Designed for women in labor, this application allows you to time your contractions. Simply fire up Contractions and press the icon once when a contraction starts, and once when it ends (better yet - have the baby's father do it!)

This program keeps track of the interval between contractions as well as the duration of each contraction. Just tap the blue area on the top of the screen at the start and end of each contraction. (Note: versions before version 1.2 require that you instead tap the on-screen button).

If you leave the program and come back, all your data is still there. You can even exit mid-contraction and return.

Also, an email button allows you send your data to yourself (for posterity!), the father, or to your medical practitioner.

Important note:

This software is not intended to substitute in any way for the care of a medical practitioner. You should always consult with a doctor or other medical caregiver.

did the job

When my contractions started at 2 am, I knew I was too tired to try to time them. So I went looking for an iPhone app! This worked perfectly, although the button is small to push, a few times I had to press it again and again, just to get it to start. But it wasn't a big deal. I would recommend it to help time the contractions.

edit: I had to change my review, because with the new version where the entire upper half is the button, it is GREAT! I was playing with the new version as I was nursing my baby. I love the flash of the baby that appears briefly, so you know the button was "pushed"

5/5 stars

Nifty tool for pregnant women

What a wonderful find - a great tool for multitaskers since you can switch to another app. Timing contractions was so low-tech until this came along. Has helped me tremendously so far in the past 9 hours - love the email log feature, been sending updates to my husband, and the big button is great. Just had to write a review - THANKS!!

5/5 stars


First, congratulations on your new bundle of joy! And thanks for taking the time to post a review in what must be an unbelievable hectic time for you.

Credit for the new, bigger button goes to Rachael Reisdorf.
