Perfect for what we needed! 5/5
By Angsty Aggie
My wife had been having Braxton-Hicks contractions for a week so when the real ones came I needed a timer right then! This app was perfect for what I needed. No we’re just at the hospital waiting for the little tyke to come!
My labor and delivery 5/5
I should have listened to the app when it said go to the hospital, we had our baby girl in my husbands Kia right outside the ER. I am thankful for this app.
Needs more options 2/5
It would be nice to know what time my last contraction started. It would also be nice to have a list of contacts on this app for family and friends to have my husband notify. Have the option to post when your water breaks and losing mucus plug would be nice too.
Seriously this app saved me from delivering my second son in the car! I thought I had time yet, based off my first delivery, when it told me to go to the hospital I was going to wait. My partner insisted that if the app said to go we are going and it's a good thing too because we were at the hospital less than an hour and my son was born! Simple and easy to use and understand, which is everything you want going into labor! A++++
Minimum viable product 4/5
Best UI out there - very simple & straightforward. I really like this one & am using it over the other two I downloaded. That said; is is definitely bare bones
3 basic missing features: if I hit the button by accident, then delete the accidental contraction, it should fix the "duration" time -- i.e., if I have a contraction at 10:10, bump the button accidentally at 10:05, then have another contraction at 10:10, then delete the middle one... the duration between the two "real" contractions should be 10 minutes, not 5.
I should be able to update the length of a contraction.
And I should be able to rate "strength"
... those seem the major missing features to me, but overall the app is usable, has a nice clean UI, and isn't annoying.
Definitely worth a try, especially if you just want the basics :)
Got the job done 5/5
When I first started going into labor my husband was tracking my contractions with the stop watch on his phone.
"You know there are apps for that?" I said.
"This is working fine," he said.
Fast forward to an hour later when I was in active labor and the contractions were coming hard and fast. My husband got up to get me some water and handed me MY phone.
"Push this big button when your next contraction starts."
I look down and he had downloaded a contraction app! When I pointed this out he said that it was way too much to try to keep track of with a stop watch and notepad.
The app itself is very easy to use. You push the big button when a contraction starts and you push it again when it stops. Super easy for even a woman in active labor to do.
I didn't realize it, but apparently every few contractions it was telling my husband to take me to the hospital! When we finally went I only labored for about an hour before I was fully dilated and started to push, so the app seemed to be spot on.
It's nothing fancy, but it got the job done and in the chaos of labor we needed something super simple.
Worked great for me 5/5
By Stevi Loren
I had my child on August 11th. It told me when to go to the hospital. Although I waited until it told me about 5xs it worked great
Great APP worth downloading 5/5
This app made me take my booty to the hospital it's awesome I've strongly recommend it to friends !
When it tells you to go to the hospital please don't be a hard head like myself I ended up going in after the 3rd warning and once I got there I was 8 cm dilated it was baby time 💓
Basic, Not Helpful 2/5
This is a very basic app that does less than your phone's notepad and timer. I would rather use my notepad and timer than use this app.
There is also no way to edit contractions to add one when you didn't get to the button fast enough. The function of this app is overly limited.
It is an easy-to-use app, but perhaps that should be expected with something that doesn't have many useful functions.
MAN FRIENDLY! 5/5
Guy friendly. Start | Stop buttons and for $0.99 you get email so you can send the Dr. or your Doula copies of the contractions so they have a copy. Easy, simple & friendly application.
Loved it! 5/5
I used this with my third child, my contractions were irregular in timing and strength; but the app alerted me when they were close enough to go to the hospital. I'm so glad to have gotten this app because I was unsure and waiting for contracts to be regular like my other labors. :)
Great app 4/5
when the contractions came it was simple enough to use, way cool super easy way to keep up with them and how long they lasted. Only thing I would've liked was knowing how long overall. I wasn't sure when a full hr of real contractions had passed. Or how long in total I had been having them
What does the pro version actually do?? 3/5
The timer is okay. Although it did tell me I was entering in my contractions wrong (like it knows) but I want to see an average so I thought if I paid the $.99 to upgrade I would get some more options. But literally nothing changed.
This app was very helpful. It helped give my sister-in-law something to focus on through her contractions on our way to the hospital. The clean interface and large buttons allowed for ease of use. Unlike other comments we found it comical when it told us to head to the hospital bc we were already en-route but it does appear to have been up-dated to follow the 5-1-1 rule of thumb. My sister-in-law was very disappointed to find that it wasn't available in the Google Playstore for her future use.
Great app 4/5
My daughter and I used this app through 30 hours of labor and it let us know when to call the labour ward and inform them about the frequency and duration of the surges. Couldn't have gone it naturally without it.
By Ti schumacher
I like the timer, but I was timing my contractions last night which were lasting 1 min each but they were not consistent. After 5 mins, 13 mins, 6 mins and then 8 mins - the app told me to get my bags ready and to get to the hospital... I was definitely not in labor and thank goodness I knew that. I would feel bad for a FTM who might be relying on the app to tell them when to go in because they would have been sent right back home.
Contraction app 4/5
I like this app! It's simple, easy to use.
Unnecessary advice 1/5
3 contractions in 15 minutes does not warrant a call for an ambulance or trip to the hospital. The counter is great the scare tactic is not.
Just Right 5/5
Did the job simply and precisely. Helped me to know when to call the midwife. We delivered a happy and healthy baby last night.
Why the unnecessary scare? 2/5
I started tracking my contractions this morning and after 3 contractions - 2 that were 5-6 minutes apart and one 9 minutes later - I got a message saying to call an ambulance??? Seriously?!? That's horribly unnecessary and will scare anyone who is new to labor. Don't try to instruct users on medical advice, just time the contractions and let our doctors do the instructing!
The Best 5/5
Loved how simple and efficient this app is. Specially at a time you can not think straight. Thank you so much.
Nice app, helped us 4/5
Nice app, helped us
Nice app 5/5
Nice app for timing. I didn't have to look at the clock and remember times and durations. Just simple press Start and Stop and the app does the rest for you.
Good for timing 4/5
By Worried Wife
This was a great app for keep track of the spacing of contractions and length of each contraction. The interface was attractive and easy to use and read under pressure. My labor came on hard and fast so it was great to be able to see really how quickly everything was happening. The app did tell me to go to the hospital earlier than my OB advised. I would just lose that feature. Each pregnancy and doctor's advice is different. I ignored the alerts and followed my OB's advice. I would defiantly use this app again and recommend it.
Very simple, very useful! 5/5
Helped me a lot. Just a great app!
Great simple app! 5/5
Thank you developers! Simple elegant app with one huge button for start and stop time of contraction. Exactly what i needed! 😌
Just ok 2/5
I like the actual timing of the contractions however, it would be more helpful to know what the level of intensity of the contractions are. Being able to "rate" the pain level of each contraction would be better because Braxton Hicks contractions can come on the regular but unfortunately not be a good indicator of actual labor. Also, according to most OBs/midwives, the rule to go to the hospital follows 5-1-1. Contractions that are 5 mins apart, 1 minute in duration and lasting for 1 hour. The app told me to head to he hospital when my contractions were ranging from 11 to 17 to 8 mins apart. It appears to only take into consideration if you've had 4 contractions total before suggesting to head in but not really considering the spacing aspect. Again, I do like the ability to see the time frame between multiple contractions but I feel there are features that would be more beneficial when actually determining if labor is real.
Great App! 4/5
Used this app a few days ago while I'm labor. I love the clean design and the large button tap for the start and stop of contractions. Very easy to use. The updates about when to pack or leave for the hospital were also an added bonus that I appreciated. The only thing I would have liked was for there to be some way to see what time the contraction actually happened. As I'm trying to think back to when I was actually in "active" labor, I'm realizing that information would have been helpful. That aside! Definitely get this app.
I love it 5/5
Super helpful app
This app told me to go to the hospital after timing my contractions for only 30 minutes. They were 7 minutes apart and less than a minute long. This is my fourth pregnancy and I know it's not time to go to the hospital yet!
So simple and effective! 4/5
Only downside is the warnings aren't setup with enough analytics. Very basic that way and the first time the 'call an ambulance' warning showed up I laughed. Other than that using this app for basic duration of contraction and time inbetween contractions was perfect.
THANK YOU! 5/5
Downloaded this app saturday around 9am, I was holding my babygirl the next morning! This app helped me know when it was actually time to go to the hospital! Would recommend
Worked perfect! 5/5
This app was great for me. Helped me time exactly what I needed to in order to know when it was time to head to the hospital. Worked awesome!
Loved it!!!! 5/5
By Patty Sanchez
It really works!!!!!
Good app 4/5
This app helped me tremendously. I started monitoring my contractions at 6am and was at the hospital by 9:30p. It gave me a good reading of how my contractions were getting closer and how long they were lasting. I recommend it.
The app does not time contractions correctly! Please do not use or reply on this app to determine when you go to the hospital!
It told me to go to the hospital. Sorry dude... Not everyone goes to the hospital. Delete.
Handy, but not accurate 3/5
Handy tool, but doesn't include the time the contraction takes in the "time between contractions." You need to calculate the length of time elapsed between the beginning of one contraction and the beginning of the next one.
Labor Contractions 5/5
By Joe Johnson 62
Great minimalist design and easy to use. Helped us know when to go to hospital!
Not times correctly 1/5
By Ryan Pflederer
I am really glad I tried it out before labor had started. I love the look and simplicity but the issue is : the creators don't know how contractions are actually timed. They refer to it as the "interval" instead of "frequency" which doesn't help.
You should be measuring the frequency from the start of the last contraction to the start of the next one. They time an "interval" of the end of the last contraction and the beginning of the next. That's not how they're timed.
This is my first baby but I doubt I will continue to have the patience to do the math to figure out if I need to go to the hospital.
You can't have a contraction timer that doesn't actually time contractions correctly. If they switch interval to frequency and make that frequency from the beginning of the last to the beginning of the next, the app would be good to go!
Awesome!!! Recommend to all expecting moms!!! 5/5
Takes the guess work out and tells you when to go to the hospital! So nice when you can't think through contractions! Love this, thank you!
