Hesperian Health has announced the launch of its comprehensive app on healthy pregnancy and birth in Spanish. This version joins Hesperian’s English-language app, “Safe Pregnancy and Birth,” which has been downloaded more than 60,000 times, and provides information, including illustrations, on staying healthy during pregnancy, recognizing danger signs during pregnancy, delivery and after birth – and what to do about them – and when to refer a woman to emergency care.
From Hesperian’s announcement:
Available as a free download for iPhone and Android , “El embarazo y el parto seguros” contains lifesaving information presented in clear, accessible language and with informative illustrations . The app is ideal for working with community health workers and midwives with varied literacy levels in the US and abroad.
