As a busy mom I feel like I have a million things to do every day. Keeping track of my family’s health is just one of those things, but probably the most important one on my to-do list. I wanted to share a few resources that will help you manage your health and your family’s health.
Pregnancy & Baby Tracker from BabyCenter
This is a great resource for moms who are pregnant or have babies. I was on BabyCenter when my kids were younger and now they have an app so moms can use it on the go. The app will guide you through your pregnancy – week-by-week and day-by-day – with tips, insights, and fetal development videos timed for your exact stage of pregnancy. The app has a kick counter, contraction timer, birth plan checklist, and more. There are also thousands of medically reviewed articles to help you through your pregnancy journey and through your first year as a new parent.
Ever have that middle of the night medical question where you wonder if you should wait until the morning or call the doctor’s answering service? If you decide that you are desperate enough to call the answering service you then have to wait to hear back from the doctor, which could take hours. Luckily, there is LiveHealth Online, a mobile app and website that provides consumers with a convenient way to have live video visits with doctors for nonemergency health conditions.
According to a recent survey of the EmpowHER community, 71% of moms surveyed reported losing two or more hours of work/school each day they had to visit the doctor. With doctors available 24 hours a day, seven days a week on LiveHealth Online, moms won’t have this problem any more. The service is perfect for busy moms who can’t take time off work to go to the doctor or who find themselves needing a doctor’s opinion in the middle of the night.
When I was ill last fall I was looking for something to keep track of symptoms I was experiencing and I came across CareZone. This app became vital in helping me remember what medications I was on, what symptoms I had each day and when prescriptions needed to be refilled. I loved having all of my important medical information in one place along with a place to journal and keep notes and contact information. My “mommy brain” makes remembering all this information difficult so having it in an app to bring with to doctor appointments is fantastic.
I’d love to hear what websites and apps you use to manage your family’s health.
