The revolution of health tracking is getting closer to pregnancy with every new device or gadget that is designed to help expectant mothers measure health parameters about themselves or their babies. With my wife, we are looking forward to having kids as soon as possible and I won’t be able to resist the temptation to measure the baby’s health just like I have been measuring my own for over a decade.
Here are a few innovations and others that are not even available yet that might help others too.
Wearables during pregnancy
Pregsense (coming soon) provides information during the pregnancy, monitors the fetus’ health and sends the activity to the mother to a smartphone.
Ritmo Pregnancy provides expectant families with a simple way to safely and effectively deliver sounds.
Sound Beginnings‘ high quality speakers are designed to keep the volume to a level that is safe for baby.
Lullabelly is a prenatal music belt that can be used whether the expectant mother is on the go or just relaxing at home. It has a patented hands-free design and is easy to use and safe for the baby.
