Hartford Hospital Helps Expecting, New and Veteran Moms Track Essential Information for Children

September 06, 2012

Launches free app that offers appointment and fertility calendars and tracks feedings and changings 

(Hartford, Conn.) – Recognizing the influx of information that moms are required to remember when planning for or caring for a child, Hartford Hospital announced the launch of its brand new MomMe app, which features tools every mom-to-be and current parent would want to use to keep track of anything from fertility calendars to feeding schedules to doctor appointments.

“We listened to our patients here at Hartford Hospital,” said Janice Cousino, Nursing Director for Women's Health and Ambulatory Care Services. “We heard that moms are always looking for an easier way to file away information. An app was the perfect fit. And what makes our app different is that it is totally free of charge and it combines the functionality of many other apps out there into one single, useful app.”

From fertility tracking to appointment books to feeding and changing documentation for a baby, the app is relevant to parents throughout a child's life cycle. It's helpful for those couples who haven't yet had a baby but are trying to get pregnant, women who are currently pregnant and even those who have a few children already.

“We deliver nearly 4,000 babies a year at Hartford Hospital,” said Cousino. “And every day we are looking for ways to make the lives of our new parents easier. Having a baby is a very exciting but often hectic time. We recognize that keeping track of everything once you have a child is difficult; we’re hoping this helps our new parents organize their appointments, track their new baby’s feedings, changing schedule and even help some women realize their dream of having a baby.”

The app is available today for free download on iTunes and Google play.
