  • preparing for labour and your stay in the hospital,
  • post-delivery care, baby care basics, and much more

Personal preferences for each stage of the maternity journey can be documented, stored within the app for sharing with care providers, generating conversations that support collaborative and personalised care plans.

The app will be available in both iOS and Android formats; go to your app store (Apple Store or GooglePlay) to download the app.

We would encourage you to share this launch with anyone you know would benefit from this great app!
