The NHS across North west London is today launching a new mum and baby app – personal guide for pregnancy, birth and beyond.
The app was developed by mums, midwives and doctors in North West London and charity CW+ to provide women with a single source of trusted NHS information for all their maternity needs.
From the start of pregnancy to early parenthood, this app will support women and their families with:
- Choice on where in North West London they would like to give birth and how they would like their birth to go.
- Access to essential information every step of the way from being pregnant, to giving birth and looking after a new baby.
- Personalised plans for their care during pregnancy, birth and beyond.
Leo Mead who lives in Ealing and is expecting her first baby in December said:
“I really like the app, the fact that all the information provided is from the NHS makes it feel very comforting. I never knew there was so much to know and this app helps to keep it all in one place. Being able to note my thoughts, questions and feelings also means it’s easier to remember things I want to discuss when I have appointments with my midwife.”
The app aims to improve women’s experiences of maternity care and ensures that the information they receive is consistent no matter where they choose to give birth in the local area.
This helpful new app is available for download on both Apple and Android just go to your app store and search ‘mum and baby’.
