WebMD Pregnancy App Review and a Fantastic Baby Giveaway(thermometers, swaddling blankets, and more)

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure to interview Dr. Hansa Bhargava who is a WebMD peditrician. If you are not familiar with WebMD, they are the go to source to find out everything and anything that is medically related. I have WebMD bookmarked and have been known to frequent their site whenever I have a medical question, for a quick answer.


WebMD now has a pregnancy app  for new moms out there looking for answers. After speaking to Dr. Bhargava over the phone, I became jealous that this app did not exist when I had Hayley or Zane. Dr. Bhargava is the overseeing peditrician of the app, and it will give a new mom or dad, complete information about pregnancy and have questions answered live on their site, as well as the app.01_pregsplash

The WedMD Baby App provides trustworthy, doctor-approved information personalized by a baby’s age and offers tips and videos from Bhargava. She was instrumental in its development and speaks on behalf of WebMD in media coverage of the app.

With extensive experience in the areas of health and wellness of infants, toddlers, and children, Bhargava came to WebMD from Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, affiliated with Emory University, where she practiced for seven years as a lead physician in urgent care. She continues to see patients there regularly.Screen Shot 2013-04-11 at 8.28.58 AM

Pregnancy apps that are currently available offer singular functionality, forcing expectant parents to switch between multiple apps in order to track and monitor health and wellness information. Each additional app consumes valuable memory, impacting device performance.  WebMD Pregnancy solves this issue by integrating physician-reviewed content and functionality into a singular app, including:

    • Full customization of app content and information to suit the individual needs of parents, including content for multiple births and for parents with pre-existing medical conditions

    • ‘Baby Bump’ slideshow to document weekly changes during pregnancy

  1. Katie S says

    I am not finding out the sex but when I found out, I was from the beginning wondering what the sex is…

  2. Kris Piatt says

    My first pregnancy was a miracle. I was told I would never have children due to a couple medical conditions. When I became pregnant after 9 years of trying, I constantly thought I was on the verge of a miscarriage because of cramping that I was having. So, my number one question was about those pains. What were they and was it normal? (Round ligament pains! Yup, completely normal!)

  3. Sharalee Bridges says

    I am trying to win this for my brother and sister in law who are expecting their first baby!!!! May main concern while pregnant with my 3 was….will I hurt myself or the baby working on my feet for a 40 hour work week and why I was gaining so much weight is I was so active. I always wondered if it was more than one kid in there…lol

  4. michele d says

    This has to be the coolest thing. I wish that they had this when I was pregnant with my daughter. Goodness I feel old :)

  5. Kimberly T says

    My questions are all in regards to my twin pregnancy, it’s hard to find good information on twins, especially in apps!

  6. says

    What an awesome app! I wish I had it when I was preggo with my kids too. It could have been such a lifesaver!

    My #1 pregnancy question was, “now WHEN can this constant, gut wrenching, debilitating nausea end??” lol. I had horrible morning sickness with all three kids. Not fun.

  7. Jerica says

    My number 1 question with this pregnancy was if I keep nursing my youngest, will he drink all of the colostrum for my new baby.

  8. sandra davis says

    i am trying to win this for my niece, who after trying to get pregnant for 7 yrs finally did so. my biggest question when i was pregnant was “what can i do for my morning sickness?”

  9. D SCHMIDT says

    My number one question was what is my chance of miscarriage. I also wondered how many ultrasounds I would have

  10. Caitlin Chapman says

    I am currently in pregnancy number two with baby boy number two! I always wanted to know how the lungs functioned in a fully aquatic location?! My baby is in a bubble of fluid and the lungs still practice breathing before birth? THAT’S AMAZING TO ME!!!

  11. Emi says

    #1 pregnancy question was when you found out you were expecting: When I first found out, I was very worried that the baby would survive since I kept bleeding in the first trimester. At the end of my second trimester, they told me that I was having twins and one was smaller than the other. When I started having more questions about that because I had read up on the topic, the doc started fudging numbers. Come on! I am a scientist, so I can totally recognize fudged numbers.

  12. joanna garcia says

    What were the items i was not allowed to eat and the stuff i was not allowed to take (medicine wise) and do

  13. Lisa H says

    My biggest pregnancy question was what I should avoid eating and drinking while pregnant and what medicines I was able to take

  14. Jill L says

    Trying to win this for a friend, but when I was pregnant, I wanted to know how soon before I would begin to show. I was just so excited to be able to show off my bump.

  15. Blessie Nelson says

    My concern was on whether to know the gender before hand and how to know what is safe for the baby in terms of skin care, cosmetics, foods, drinks – everything which we never get a second thought to – now I had to deal with all things!

  16. Amber S says

    For my first pregnancy I believe my main concerns and questions were what I could do to avoid miscarriage, I was so worried that I was going to do something to hurt the baby.

  17. Stacey B says

    My number one pregnancy question for my first was what to do differently to ensure the health and safety of my growing baby

  18. says

    I’m currently pregnant with twins, so most of my questions are regarding the differences in twin pregnancies vs. singleton pregnancies. Awesome giveaway!

  19. Fareena says

    Will this pregnancy be harder than my first two. After the gap of 10 years since my last and my advanced maternal age :)

  20. says

    I think my number one question was, “ahhh?! How do we afford a baby? And how do we take care of this sweet little person about to turn our lives upside down?!”

  21. Arthur Caudill says

    My step daughter and husband recently adopted a 3 week old baby girl, and I would like to win this for them.

  22. Laurie Emerson says

    My first question was how long it would be before I could have my first ultrasound to see if it was a boy or a girl?

  23. Carolyn K says

    I just found out I’m expecting and I still have tons of questions. But probably #1 was what is my due date?
