Preggie App: Advice from other expectant mamas

Goodness knows nearly every woman goes through a stage of surprised disillusionment about pregnancy and childbirth when they experience it for themselves. Movie stereotypes have done nothing to prepare expectant parents for what these life-changing events are really like. There’s a heck of a lot that we come to expect about pregnancy that simply isn’t true, and even more things that are never talked about or mentioned by almost anyone that turn out to be the realities of those 9 months of your life. So when it comes to getting the skinny on all things pregnancy, what’s a mama to do? When I first found out I was pregnant, I downloaded just about every pregnancy app. I only found a handful that I actually liked and used more than once.




The Preggie app allows you to connect with your local community of mommies with posts, photos, and questions from mothers in your area! This app is a women-only community that provides a perfect environment to speak your mind, and be honest and real. Even a lot of books about pregnancy, labor, childbirth, the postpartum period, and parenting in general are outdated and contain a lot of misinformation. If you don’t have a ton of close friends you’re comfortable talking about sensitive topics with, or especially if you are the first in your group of friends to be starting a family, it can be extremely difficult to try to get the answers you need to questions you have about what you’re going through. Or even to find someone to lend an ear to let you vent about your frustrations. On the Preggie app you can voice your concerns, rant about what’s bothering you, or share your enthusiasm about wonderful moments, all in one place with other local expectant mommas!


Unlike websites that offer forums, chatrooms, or message boards, the Preggie app offers something unique. It’s a safe environment like no other, since they require you to upload a picture of yourself and share your real name (never shared in the app) to verify that you are who you say you are when signing up. This helps to ensure that each person using the Preggie app is a real expectant mama---just like you! The Preggie app is a priceless resource that helps you get real answers and support from real mommies, exactly when you need it. It’s an online community available to post your questions or share and exchange information 24/7. Connecting with other mommas in your area provides the perfect opportunity to discuss topics involving your location, including: how you’re dealing with the weather where you live, local issues, and find out about resources and events near you.


The Preggie app has been a great way for me to hear the experiences of other expectant mamas and get opinions from a source I can trust. Setting up an account takes only minutes, and you can immediately start interacting with other mommies in your area. Using the Preggie app is extremely easy, and convenient since it’s on my phone and at my fingertips whenever I need it. It’s been wonderful to be able to ask any question I have, posting it and getting answers right away. I’ve found myself turning to the Preggie app while I’m at home, or on the go. During my first pregnancy, I didn’t have a lot of information to go by for information aside from my regular OB appointments and a classic pregnancy book. It did little to address the day to day questions I had about changes in my body, whether or not there were other expectant mothers that were feeling the way that I was, or help me sift through the overwhelming amount of research I had to do for each and every baby product on our baby registry list. These are all topics I could’ve had answered back then if I had had a resource like the Preggie app to turn to. Connecting with other mamas going through stages of their pregnancy that I am about to go through has provided amazing insight, and being able to discuss what I’m going through with mamas at the same stage of pregnancy has been such an amazing way to connect with other local mommas. I absolutely love the Preggie app!
