What I like is that it shows all the great positions to get in depending on the stage of labor — like, squats, birth ball, hands & knees, etc. It’s like a doula in an app.
That’s probably because the app was written by a doula!
While this app may be fabulous (it has received 24 five-star ratings so far), there are a few things fancy technology can’t do. For example, it will take an in-person doula to massage you, apply a cool cloth to your forehead when you need it most, and to anticipate your wants and needs during labor.
Still, this app may offer some decent birth prep and tips for birth. We’re curious: has anyone out there downloaded iBirth, do you plan to use it, or have you used it? If so, we’d love to hear your thoughts!
