Whether it’s your first pregnancy or your 20th, the third trimester is a time of watchful waiting and anticipation. Anything that can provide accurate and helpful information about pregnancy-specific parameters, especially contractions, is reassuring and empowering. Bloomlife‘s eponymous pregnancy wearable is now available to inform and help bring peace of mind to expecting moms.
Bloomlife has been in beta testing with hundreds of women and the subject of four clinical studies for nine months. The device is taped to the mom’s abdomen during the third trimester of pregnancy and data is transmitted to Android and iOS smartphone apps. Data visualized on the smartphone provides a real-time contraction view, automated contraction counting and timing, and contraction pattern and trend information so women can understand what’s happening, gain a sense of how their bodies are preparing for labor, and easily provide accurate information to their birth team.
