About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

Obesity in pregnancy Mood swing in pregnancy Unhealthy lifestyle Lack of essential knowledge of healthy pregnancy Lack of self-motivation

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

After having research results we chose to create an app, which could help women to track mood swings and suggest healthy life style advice depending of their feeling during that day. The idea is that women could easily track their mood changes during the time of the pregnancy. The results will be shown in clear chart and diagram where user could see daily, weekly, monthly results in curves and bars. As well we have to mention that app will have a day counter until predictable childbirth and the results will be shown in simple way where user could see her current place in the timeline.
Impact: How does it Work

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

A user logs in Fit Mommy with the user name: Jessica. On the welcome page, the pregnant loading bar shows that there are 12 weeks and 3 days left till her due date. Jessica feels a bit tired today because she could not sleep well last night. She chooses ‘‘not happy’’ mood and see the suggestions to cheer up her mood. Here are the suggestions for Jessica’s ‘’not happy’’ mood today: 1. Do small exercise each time (Instruction) 2. Shoulder rotation (Instruction) 3. Swim simulation (Instruction) 4. Runner’s stretch (Instruction) Jessica feels like swimming because she thinks that swimming will refresh her body and especially help her to get a deep sleep tonight. Jessica chooses ‘’Swim simulation’’ suggestion. Jessica closes the app.
Sustainability

Marketplace: Who else is addressing the problem outlined here? How does the proposed project differ from these approaches?

There are many mobile applications to encourage pregnant women taking exercises during their pregnancies, but most of them are trying to push the women to take physical exercises. Our application is approaching in a different way, which is through the women’s mood.

Our first “Aha!” moment was in 2012 year. When we were introduce from Odense University Hospital (OUH), Denmark about this problem. After having a lot of meeting’s with clinicians and talking with patients from OUH. We came up with idea about Fit Mommy app which could help in future for pregnant women with her problems.
Our second “Aha!” moment was in this year when we got shortlisted in European Youth Award 2013. After that we got even more boost and believes that our solution might work and succeed in the future.
