App monitors the heartbeat of that bun in the oven

App monitors the heartbeat of that bun in the oven

Bellabeat, an app that lets expectant moms monitor the baby's heartbeat in utero, is thinking about mom now, too.

A new update to the app monitors changes in mom's mental health, besides her physical health and the baby's development.

According to Mashable:

Bellabeat's Connected System allows pregnant women to listen to their children's heartbeats through a device that connects to a smartphone with an audio cable. It uses sound waves to find the baby's heartbeat while the accompanying Bellabeat app records the audio.

The app tracks heartbeats per minute and gives users tools to track other important stats, like the number of times a baby kicks or how its weight changes over time.

The new mood-tracking feature is meant to help pregnant women recognize early symptoms of depression, said Bellabeat cofounder Urška Sršen.
