Soon-to-be mothers are mothers too, and with pregnancy comes a whole bunch of stress and questions. Keleya is an app that not only provides pregnancy tracking, but also workouts as well as healthy recipes that moms-to-be can prepare.

Stress doesn’t stop once you give birth, with so many new experiences that can be overwhelming. New mothers might not know how to keep track of leaps and developmental milestones for their babies, so why not use an app that can keep track of all these? The Wonder Weeks is a paid app that provides information about mental leaps and development timelines for babies, as well as reminders of what kind of changes or behavior to expect as children go through the months.
Staying organized is difficult when everybody in the family has different schedules and needs. Miscommunication is definitely a big problem, especially when kids start having extra-curricular activities and such. Cozi is an organizer app available on mobile as well as the web that’s intended to help families stay organized and on top of schedules, groceries, chores and more.
You get a calendar feature that collates all the calendar events from members of the family in a single place for easy viewing, as well as a grocery list function that updates in real-time, so if kids want to add items to the list and you’re already at the store, you’ll be able to see if once it’s added. No more asking family members to list everything they need in WhatsApp!
4. Headspace: Meditation & Sleep
Sometimes, we just need to take a few minutes to ourselves to calm down and unwind after a long day, and for mothers, they definitely need that break from having to take care of the family. Headspace is a meditation app that guides people on how to meditate, manage stress and more.
For mothers who might be kept awake at night worrying, there are also sleep meditation courses in the app with relaxing sleep music, sleep casts and even wind-down exercises that are designed to help a person get ready for bed.
5. Video streaming apps
Alright, you might already have a subscription to one or more video streaming apps, but does your mom? Depending on what kind of shows or movies your mom likes, you might want to gift her a subscription to Apple TV+, Netflix, Disney+, Viu or even others.
With a wide variety of shows across each platform, you’ll definitely get into your mom’s good books by providing her with hundreds of hours of entertainment. These video streaming apps might not make your mom’s life easier, but they’ll definitely make your life easier by keeping your mom happy and entertained!
