Britain’s first iPhone baby pregnancy

An application for the iPhone has helped a woman who was considering IVF treatment to become pregnant

The couple had tried for three years to conceive before they heard about the fertility app and downloaded it to her iPhone. The 30-year-old entered her body temperature daily and the app calculated when she would be most fertile. A relative said: “She followed the advice and within two months she was expecting. We’re all overjoyed.” The mother-to-be does not want to be identified until after the baby has been born.

The relative said: “It’s due any day. Every one’s keeping their fingers crossed there are no complications. She’s proud to say it will be an ‘iPhone baby’. Without the app she might not have fallen pregnant.”

Last week an iPhone application that claims to be able to tell parents what their baby’s cries mean was launched. The Cry Translator app, which costs £17,99, is said by its designers to be 96 per cent accurate in interpreting cries of distress from babies. The programme uses the iPhone‘s microphone to receive the sound, analyses it, and displays information about what it means on the screen. Researchers led by Dr Antonio Portugal Ramírez, a Spanish paediatrician, developed the project after finding that babies’ wails could be broken down into five separate categories. They learned that all babies, regardless of the language they are exposed to at home, have the same distinctive cries to indicate whether they are hungry, annoyed, tired, stressed or bored.
