That glow? Sure, she’s beaming with pride — but we have a hunch the light from her smartphone has something to do with it, too. With so many digital resources for moms and moms-to-be these days, expectant mamas are just an app away from information and tools to make their lives easier. Click through our album to see our top ten picks.
IFTTT (If This Then That)
This app is so mind-blowing, it needs a little background first: The gist is that you create or choose from a set of “recipes” of cause and effect to streamline your digital life. For example, if someone tags me on Facebook, add that photo to my dropbox; or, if I get a voicemail, send me a text. Create an account and add pre-set recipes or, and here’s the fun part, customize it for your pregnancy and beyond: if I’m on the way to the hospital, text Mom and Dad. Set up a few recipes in advance for when your bundle of joy arrives to make life easier during those hectic first few weeks.
