The other day I was scrolling around on one of the big pregnancy sites and I starting wondering if there an app for expectant dads. I was pleasantly surprised to see that there are quite a few! Read on for the best pregnancy apps for dads in 2022.
Why do dads need an app? It’s fun for fathers-to-be to follow on with their partner’s pregnancy milestones, to see how baby is growing and to learn baby tips and tricks for the newborn stage.
Given that baby is not growing inside dad, an app specially designed for them can be a nice way for them to feel a part of the pregnancy and to feel included in the whirlwind that is pregnant life.
Getting your partner on board with an app is also great for you! They will learn lots about pregnancy and it can bring you closer together to share everything together.
