Top 25 Pregnancy Android Apps 2011
Expectant parents have always been hungry for information, advice, and support. But these days, you don't have to lug around a stack of pregnancy books or call your doctor every five minutes. Instead load up your Android phone with these apps to turn it into a pregnancy journal, reference, and guidebook; community portal; contraction timer; and relaxation device - all in one. While your phone won't replace your doctor or your partner, it will certainly make everyone's lives easier (including yours, mom-to-be)! And if we missed an Android app you love, feel free to nominate it here! - Sonya Mukherjee

This app offers soothing, gentle melodies (some with a tempo similar to a woman’s resting heartbeat) as well as Mozart’s piano sonatas. The developer claims that the music will help “stimulate auditory-nerve functioning and enhance brain development of a fetus.” Does it work? There’s little evidence to support the theory, but many parents like the idea of giving it a try. The included songs have a soothing quality and are paired with pictures of baby feet, smiling new moms, and flowers. If nothing else, the music may help you relax and get to sleep.
