“Accurate, user-friendly information presented with warmth and sensitivity – just what every pregnant woman needs.”
M.Henning, Director, MotherNet America


Unlike most apps, BABY TO BE is NOT a chart, game, check list, or list of dry facts. BABY TO BE is a warm, engaging video that shows the amazing growth of the baby within you over 9 months, how your body changes, what you can do to minimize the discomforts, how to enjoy your pregnancy, and much, much more.

BABY TO BE is divided into 10 chapters in which pregnant women are seen talking frankly about their emotions, their changing bodies, managing the discomforts, their changing relationship with husbands (and others), their fears, and how they go about enjoying pregnancy. There is a discussion of sex during pregnancy, a chapter for dads, and guidelines on when to call the doctor.


BABY TO BE is especially helpful for dads. Men openly talk about their feelings and what they can do to actively participate. BABY TO BE is a warm, engaging video that combines practical, day to day information with the emotional support that is so essential during pregnancy.

There are no ads and no corporate sponsorship.
