The app allows patients to follow their care plan, easily access customizable resources

WellSpan Health is now offering a new mobile app to help expectant mothers more easily follow their care plan and access customizable resources and educational content during their pregnancy.

In addition to the latest resources and educational content, the Babyscripts app allows expectant mothers to access their prenatal health care professional’s care plan though simple, weekly tasks and tracking.

“This is the latest way we’re supporting soon-to-be moms and their families,” said Megan Lecas, vice president of women and children services at WellSpan Health. “We understand that every pregnancy is different, and an expectant mom can have a question about any part of her journey at any time. This new mobile platform will serve as a complement to the outstanding care provided by our women’s health team at WellSpan in a way that keeps patients engaged while reducing the number of checkup appointments needed.”

WellSpan launched the Babyscripts app to pregnant patients in WellSpan OB/GYN practices across the region. In its first week, more than 250 patients downloaded the app.
