The goal of this project was to develop a self-help Android application to aid pregnant women in achieving healthy weight gain during pregnancy. Using Scrum, an agile software development approach, the team gathered requirements, designed, and implemented a smartphone application utilizing the Android and Google Health platforms. This application empowers women to take their health into their own hands, and has the potential of reducing short-term and long-term health risks associated with gestational weight gain for both mother and child. This application is an example of continued advancement of mobile technologies in healthcare, which drives the shift from a reactionary to preventative treatment paradigm.
