12 of the Best Baby and the Best Pregnancy Apps of 2023

Looking for the best baby apps and best pregnancy apps for 2023? You’ve come to the right place!

When I became pregnant with my little guy, one of the first things I did was go out and buy a couple of pregnancy books. I was so excited to learn about my growing bub I wanted to absorb as much information as possible.

Opening a book and staying awake long enough to read a paragraph, however, proved quite difficult, especially during my first and third trimesters when my energy levels were at their lowest.

Thankfully, there were easy-to-use apps available to guide me and give me useful information about my little blueberry, his growth, my symptoms, images, and more with the simple touch of a button any time I needed information.

While even the best baby apps and the best pregnancy apps do not substitute for advice or visits to your healthcare professional, they can provide useful information and even a sense of community as you connect with other mums.

Here is a round-up of the best pregnancy apps and best baby apps available to Australian mums.
