2. Track Pregnancy Symptoms using an Apple Watch

Simply open the Cycle Tracking app on the watch to add all your symptoms. Your Apple Watch will also display your gestational age along with an analysis of the symptoms you record.

3. Monitor Heart Rate Fluctuations

An increasing heart rate is natural during pregnancy. watchOS 11 prompts you to review your high heart rate notification settings. This ensures you’re alerted only for significant deviations from your new baseline.

Not only this, but your iPhone will also track your Walking Steadiness to alert you of potential slip and fall accidents, which are especially common during the third trimester. 

4. Take a Mental Health Assessment

Mental health plays a major role during and after pregnancy. Millions of women worldwide suffer from postpartum depression since the entire journey can be a rollercoaster of emotions.

You can allow your watchOS 11 to remind you to take mental health assessments through the Health app. These assessments can help identify any potential concerns and offer any support you need.

Apple devices are here to offer you all the support you need during your pregnancy. However, it’s vital that you go for regular checkups since no device can replace proper healthcare.

Additionally, during your pregnancy, you can even track your sleep cycle and make use of a mindfulness app for overall well-being.
