The charity Best Beginnings has developed an interactive app called Baby Buddy with input from midwives, doctors and health visitors, designed to support you during pregnancy and as a new parent in order to help you and your family give your baby the best possible start in life. There is a version for pregnancy and for after your baby is born. They would also like feedback on the app.
