Count the Kicks App is Available on Apple Watch
The FREE Count the Kicks app is now available on Apple Watch. At your fingertips, the watch is a convenient new way to monitor your baby’s movements daily in the third trimester!
Expectant parents can track how long it takes their baby to get to 10 movements by tapping the footprint on their Apple Watch every time they feel a kick, jab, poke or roll during their daily kick counting session. The watch app times how long it takes a baby to get to 10 movements.
The Apple Watch app also includes the new strength feature. At the end of each kick counting session, app users will now be asked to rate the strength of their baby’s movements on a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 being “fluttery” and 5 being “fierce.” The data syncs with the user’s mobile app, making it easy to review kick counting data anytime. If normal ever changes, expectant parents should call their provider right away!
“We encourage all expectant parents to download the free Count the Kicks app today to bond with your baby in the third trimester. This proven method improves birth outcomes and saves lives — and we are excited to provide another tool to monitor the health of babies across the globe,” said Healthy Birth Day, Inc.
