SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 11, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Parenthood begins long before a baby is born. That's why it's important for moms-to-be to take care of themselves and their new addition throughout those whirlwind nine months. To help answer the many questions that come with this journey, Baptist Health and Wolfson Children's Hospital – in collaboration with Wildflower Health – has developed the MyFamily mobile app to help moms and dads from early pregnancy until long after baby is born.
App features engage and inform users throughout their experience, and include:
- A "Find a Provider" tool with Baptist Health's directory of more than 1,200 OB, pediatric and primary care physicians
- Reminders for maternity tours and childbirth classes
- Storage of all of your self-entered doctor's appointments and questions in a feature called the "Q-List"
- Daily pregnancy tips, weekly pregnancy videos and to-dos by trimester
- Feeding, diaper and growth trackers for newborns to toddlers
- Tips for new parents on sleep, swaddling and traveling, including postpartum depression articles with connections to support groups and a 24/7 helpline
- Profiles for every family member from ages 0 to 99, along with vaccination and weight trackers
- Personalized daily newsfeed specific to users' interests and needs
"Baptist Health and Wolfson Children's Hospital want to help families be as healthy as possible throughout their lives," said Brett McClung, president and CEO of Baptist Health. "The MyFamily app is an extension of our expertise and care, helping us to fit into the daily lives of parents as they take care of themselves and their children at every stage."
CC Brooks, vice president of Patient Care Services for Baptist Medical Center Jacksonville and Wolfson Children's Hospital, said, "We are so proud to offer the MyFamily app so we can continue to provide support long after childbirth. As a mom and a former labor and delivery nurse, I know how important it is for parents to have access to the reliable information they need as their families grow and needs change. This new app helps by offering health trackers for kids as they mature and the ability to include a health profile for every family member."
The MyFamily app can be downloaded in both the Apple App Store and Google Play Store by following the links, searching "MyFamily Baptist" in your app store or texting HEALTH to 904.441.5204.
"It's clear that consumers and health systems like Baptist Health understand the growing urgency for effective digital health solutions that focus on family needs, which include pregnancy, parenting and general wellness," Wildflower Health CEO & Founder Leah Sparks said.
