INDIANA (WTHI) - The Indiana State Department of Health created a mobile app to reduce infant mortality and improve maternal health.

It’s called Liv, the pregnancy app. The service is free.

The app promotes early prenatal care and education about pregnancy. It includes information about nutrition, an interactive calendar, a journal feature and more than 100 articles, checklists and how-to’s based on best medical practices.

It also includes links to other resources, including contacts for doctors, hospitals, food banks, Women, Infants and Children (WIC) clinics and birthing centers. Users can sign up to receive messages and alerts appropriate to their stage of pregnancy.

You can even submit your own questions.

Health care professionals say having a healthy baby starts long before a woman becomes pregnant.

For new moms, like Logen Jones in Clinton, she says she relied on other mom's advice during her pregnancy.

She tells News 10 her doctor visits were not very informative.

“The thing I was most scared about was when my doctor didn't check me that often,” said Jones. “He only checked me once and that was the day I had him. In one of my appointments, I actually cried because he didn't check me.”

She says a credible app through the health department, like Liv, would have taken some of those concerns away.

To download the app to your phone, go to the App Store on your phone and type, “Liv: the pregnancy app”.
