  • Just what A Mama needs when she’s in Labor! Feb 13, 2021

    By Moriel19
    I had previously downloaded a similar app but quickly realized that it wasn’t as efficient and convenient as I would have liked it to have been. This one though!!!! With the contraction timer app I was able to start and stop my contractions with one push of a button, the chart/log between contractions and how long the contractions lasted was very easy to read and comprehend. Needless to say, I started consistently tracking my contractions around 8pm on Feb6, and by 6 am Feb7, I headed to the hospital because they were about 5-7 mins apart. When I arrived at the hospital (& approx 30 mins later when they performed their cervical exam to see how far I had dilated , I was already 6cm) I share that to say that the app helped me decide when it was “really” time to head to the hospital as opposed to having false alarm of labor and being sent home! Download the app!!!! Thank me later!

    Please make the grey bar, where the increments between contractions is, bigger. It's hard to read the time from far away, and that is important when tracking how far apart the contractions occur. Also please add ability to set custom alerts. It would be nice to have a pop up when contraction length and time apart meet a certain criteria, like the 5-1-1 rule, for example. I appreciate how fast the app loads to the tracker dashboard screen. Other apps load slowly in the heat of the moment.

  • I don’t want to delete the app Jun 6, 2020

    I had a sweep done the day before my due date because I was still 1cm dilated. My contractions started the day of my due date but very inconsistent and hard to keep track of while I am writing it down in my notepad or my husband is texting it to me. I downloaded this app and my husband ended up downloading it as well because it is super easy to use. No guess work. Very straightforward app! I used it while having contractions on the way to the hospital (they were painful) because that is how easy it is. You just push a “start” button and then “stop” and do your part in breathing through the contractions lol. I do not want to delete the app because I have an attachment to it due it is being memories tied to my first child. Maybe I’ll take screenshots and put them in her baby book.... but till now I’ll just open it randomly and reminisce 😂

    My husband and I used this to track my contractions. We were both very pleased! I appreciated how simple it was so I could quickly tap start when I needed to focus on myself! I love how easy it is to edit an entry, which is great if you’re late grabbing your phone. When my contractions were 6 minutes apart I put on my Apple Watch so I could start the timer whenever needed (as my husband packed the car). He monitored the average time on the phone to decide when to head to the hospital.

    The app doesn't stop when you don't want to count the contractions. Normally one requires to count only for an hour or two. But this times doesn't stop ever... So when you are not counting or just sleeping it counts that time as interval between two contractions.🙄

  • Add to lock screen or Control Center Apr 28, 2018

    By DueInJune2018
    I am a super new user for this app and I like the simplicity of the app design and layout. It would be awesome to have this app at the ready on either at the Lock Screen or Control Center pull down menu for iPhone! I understand that with the watch on it’s a quicker route to access but it’s something that I don’t have on 24/7 or at the ready like my iPhone device. Just a suggestion 😊! I had a contraction this morning and used another app to track it as I had not yet found this app and I realized that I had to go through so many steps to get to the tracker and that’s why I downloaded this app. I like that I can take the information from the other app and add it to this app for accurate tracking in the future.

    Easy to use. Gives helpful info
  • Easy to use with ability to make corrections, recommend! Feb 19, 2021

    By ELLBOS
    Super easy to use. Like that you just need to tap on screen to log start/end of contraction and that you can toggle to see the averages for past 5, 10, 20 contractions. Also really found it useful to be able to correct your logged entries, by continuing with a click of button if you stopped log prematurely, or simply adjusting start time and duration if you made a mistake or forgot to log end of contraction. The graphs of contractions are worthless, though, didn’t need them.

    Worked great for the final stage of my pregnancy. The only thing is that it would be more useful if you could edit the contractions a bit. I didn't always time them exactly due to the pain. But otherwise, very helpful 🙂
  • Easy and straightforward Oct 4, 2019

    By Sarah8616
    This app is very simple and easy to use—accomplishes just what you need it to. My only problem with it is that when it times how far apart the contractions are, it seems to record from the beginning of one contraction to the end of the next one, rather than beginning to beginning like you are supposed to. I know this because before you press start it shows a timer that is tracking the time since the last contraction. For instance, the timer might read 6 minutes when you press start, but when it is over the time recorded is 7 minutes. It is supposed to go by when the contraction started, not ended. If it has been 6 minutes since the previous contraction when you press start, that’s the time that should be recorded.

  • Easy to use. Could use some improvements. Dec 6, 2018

    By WeatherService
    This app is very simple and easy to use. When one is having a contraction this is much appreciated. Where I think it falls short is in access and the graphs. Having the app be available on the lock screen would certainly bring it up a level. Sometimes unlocking ones phone doesn’t happen upon first attempt. Add in having a contraction and frustration ensues. By the time you get to the app the contraction is half over (I realize you can manually adjust the time of the contraction, but hear me out) Next, the graphs. I would recommend seeking a consultant for help on how best to lay out the data. Currently it doesn’t make sense. The time shouldn’t be on the y-axis.

  • Will tell you what you need to know! Sep 21, 2019

    By active labor
    This app was useful for timing my contractions and determining when I needed to go to the hospital. You must know what to look for as you deem yourself ready or not. It would be helpful if the app provided recommendations for when you should pay attention to your contractions and go in to hospital (when they could be a sign of active labor). Also, extremely annoying to be asked to rate the app every few minutes when I was dealing with tracking my contractions. The worst time to rate an app!
