Mothers and their partners can seamlessly keep track of appointments, participate in virtual pregnancy classes and send direct messages to their Midwives, all from the app. Tools such as the contraction timer, kick counter, emotional health tracker and physical health tracker all feed data back to the Midwives in the hospital who can access this information in real time via the Eve portal and monitor the well-being of the mother.
