Pre-natal WorkoutPrenatal Workout by Power20 is an app that provides specific sets of exercises for the different stages of pregnancy. The creators consulted prenatal yoga instructors to create all the workouts you will find in the app. There are different sets assigned to each trimester which you can follow depending on what trimester you\’re in. The app instructs you through all the steps, and each set is preceded by a stretching exercise that can be completed in 5 minutes. It has been praised because of the user-friendly interface as well as intelligent use of graphics and sound to keep you engaged and motivated. One area where this app has fallen short is that you can access only one exercise set in each trimester as long as you are using the free version. This may not give the user enough access to decide whether or not they like the app enough to purchase the full version. Another point of concern is that the workout is arranged in sets that are 20 minutes long. This can be too much physical exertion for mothers who were not engaged in long exercises before pregnancy. Download on iOS and Android (It looks like the app was available for Android but now even the link on their website is broken…?)
Pregnancy Workout AdvisorThis app is designed to be a comprehensive assistant to staying healthy throughout your pregnancy. It suggests the type of exercises that will be suitable for the phase of pregnancy that you are in. It also points out the variety of physical activities and tasks that you should avoid in each trimester of pregnancy. The Pregnancy Workout Advisor goes a step further by even explaining the different kinds of food that will be healthy for both mother and baby, as well as the items of food that should be avoided to ensure that your fitness and health are not compromised. This app can especially be appreciated for the detailed way in which it describes the food and activities you can indulge in. The app has however been limited in the visual descriptions that other apps have excelled in. Users have found that a lack of graphics and demonstration of exercises makes it less engaging. The other issue of concern is that the section that explains what food to eat and what to avoid, does not have enough variety and the user is restricted to too little options.

Oh Baby! Pregnancy exercisesOh Baby! Is one of the best pregnancy workout apps so far. All you have to do is enter your due date in the app, and it will assign specific exercises for every single week of your pregnancy. The first ten weeks of exercise are accessible in the trial version, after which, you will have to purchase the full version to continue your progress. The workouts include a combination of strength exercises, yoga, and pilates that focus on maintaining healthy muscles. These exercises require no specialized equipment. Short videos explain precisely how to perform these exercises, and you have the option of grouping several exercises into your work out set. The app also lets you track the workouts you have completed and the ones you will have to perform in the following weeks. One of the main limitations of this app is that it is available only for iOS users (not for Android), so it does not score well regarding inclusiveness and the extent of its reach. There have also been reports that the in-app purchases are not restorable, meaning if you pay for the full version and accidentally uninstall the app, reinstalling it will only take you back to the free version.
