Redwood City, CA (PRWEB) September 15, 2010
Women now have access to vital pregnancy information and tracking tools with the introduction of the Pregnancy Companion™ iPhone application. Expectant mothers want information to help guide them, but often don’t have the immediate access to the medical knowledge they desire. Pregnancy Companion™ fills this void by delivering the expertise of two highly experienced and passionate obstetricians directly to the iPhone, providing women with information they want in the palm of their hand.
Created by Dr. Jan Rydfors (Adjunct Clinical Professor at Stanford University Medical Center and the co-author of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Infertility: Handbook for Clinicians, the most popular clinical handbook of Obstetrics in the USA) and Dr. Aron Schuftan (Boston Medical Center). Together, they have over 25 years of combined experience and more than 8,000 deliveries. They have put their years of experience as obstetricians and teachers into an innovative and user-friendly iPhone, iPod touch and iPad compatible app, which contains fun and important information for all expectant moms. They have a busy private practice specializing in high-risk obstetrics and infertility treatment in the heart of Silicon Valley, California.
Pregnancy is an exciting journey filled with hopes, excitement, questions, concerns and new experiences. Pregnancy Companion™ contains a wide range of information and tools to help mothers confidently track their health and pregnancy. Previously, expectant mothers needed to conduct lengthy Internet searches, often finding no single credible source. This stressful and time-consuming activity required women to weed through irrelevant data to find the right information.
Now, expectant mothers can use the Pregnancy Companion™ application to get quality information on their iPhone. The application is beautifully designed and organized in a user-friendly manner. Using Pregnancy Companion™, pregnant women and birth partners can become instantly informed on all topics relating to their pregnancy. In the future, this valuable information will also be available to expectant moms on Circle of Moms (circleofmoms.com), a leading online community and resource for moms around the world.
“We have put our passion and many years of experience as obstetricians and teachers into this very innovative and user-friendly iPhone application that has both important and fun information,” said Dr. Rydfors. “With Pregnancy Companion, we extend our knowledge and experience to millions of women around the world, so they can have a complete resource with them at all times during their pregnancy.”
