Making the best start in life

2015-08-12

Having spent thirty years as a midwife and with a PhD from Uppsala University's Department of Women's and Children's Health, Berit Höglund still lacked a good coherent support for parents-to-be.

So she did something about it. Her mobile app - Maria Mum - now provides critical evidence-based information in an intuitive and interactive format. Simply clicking faces with different expressions rather than responding to descriptive texts help mothers record how they are feeling at any particular moment, for example. Now on sale via App Store and Google Play, Maria Mum is helping countless couples enjoy the thrills and challenges of parenthood.
