Great tool 5/5
I used this app for about two weeks to make sure I was keeping the right track. It kept saying practice contractions and it calmed me down
On the day of, it said to prepare and call the hospital. We did, so we were ready to go. Then, it prompted me to go to the hospital. I went to pee and what was left of my mucus plug came out. So I woke up my husband and got to the hospital. Three hours later, my baby was born. This app really helped me to come in at the right time and not freak out before hand
Contraction tracker 5/5
Love this app super easy to use & super handy
I was tracking my contractions and my husband and I were debating should we go. We are still so far apart you google everything and always find multiple answers. Then at the next contraction the app so cutely popped up with “get ready” you may want to head to the hospital and we laughed a little and decided to go ahead and go. We were as close to right on time as possible. I delivered 3 hrs later which was quick as far as arriving to ER and getting through triage and getting to the room where our guy was delivered!
I don’t want to pay to get features when it’s happening! Stupid 1/5
By Nobody now
Yes it’s stupid
Easy and straightforward 4/5
I downloaded this app about 30 minutes after I thought I was in labor and it was really helpful and simple to use. It was accurate in its suggestion to get ready and when to head to the hospital. The only annoying thing were the ads that popped up at inconvenient times, like that’s at all what you’re worried about when you’re in labor.. Still would suggest it and use it again!
A freaking godsend! 5/5
Downloaded this app based on a side recommendation from a friend. When my wife thought she was going into labor, we were fixated on this app and getting closer to the 5-1-1 mark.
Every call to the Dr starts with asking about those key metrics and calculating rolling averages on the fly in a stressful situation is not viable.
Easily worth the price for free, splurged for the 2$ for the ability to edit contraction results.
Very convenient 4/5
The screen doesn’t go off, when it’s pulled up, doesn’t have constant annoying advertisements like other contraction apps, I give 4 stars, because you can edit a contraction only if you buy full version, but when having contractions hit the button by accident a couple times. And this app also doesn’t record at what time when you were having the contractions, some other apps had that, so that would be nice to add, to be able to look back through the whole day at the time and intensity of the contractions.
Wonderful App 5/5
This App was so helpful during my labor to track contractions. Easy to use! My husband would start and stop when I’d tell him which allowed me to stay in the bathtub and focus on working through each contraction. We knew when we should be heading to the hospital based on the provided information.
Great tool 5/5
This app helped us to determine when it was the exact time to go to the hospital. Being first time parents we didn’t want to be early or late for delivery and the app helps take the guessing out of the equation. Love this app!!!
Super great 5/5
Very easy to use- even has prompts as to when to go to the hospital: honestly would’ve ended up giving birth at home if I wasn’t using this
Does its job 3/5
By Sarah Nicole Taylor
I wish there was a way to change the date of the contraction. I find myself forgetting I started a contraction and if I do this just before midnight and the contraction runs over into midnight accidentally, I can’t adjust it back to the time the contraction actually ended. It won’t let you change the day. I know I should just be staying in the app and ending the contraction when it actually stops for more accuracy but I’m forgetful.
Otherwise I like the app. It does its job. Just could use some improvements.
Paid for the full app, isn’t worth it. 1/5
The timing isn’t useful and the paid version lets you edit, but the “frequency” isn’t even comprehensible. I wouldn’t even bother with the free version.
It wanted me to pay to keep track of the time the contractions occurred to I would rather try something else. Unremarkable.
Must Load App 5/5
I used this app when I began having my contractions and it walked me through everything from taking a shower and from when to go to the hospital. I recommend this application to all you expecting mommy. I also took screen shots of my contractions as well as the notes that guided us to the hospital. I printed them up to add to my baby’s album.💙
Saved by the app! 5/5
I had no idea the app would tell me when it recommended heading to the hospital. Without it, we would have delivered at home. Life saver!
It works 5/5
I started having contractions at 9:45 I downloaded this app my contractions were 7 min apart it kept track of them until they were 3 minutes apart it kept telling me to get ready to go to the hospital so I took a bath and when I got out dried off my water popped at 5 am and a baby girl was born that same day ❤️
Easy to use under the circumstances 5/5
By Ron Norris
Tried one or two apps but decided on this one because it’s simple and easy to use. What sold me is that it’s easy on the eyes and not overwhelming
I used this app for the birth of my third child. I was sure we were done, I deleted the app and now the record is gone of when I was in labor😭 other than no cloud backup of some sort, this app is amazing!
Should have more options in free version 2/5
I think it’s kind of BS that they don’t allow you to do anything but time the contractions unless you pay. You can’t even edit it or anything. I’ll be using another app. I’d rather have a few ads and the full version than pay $1.99 to do anything at all.
Not impressed 1/5
I like the Daddy Up one a lot better. This one didn’t tell me the time I started so I couldn’t keep track of how long it had been. It kept telling me that the results were in inclusive.
Great Aesthetic but No Intensity Tracker? 3/5
By The Little Moore Family
This app is beautiful. By far the best contraction timer to look at. BUT there’s no way to track the intensity of the contractions which is a feature I really want. I’ve decided to switch to a less pretty app that allows me to track intensity as well as to see average length of contractions and average time between them. If this app had those things as well as the helpful info about labor stages, it would be a slam dunk.
Easy to use. Times well. But there is no explanation anywhere in the app for the difference between”interval” and “frequency.”
Not too much help 1/5
I paid the $1.99 plus tax for this app...I’ve been logging contractions and have yet to see where it explains to wait or go etc... I’ve easily logged way past the 4 they ask for! Waste of my money.
Good for tracking, but overall failed me. 2/5
Using this app was a great improvement over notepad, but a few faults made things a little worse overall. I had contractions 2-4 minutes apart and 30-45 seconds long. I thought I had to listen to nurse and have them go up to 5 min apart consistently and last longer or else the hospital would send me home (she didn’t say 5 min or less) and I’d have to suffer multiple trips on the road. NOPE. I was in labor the whole time, almost had baby on couch and had to give birth without my epidural after suffering for over 16 hrs of continuous contractions. This app kept summing up my contractions as “you have time to take a shower, eat something small, gather docs” and “error irregular results” every time. Never head to hospital to get checked!
Same with the human nurse though, I was unable to get ahold of a nurse after calling and waiting in the span of 3 hrs, had to beg for one to ask about these tear-streaming contractions! (as I’m totally clueless..thinking I’m just weak & dramatic as the first nurse had me believe it’s just irregular contractions that could last hours, or days, or stop...NOPE)
The “Time” displayed in tiny, gray font is insanely poor user interface design. It was invisible to me during my pain as I couldn’t think or hardly function, but I kept wishing so badly the app showed the Time of contractions without having to purchase and only afterwards I realized it was there the whole time.
Another thing with the advertisement to purchase full version popping up on accident constantly kept preventing me from hitting the start button in time. Free version should contain a delete single contraction button for this reason bc it messed up my count and analyzation with this pop up constantly and I couldn’t delete without wiping this whole log. Felt unfair and all this made the full app Not worth the money, so I wouldn’t purchase even out of desperation in my pain.
**just noticed I must have purchased this on accident at some point during pain as it’s over now and all the buttons/taps work with no pop-up to purchase..ughhhh what luck now that I no longer need it. Thanks for the tracker though. The button made it easier than repeating the time on the clock in my head over and over until I can breathe & write it down so I guess it was worth looking back. Gotta delete ya now though bc the sight of app reminds me of the hours of pure agony and torture.
Too simple 2/5
The contraction counter doesn’t let you know the date/time of the contraction. Just the length and space between contractions. I’m sure the full version ($2) has some additional features, but there are probably other free options that would suit your needs better. I picked this app because i liked the colors but I’ll probably choose a different one to actually track Labor.
Gracias por crear algo tan importante 5/5
👶🏻es la mejor pagina que he encontrado en español para contar contracciones bien hecho 👏🏻
Great app 5/5
This a great app!!! I’m at the hospital right now with my wife... waiting for our first baby to born anytime from now. The worked great and told us the right moment to come to the hospital and call our doctor!
Really helpful 5/5
At the begging I had been getting the “get ready “ screen but I was just ignoring it since I had gone the day before to my appointment & I was 0 dilate & wanted me to deliver in 1 1/2 week since baby didn’t seemed to be dropped either. I thought the app was a scam or something & didn’t really wanted to go to the hospital and get send back but my bf ended up taking me & I was 2 dilated & in 4 hours I was 8cm and I had her in 2 hours . I recommend this app
Best App ever!! 5/5
This app was amazing literally didn’t know when I should go to the hospital, one day I thought I should used the app and they didn’t suggest it, the day I went into labor I used the app and it told me to start heading the the hospital as I was keeping track of my contractions sure enough I get to the hospital and they actually keep me as it is time for me to give birth to my baby boy !!

The perfect app for tracking contractions 5/5
I delivered my baby yesterday. If it weren’t for this app, I don’t think I would’ve realized I needed to start heading to the hospital!
All you do is tap when your contractions start then press stop when they stop.
Easy. I also love that it gives you recommendations depending on how often you are contracting.
Best tool for any expecting mother!
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.
