Pregnancy apps are a fun way to track your pregnancy and stay organized during your journey to motherhood.
I just love the way pregnancy apps deliver tailored resources and content to your exact week of pregnancy!
Different apps offer different features, such as weekly to-do lists, symptom management tips, places to log your personal info (like weight gain and supplements), and even access to community forums with mamas in the same stage of pregnancy as you!
Beyond your all-in-one pregnancy apps, there’s also a ton of great apps out there for things like nutrition, fitness, contraction timing, and fun bump pictures!
So which ones are the best pregnancy apps? Read on and find the right one for you.

The 5 best pregnancy apps
Every mama should have a good, go-to pregnancy app on their phone! I actually had a few for tracking my pregnancy because I liked certain features from certain apps. It was also fun to get a variety of resources.
Most mamas love to read and devour as much content as they can during their pregnancies, and apps do SUCH a great job of curating content that’s tailored to where you’re at.
Here are my top picks for the best pregnancy apps to use during your pregnancy.
This is a great all-in-one style pregnancy app that gives you a ton of great info and resources for your exact week of pregnancy.
- Track baby’s growth and development
- Learn what’s up with mama
- Read suggested articles
- Get tips for prenatal appointments
- Weekly to-dos
- Connect with out other mamas due around the same time as you with their community forum!
This is another awesome all-in-one app that carries you through your whole journey from TTC through babyhood.

- Helpful tools like a kick counter and name finder
- Built-in contraction timer and so much more!

The Bump is another all-in-one app that is gaining popularity among pregnant mamas! I love how this app has a fun, modern feel.

- Get a daily feed of articles relevant to exactly where you’re at
- The app also provides curated pregnancy and baby products
- There is a built-in registry feature

This pregnancy app is a little different than the first two because it has a really cool pregnancy journal built in that you can actually download and print! It lets you add in belly photos and record pregnancy milestones, moments, and thoughts each week. There are over 350 entry ideas and prompts! Talk about an awesome keepsake.
Additionally, you’ll get tools like a weight tracker, kick counter and contraction timer, checklists to stay organized, and weekly info about your developing baby and changing body.
This app is also really different than some of the others – it’s like a dating app for moms! The Peanut App can help you find your bump buddy!
They have a pregnancy feature that can help you connect with other expecting moms in your area!
Okay, so this isn’t an app – but did you know I have a FREE weekly pregnancy email series? My pregnant mamas love it!
I bring it up, because it’s not all that different than what an app does each week. Here’s what you get when you sign up:
- Weekly content tailored to your EXACT week of pregnancy

- A “tip of the week” to keep you organized and prepared
- A featured IG post that relates to the weekly topic
- FREE Pregnancy Journal to document your pregnancy
- Complete Guide to Labor and Delivery PDF
Twins pregnancy app
Even though this app doesn’t have as many reviews as some others, it’s AWESOME for mamas having multiples. And actually, one of the only well-reviewed apps that even has a multiples option.
It gives tailored info for moms having twins for each week of pregnancy. You also get all the other benefits such as appointment trackers, symptom advice, questions for your provider and more!
If you’re having a twin pregnancy, this free app is a must! Use it in conjunction with a singleton app, this way you get a variety of weekly content related to pregnancy in general, but get also info related to the development of your babies!
Sadly, it’s only available for iOS right now.

Your go-to pregnancy exercise apps
Exercise and nutrition are so important during pregnancy! Prenatal fitness has so, so many benefits. It can lead to a shorter birth, increase your odds of natural birth (if you want one!), help with your mood and temperament, boost your energy, minimize discomfort, and a whole lot more.
A pregnancy exercise app can take the guesswork out of finding workouts that are safe for you based on where you’re at in your pregnancy. Here are a few of my favorites!
1. Juna App
Hands down my favorite pregnancy exercise app, and the one I used for my entire second pregnancy! This is a subscription-based app that gives you tailored workouts for your week of pregnancy, recipe and nutrition tips, and related content.
The app has content for every week of pregnancy and through the first few months of postpartum, too!
Use code LIESEL25 for 25% off a yearly membership. Head here to read more about the Juna App.
Pregnancy Yoga, Meditation + Education: this app features prenatal yoga classes, guided meditations, and info for pregnancy all taught by a certified midwife, yoga teacher, and childbirth educator.
I didn’t personally use this, but I’ve heard good things – especially if yoga is your jam!
This app seems really cool! It’s full of guided meditations tailored to where you’re at in your motherhood journey – from trying to conceive and IVF through each trimester and beyond.
The meditations can help you bond with baby, de-stress, and even sleep if pregnancy insomnia is plaguing you.
