I’m nearly 18 weeks pregnant and have been using Ovia every day for months. When I first found out I was pregnant I installed five different pregnancy apps. Ovia quickly became my favorite because the health tracking is so flexible and intuitive. I’ve been tracking my sleep, weight, and symptoms, and ignore the parts I’m not interested in tracking (e.g. mood, nutrition, exercise). I also like that there’s a nice-length article each week and some daily content that isn’t too overwhelming. On the cons, sometimes the app takes a while to load, or to load the health tracking page. The daily questions of if I’m taking my prenatal vitamin got REALLY annoying really quickly, so now I just click “yes” on whatever question pops up when I first open the app to get past it quickly in the morning before I’ve forgotten my sleep hours. I think this has given the app some false data. My biggest qualm though is that I can’t seem to export my tracking data. I can’t believe this isn’t an option! The app only lets you graph a few variables over time (weight, sleep—though not your total sleep if you log multiple stints of sleep a night—activity, steps, blood pressure, and nutrition) and I am just itching to make my own graphs of some of my symptoms over time. The fact that it looks like I’m going to have to pull the data out manually is a HUGE bummer. I’m hoping this becomes part of the app in the near future.
When I found out I was pregnant, I downloaded several pregnancy apps to see which one I liked best, and Ovia won out easily. I like the interface and the customization. I love the daily and weekly updates and little blurbs about what to expect from my body and what was happening with Baby and it’s development. The ability to track food, weight, symptoms, doctor’s appointments, just about everything is great! The way that articles and videos are broken down makes them easy to search and find what I want to read. And the medication and food safety look up has been amazing and saved me a lot of unnecessary phone calls to my midwife. This only reason this rating lost a star is because I felt like the high level of daily interaction became all but non-existent once I went over my due date. I’d get one targeted advertisement and maybe one blurb about “is the nursery ready?” or “only a few days left”. I missed the timely articles, and wish that instead of recycled blurbs there had been articles about induction or how common it is to go overdue. I know those sorts of things exist because I could look them up in the app, but I wish they had been automatically showing up on my feed as a means of reassurance. Overall a great app, but updating it a bit would be even better.
Best Pregnancy app by FAR
This app is amazing. I downloaded all of the free apps I could find involving pregnancy because I’m going to be a first time mom. Ovia does an amazing job of taking a little of every type of app (informational, social, health, etc.) and making it extremely easy to use. I also love that when posting in the community, everyone is anonymous. I think it makes asking for help and being honest about what you’re going through, so much easier. I also underestimated how much asking questions would help. It’s great that, as an inexperienced woman that doesn’t know what to expect in a pregnancy, I can ask other people if what I am experiencing is normal. You can also change the background to fit a theme, you can change what they compare the baby’s size to, and all sorts of customizations. Not only does this app track how I’m feeling, tell me more about my pregnancy and it’s symptoms, and help me connect with others, but it also takes a load of stress off of me. It’s a life saver.
Like it, but needs improvements on articles
This is one of my favorite pregnancy apps for tracking the baby’s progress. I like how you can also put in doctors appointments, track weight, BP, etc. The daily reminders for prenatal vitamins helps if you’re the sort of person who might forget. However there are rarely any articles to read other than the weekly updates. I go to Bump or even What to Expect (which I typically don’t like) apps to read through when I’m bored but want to do baby stuff— since they tend to have way more articles. I wish Ovia did too. My biggest complaint is how much this app emphasizes post partum depression. Don’t get me wrong— it’s a serious issue and it’s good that the app educates you about it. But honestly, more than half the updates towards the end of the pregnancy are about depression, or baby blues, or mental health issues... I’ve read all of the articles and tip prompts several times by this point, and I’m just sick of it. The app is honestly making me feel like I’m guaranteed to have PPD no matter what, so I should be stressed about it every time I open the app for the last two months. I really wish they toned it down a bit, gave you the option to turn it off, or at least had some other sorts of articles to read (but they don’t ☹️).
Love it but....
I have really enjoyed this app a lot! I love seeing different things that my baby is the size of each week. The last 2-3 months though have been very frustrating!! Every single time I first try to open the app, the loading page appears for a good 30-40 seconds and then the app just closes itself. Usually trying a second time works just fine, but now there have been a couple days over the past week where the app will just keep closing itself no matter how many times i try! First of all the loading page lasts way too long... second of all why should i have this app taking up space on my phone if it is just going to choose not to work whenever it feels like it! One of the couple days i had just mentioned, i was at the store and wanted to use the food safety lookup...in Heinz sight i should have just used safari because i knew even if it was working like usual (second try access success) that would still be a full minute or more of waiting for it to just load!!! Safari takes less than a quarter of that time! Please fix this problem as i still love everything else about this app!
This is THE app to use!
I downloaded another popular app when I became pregnant and quickly got burned out on it - it was all advertisements and fashion advice. I downloaded Ovia and WOW am I glad I was still in the 1st trimester when I found it. The interface is user friendly, the content is truly about my health and the health of my baby, not about what other people think or what I should be wearing. I love being encouraged to log my food and vitamins, and have truly been eating more intentional foods since starting it. It’s encouraging, informative, and my husband even got to subscribe to the daily emails! It helps him feel involved and he has been following the recommendations for nutrition by going to the grocery store for me without me even having to ask- the app is telling him what we need! Love this app! The only function I wish it had was an option for a more detailed food log, and the ability to list more specific high-risk categories that aren’t preloaded. I’m high risk with a connective tissue and joint hyper mobility disorder but there’s currently no option to record it as it’s uncommon.
Really enjoy this app but...
This is a great pregnancy app to use and track things along your long 9 months. It has great features and is very easy and intuitive to use. I enjoy most of the articles that come across the feed. My favorite feature is tracking the baby’s size and growth, especially with the fun size comparisons. However, there are a few downsides. Despite having entered my special conditions in that page, the app always asks me if I’ve reported said condition to my doctor when I track it. On multiple occasions this has happened. Second, after February, the app stopped showing the icons in the calendar for the days I logged data. The bars for each day and plus sign for doctors appointments don’t show up anymore, even after numerous updates. It’s a little frustrating because I cannot see what days I tracked already or what days my appointments are. Other than those issues, I’m enjoying the app. I cannot find another way to report the issues I’ve been having to Ovia, so hopefully seeing this review will suffice.
So informational while keeping it fun and visual
From the moment I found out I was pregnant up until this very moment with my son curled on my chest, I have found myself oh-so many times reading the updated and offered articles. The information readily available is pretty accurate down to the examples given and solution offerings. It was nice to see week by week what to expect and how to handle and now as he grows there’s new facts provided that reassure a new mom he’s on track (actually ahead of) but to know there’s others experiencing the same if not similar and learning and growing with their child as well. Without either of my parents to confide in, I depended on this app with any question or possible concern throughout my now; 10 month journey. Thank you kindly for this wondrous resource. Pray others find it and are able to enjoy as much!!! Definitely a 5 star and highly recommended app. (Which I have referred every expecting parent in my life)
So helpful, but so slow...
I’ve used multiple pregnancy apps for tracking my pregnancy and Ovia is my favorite! It’s the only one I use now. The information and tools it provides for you is so helpful, and I like the option it gives you to pick a theme for your baby’s size comparison (I chose animals, and my baby is a platypus this week - so cute!). The community of mothers on here also seems to be a bit kinder than what I’ve witnessed on other apps, more willing to be helpful and supportive and keep judgements to themselves. Even if someone expresses a difference of opinion from the current thread, they’re just nicer about it than other message boards I’ve seen. My ONLY issue with the app is that it’s difficult to actually get into. Each time I open it the loading screen is up for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Sometimes it’ll close me out of the app before loading. Sometimes it’ll load my dashboard or the message board but it’ll be frozen so I can’t actually click on or scroll through anything. It’s a great informational tool, but it can be kinda buggy.
I love the Ovia apps; I started off with Ovia fertility, and, well, a month later I was pregnant! So I switched to Ovia pregnancy and love this one as well! I'm giving it 4 stars though, just because I think there's room for improvement in the community aspect. For asking questions, I understand the anonymity aspect, but moms-to-be also like to connect with others, so being able to create a public profile/username and having a community where you could connect would be a great addition. As it is, some users try to connect via the questions, but that doesn't really work... Plus honestly, not everyone knows how to ask a question. That seems silly to say I'm sure, but all my thesis classes from college are coming back to me, so when they don't give the appropriate options for answers (like forgetting a "doesn't apply" when asking a yes/no question, for example) I'm like ugh! But anyways, apart from that aspect it's great; I look forward to checking the daily update each day and I love the different themes for size comparisons - Parisian bakery for me! (Because our honeymoon was in Paris and I'm a definite Francophile.) Besides, not everyone wants to compare their baby to fruits and veggies. =) At the start of a new week in my pregnancy my husband and I look together to see the new comparison, how much her hand grew, and read the updates! It added to the anticipation of her arrival. The only pregnancy app I use.
So in love with this app
Since I have been pregnant with my little one this app has helped me out a lot. It is so informative that I feel like with each week as my baby grows I learn something each and everyday about my little one and it’s development. As a new mom to be I feel like this app gives me a piece of mind about everything as far as development of baby, the symptoms that I might experience that I might experience throughout each stage, sending me reminders for my doctor’s appointments. The articles they have for diet, exercise, recipes, and other useful things on the app. This is the only pregnancy app I’ve ever had and I must say I’m glad that I did it right the first time, this app is amazing. I recommend this app to everyone that’s pregnant, you will not be disappointed and you will be well educated just like I am now!!! This app definitely has me looking forward to meeting my little one.
It’s a great app but ...
Don’t get me wrong, this is one of my favorite pregnancy apps out there! I use it a lot to keep track of my baby’s growth, my upcoming doctor appointments, and so much more!! That being said, let me explain why I gave this app 3/5 stars ... THE COMMUNITY CAN BE TOTALLY TOXIC!! Being a new mommy-to-be, I do admit, I can ask a lot of questions about simple things that every already mommy will know. But not me! I barely know all the right things and the wrong things to do! And having almost every comment on my questions being another soon-to-be mother/already a mother belittle me?? It’s not okay!! I really wish there was a way to block someone or multiple people from commenting on my questions. It really tears me down to hear by multiple other people how stupid you are when all you’re trying to do is ask a simple question??? I don’t understand. Please do something about this developers. Other than that, the app is great. And don’t get me wrong, there really can be some great, polite and helpful people on this app!! Just a few rotten apples... thank you!!
Great App but Update Left Something to be Desired
I have really enjoyed using this app for my first pregnancy! I like the week by week articles, the fun themes, and the tools like the symptom checker and food/medication safety. However, there are a couple things I would improve. Since the last app update, it's harder to look up and find medications to record. In the previous version, it would keep your recently used meds (like prenatal vitamins) up at the top so you could easily find them. Now I have to search prenatal vitamins every time which is frustrating. Also, the kick counter was moved off the front data screen and moved into the more tab, which doesn't seem to fit for me. That is something I use everyday and data that I would like to be able to chart out (it's a higher priority for me than the activity tracker). Overall, the app is great and I do recommend it to my friends. Just a couple things that I would change to improve ease of use.
Found this app via my employer. Really great app. It tracks food, weight, symptoms and many other things. App has many articles that are informative and educational. I love how I can track the babies weekly and gives you information about the baby on a day to day basis. Overall a great app. I would highly recommend. I gave it three stars because even though my settings were set for multiples the app followed a single birth pregnancy. It really doesn’t cater to twins. It would of been cool if my home page was automatically set with multiples pictures with two sets of hands and feet. I would of enjoyed opening the app and seeing two babies next to each other with an idea of how big they are at the current week. Adding my babies names to the app was VERY disappointing because it only allowed me to put it one name. It also doesn’t list all of the complications in pregnancy nor can you add it. It is a bit annoying. Same goes for medications. Other than that app is great. I would highly recommend.
This is my first baby so I figured an app would help keep me sane. I went through 3 or 4 before I stumbled upon Ovia, and I didn’t have a single second thought when I started using this app. It’s easy, it’s sensible, you can control notifications, and you can put whatever information you have and you don’t have to worry if you don’t have the information it asks for because you can always skip it. This has helped me keep track of my baby’s growth and development much better than other apps. I tried a couple of the themes and finally settled on fruits and vegetables, but the other themes were just as cute. And I particularly love the mom/parent chat available. It’s very helpful for first time moms that have worries but don’t want to go to the doctor right away. It’s a wonderful app. I hope everyone else using or considering using it has as an experience as good as I have had.

App won't let me log into my account. I've lost all my pregnancy data. Can't even do a password reset cos I logged in using Facebook.
