Full Term – Labor Contraction Timer, Counter & Tracker
When you’re in the throes of labor and need to time your contractions, you need a quick and easy way to do it, and you need it. Now. This no-nonsense app lets you tap a button when a contraction starts, then tap again when it ends. The data is automated for you: the time, duration, and frequency of each contraction. A detailed log and a graph pop up, and space to type quick notes if necessary. Bring it with you to the hospital to speed up your Q&A time in triage, or email it to your OB — or yourself, for that moment months from now when you start to think it wasn’t that bad.
Free on iTunes.
