*** Most downloaded Contraction Timer app in the world! Number 1 in the UK, Australia, Canada, Italy and elsewhere! ***
This is the simplest-to-use contraction timer. The app will help to track your contractions and determine when it's time to go to the hospital.
If you plan on having a home birth, the app will tell you what stage of labor you are in at any given moment.
Keep track of your labor by tapping a single button at the start and at the end of each contraction. The Contraction Timer analyzes the duration and frequency of contractions and will notify you when it's time to go to the hospital.
Thousands of pregnant women around the world have become mothers using our app.
Always consult your doctor to orient yourself in terms of contraction frequency and duration.
This app is not a medical device and our recomendations are based on standard indicators. Your labor may occur differently. Therefore, do not rely exclusively on our app.
If the duration and frequency of contractions do not yet correspond to the necessary indicators but labor pains become unbearable, it is better to go to the hospital as soon as possible rather than give birth at home or on the way there. Trust what your body is telling you.

Ratings and Reviews
Got the job done
When I first started going into labor my husband was tracking my contractions with the stop watch on his phone.
"You know there are apps for that?" I said.
"This is working fine," he said.
Fast forward to an hour later when I was in active labor and the contractions were coming hard and fast. My husband got up to get me some water and handed me MY phone.
"Push this big button when your next contraction starts."
I look down and he had downloaded a contraction app! When I pointed this out he said that it was way too much to try to keep track of with a stop watch and notepad.
The app itself is very easy to use. You push the big button when a contraction starts and you push it again when it stops. Super easy for even a woman in active labor to do.
I didn't realize it, but apparently every few contractions it was telling my husband to take me to the hospital! When we finally went I only labored for about an hour before I was fully dilated and started to push, so the app seemed to be spot on.
It's nothing fancy, but it got the job done and in the chaos of labor we needed something super simple.
I like the actual timing of the contractions however, it would be more helpful to know what the level of intensity of the contractions are. Being able to "rate" the pain level of each contraction would be better because Braxton Hicks contractions can come on the regular but unfortunately not be a good indicator of actual labor. Also, according to most OBs/midwives, the rule to go to the hospital follows 5-1-1. Contractions that are 5 mins apart, 1 minute in duration and lasting for 1 hour. The app told me to head to he hospital when my contractions were ranging from 11 to 17 to 8 mins apart. It appears to only take into consideration if you've had 4 contractions total before suggesting to head in but not really considering the spacing aspect. Again, I do like the ability to see the time frame between multiple contractions but I feel there are features that would be more beneficial when actually determining if labor is real.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for your feedback! We have improved the algorithms in our application. We also use the 5-1-1 rule to analyze contractions.
Used this app a few days ago while I'm labor. I love the clean design and the large button tap for the start and stop of contractions. Very easy to use. The updates about when to pack or leave for the hospital were also an added bonus that I appreciated. The only thing I would have liked was for there to be some way to see what time the contraction actually happened. As I'm trying to think back to when I was actually in "active" labor, I'm realizing that information would have been helpful. That aside! Definitely get this app.
