The app reminds mothers of important pregnancy milestones, tailored health alerts and appointments. It provides a digital diary to track the stage of pregnancy and the baby’s growth.

Through the SPID digital identity access, expecting mothers subscribe to information service on prenatal care, vaccines and personalized health log.

This new application, developed by researchers and experts in the health services management to improve the lives of mothers, also allows the user to update the doctor’s examination throughout the weeks of pregnancy. The innovative additional feature about the application is the enhanced health care accessibility, affordability and practicality in Tuscany. A mobile device to enhance the practice of public health, providing information, facilitating consultation and high quality comprehensive care through a phone.
