3. Best App for New Moms to Help Manage Mental Wellbeing

GC4W weekend reads: Mom Wellbeing

Becoming a mom for the first time is a minefield, and for many women it’s both mentally and emotionally taxing. That’s why a new app has launched with the aim of helping new moms improve their mental wellbeing by allowing them to track their mood during pregnancy and early parenthood. It also aims to help women recognise early signs of deteriorating mental wellbeing.

YourTime was developed by the University of South Australia and parent support group Village Foundation and responds to priorities in perinatal mental health (the period from the conception of a child through to the first year after birth). Recognizing the symptoms of maternal anxiety and depression can be tricky, but the new app aims to assist new parents to feel empowered to monitor their mental health, both during pregnancy and after birth.
