Once you become pregnant, your life gets taken over with baby things. From your diet and nutrition to the exercises you do and how you spend your weekends, everything changes pretty quickly.

Whilst pregnancy is a wonderful time, it’s also fraught with worries – wondering what’s going on inside can quickly become all-consuming. Luckily modern technology means that expectant mums can not only track a huge array of goings on with baby but can also make sense of some of the symptoms she may be feeling during this incredible time!

Over recent years there has been an onslaught of innovative pregnancy apps promising personalised, unique content that will help you to get to know your body better during the next nine months – but which is the best?

Today, we’re going to be taking a look at six of the best pregnancy apps out there that can contribute something truly special to your pregnancy.

1.Pregnancy +

Pregnancy + has been around for a while now and has been voted as the number 1 pregnancy support app on the market – so it had to make our list! If you’re looking for an app that looks great and has a simple, easy to use function – then Pregnancy + is definitely worth downloading.

You can get access to realistic digital images detailing how your baby will develop during every stage of the pregnancy, with a plethora of useful tools, including a baby kick counter for those later weeks, a place to track your weight gain and even a place to put important doctors’ appointments.

Perhaps the most beneficial feature of the Pregnancy + app, and what helps it to stand out from the competition, is its catalogue of useful articles, designed to support you throughout every stage of your pregnancy.


Sprout is perhaps a little less established compared to some of the other apps on today’s list, but for those seeking a more visual pregnancy app, there’s no better out there at the moment!

Sprout offers expectant parents a truly unique insight into what is going on from one day to the next with never before seen details and realistic, interactive imagery. This award-winning app includes all the useful tools and features we love to see in a pregnancy app, but with the unique addition of incredibly detailed images and videos.

If you love to stay organised, this app also comes with a number of helpful checklists which can help to keep you organised.


Preglife was developed in Sweden and has translated incredibly well to all other parts of the world, with an average rating of 4.9 stars on iOS and 4.8 stars on Android.

This is probably the most “basic” app when it comes to aesthetics, however it makes up for this with a distinct lack of pop-up ads, and a wealth of information about you and your baby during pregnancy.

Although many of the other pregnancy apps on the market encourage a community feel, Preglife is very personal and private, so if you’re less keen to socialise this could be the ideal option.

4.What to expect

Everyone who has ever been pregnant has likely heard of the What to Expect app, and for good reason too! This colourful, easy to follow app is jam-packed with information, features, videos and digestible bits of advice for expecting parents.

Track your baby’s development from one week to the next, read helpful articles and even get access to healthy recipes to help you along your way to a nutritious and healthy pregnancy!

One of the most popular aspects of this app is the community, as it will match you up with other mums who are around the same number of weeks pregnant as you. You can share stories, advice and even meet up for a cup of tea with people who truly understand what you’re feeling.

5.The Bump

Every one of the pregnancy apps in today’s list offers something valuable to the expectant mother, but many can blur together as one and the same. The Bump is that vibrant, stand-out app that offers bold, bright hues and focuses heavily on offering information in a visually pleasing way.

Equipped with the regular features and tools you’d want to see, and packed full of healthy, easy to follow recipes, The Bump puts you firmly back in control of your pregnancy cravings, helping you to make better food choices.

6.Hello Belly: Pregnancy Tracker

Pregnancy apps often provide useful, medically backed articles to provide insight and guidance throughout your pregnancy, but sometimes it can all be a bit overwhelming. Hello Belly: Pregnancy Tracker takes a more playful approach to pregnancy with cute cartoon illustrations which are accompanied by helpful bits of advice, go-to tips and lifestyle hacks for the pregnant woman!

Perhaps one of the best features of this app though, is the beautiful 3D artsy baby image that you can tilt with your screen – it’s truly worth getting the app for this aspect alone!

Whatever stage of pregnancy you’re at, you can feel confident that there is an app out there perfect for you – and these six are our top picks for the parent to be looking for useful, colourful advice at the touch of a button. Oh, and they’re all free! Whilst apps are a fantastic way of keeping up to date with what’s going on inside, nothing quite bits a real-life image of your little bundle of joy. If you’re looking for a more personalised experience, why not come to Hello Baby for a 2D, 3D or 4D scan in Manchester of your baby? Contact us today to book your appointment

    Honestly had the BEST experience at Hello Baby.
    We had a rocky start to our pregnancy so we have been to hello baby 3 times now just so we can feel reassured and one of which was for our gender scan. We have been made to feel welcome and
    … More comfortable every single time, but today has outdone the previous experiences by far. And they were already hard to beat.
    The lady who scanned my wife spent extra time with us, no rushing, evening helped get our baby moving around so we could see him better. She gave us a plenty time, and then even went the extra mile and gave us a tiny glimpse of him in 4D.
    We cannot recommend them enough. Friendly staff, great atmosphere and all round GREAT experience! Deffo worth going! 🥰🥰
  • Harriet Wall ★★★★★
    Had our gender scan today and took the kids so they could be part of it. We travelled quite far for the scan and was well worth it! Really welcoming staff and excellent service at the scan. Scan was really clear and we could clearly see … More he was a boy 💙💙 would definitely recommend.

    Loved our experience at Hello Baby 😃 been here twice ... once in 2018, and again in February 2021. I wanted the gender of my baby kept a surprise as we wanted a gender reveal cannon, and they did not disappoint or give anything away! Staff … More are very friendly and polite. Thank you so much again! Would recommend 5***
  • Merf.Wendy Price ★★★★★
    I came here for a private scan because I was not sure how far gone I was. I got a shock to realise I was already half way through pregnancy and I was having a boy. Came here again for a bonding scan and got some lovely photos. The staff … More were really friendly and I enjoyed the experience. Would definitely recommend xxx
  • Kayla H ★★★★★
    Lovely experience for our first scan! We went for an early reassurance scan and that’s exactly what we got. We turned up at the wrong time but they still fitted us in there and then no waiting around. Would recommend to others in the future … More

    Amazing Experience
    I came to Hello Baby with my daughter for an Early and Bonding Scan, unfortunately they was closed for the gender due to lockdown.
    We had the best experience on both occasions, the receptionist was lovely and friendly
    … More and Katie was fantastic and very professional with what she does.
    On my daughters 1st scan she was too early to detect a heart beat so Katie very kindly offered us to come back the following week for a re scan. It was emotional to hear Katie offering her congratulations the following week and we got the best pictures you can get at such a early date.
    The bonding scan, Katie tried her best and wasn’t going to give up as the baby was in the wrong position, we was told to go for a walk and for my daughter to drink a lucozade.
    Upon our return, the baby had moved position and Katie again got us some amazing images.
    Everybody we met at Hello Baby was warm, welcoming and friendly, nothing was to much trouble and wasn’t rushed.
    We was asked on each occasion if we was happy with the scan pictures before buying them.
    Would definitely recommend and wouldn’t go any where else.
    Thank you Katie and team 💕

    What can I say! Katie made our day magical from the moment we walked in. Her care and enthusiasm for our gender reveal was amazing.
