For pregnant mommies, the number one thing continuously on the mind would be the state of the unborn child: whether it is OK, happy, distressed, etc. We would not be able to know this unless we have Superman’s x-ray vision … oh wait, that would not help either.
In the late trimester of the pregnancy, I had to go for an ultrasound once every two weeks. I was also given a piece of paper to keep track on the number of kicking produced by my unborn baby.
Well, truthfully, I only diligently recorded for the first few days. Seeing my ‘difficulty’, the hubby went to get me a fetal doppler. For me to hear our little one’s heartbeat. To make sure our little one is alive, well and happily swimming in mummy’s little tummy. If only he had bought it sooner. Anyway, there was only so much the fetal doppler and ultrasounds could do. It did not tell me when I was having contractions or that baby decided to greet the world earlier than expected.
Luckily, we live in a smart-technology age. Enter the Bloomlife Smart Pregnancy tracker. With this tracker, you can have a peace of mind as you go about your day. With Bloomlife, you can see real-time contractions. It even calculates the frequency, duration and time between contractions so you know what’s going on. No more wondering if it’s Braxton Hicks or … the real thing!
It is proven safe too as it does not transmit any energy into the body, making it safer than ultrasound and doppler. Bloomlife underwent extensive clinical validation against hospital based systems and has been proven to be accurate, reliable and safe. They have even published their work at the Society for Maternal Fetal Medicine.
Eric Dy, one of the two male founders of Bloomlife, touts the device as the first and only pregnancy wearable that allows women to measure pregnancy-specific parameters. It can currently only measure contractions and be used with an Android device, but a February update will expand to iPhones, Dy said. The idea of Bloomlife, Dy said, is to provide reassurance to pregnant women.
So, a digital pregnancy device that tracks contractions, baby’s movements, heart rate and position and even the mummy’s stress levels … sounds good, all mummies-to-be.
