Mobile pre-natal app babyscripts can reduce in-person pre-natal care visits
Date of Study: May 2, 2019
Source: George Washington University
Doctors discovered that using the mobile app, Babyscripts, led to a reduction in prenatal in-person visits. Research showed that both provider and patient satisfaction were also maintained.
In a Forbes article, entitled, “Babyscripts Aims To Revolutionize Prenatal Care In The U.S,“ you can learn more about the app.
Developed with the close collaboration of obstetricians at The George Washington University School of Medicine, Babyscripts is unique because it’s aimed at clinicians, not consumers.
A practice or clinic must agree to use the platform, and then low-risk patients interested in using it receive a “Mommy Kit” with an FDA-approved WiFi- and Bluetooth-enabled blood pressure cuff and weight scale. The app directs patients to take their blood pressure and weigh in regularly so that issues such as high blood pressure or too much weight gain can be identified earlier, not just when a woman shows up for her monthly prenatal appointment.

Pregnancy Scans, Testimonials and Information
What Our Patients Say
“This is my second visit to Merrion Fetal, I was very pleased on both occasions. Lovely quiet waiting room, appointment was on time. The 20-week scan is very detailed we enjoyed watching our baby on the large TV screen. We got some beautiful photos. The nurse was very pleasant and talked us through all the measurements and anatomy. I would highly recommend this scanning clinic.”
“I had the best experience at the Merrion Fetal Health clinic for my 20-week big scan. The staff were so friendly and so nice and the lovely lady who did my ultrasound scan was amazing. She was so thoroughgoing to absolutely everything and gave me such reassurance on how my baby was growing and developing. I would recommend any Mother to be to attend here if you are looking for a comfortable, reassuring and super pleasant experience.”
“Highly recommend! We had an early scan due to a little scare at the start of pregnancy and then another at 12 weeks to make sure all was good again. Helen who was scanning on both days was fantastic. We felt totally relaxed and un-rushed while she took her time finding the best angle of baby to get us the clearest pictures as keepsakes all while making sure everything was perfect with baby. She reassured us throughout and I can honestly say it was the best money we ever spent getting both scans done.
Please let Helen know we are 18 weeks now and flying along Highly recommend!
