Pregnant women now have a powerful, accurate, and easy to use new tool, the Perfect Pregnancy and Postpartum Pounds App, to manage weight gain, have a healthier pregnancy and baby, and lower prenatal risk factors such as gestational diabetes, C-section, uterine growth restriction, and more. The new app by BeFit-Mom provides the means so that all women, no matter what her size, fitness level, or health status, can gain the optimal amount of weight for her unique set of circumstances.
“About 70% of pregnant women in the US do not meet current weight gain recommendations set by the IOM (Institute of Medicine),” explains creator Helene Byrne, “with 80% of these women gaining too much, and 20% gaining too little. Both of these shockingly common scenarios place the mother and her baby at increased health risks. Some of these pregnancy complications can be severe, and can have negative health impacts for years to come for both mom and baby.”
During Pregnancy the App:
- Accurately calculates prenatal metabolism and ideal daily calorie target.
- Assesses pre-pregnancy weight and BMI (body mass index) with gestation week, and over all rate of gain as pregnancy advances.
- Dynamically graphs weight gain by week so that women can spot trends, take action, and discuss any problems with their OBGYN.
- Conforms to IOM and ACOG (American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists) guidelines for prenatal weight gain.
- Combines proprietary algorithms with the metabolic formula that ACE (American Council on Exercise) considers the most accurate for women.
After Pregnancy the App:
- Accurately calculates postpartum metabolism and ideal daily calorie target.
- Assesses the rise and fall of breast milk production, over the course of one year, with BMI, current weight, and rate of loss, so that moms can safely lose any unwanted pounds while safeguarding milk supply.
- Dynamically graphs rate of loss to keep moms motivated as they approach their goals.
The Perfect Pregnancy and Postpartum Pounds App gives women the power to easily manage their prenatal weight gain, have a healthier pregnancy and baby, and bounce back quickly after delivery. $3.99 on iTunes and Google Play.
