This app provides users with information about what to expect if their baby is admitted to a neonatal unit, NICU or special care unit. It contains information on routine checks and tests, feeding, equipment, common diseases, and medication. It also has information about what you can expect when your baby is born prematurely (before the due date), advice for Dads and what is needed when your baby goes home. You can also read stories of other parents’ experience and journey with their baby in the Neonatal unit.

Reviewer:Alice Ao, Student nurse, University of Auckland July 2016 Clinical score: ★★★★★ Review: "This app is most useful for parents or expecting mothers and fathers. It offers access to a wide range of useful and relevant information regarding the care of a newborn baby, information about the Central DHB's neonatal unit and other interesting features such as learning about others stories. Safety concerns: No safety concerns about the use of this app." New Zealand relevance: ★★★★★ Review: "Very relevant to New Zealand — is based mainly on MidCentral DHB's neonatal unit. Note, some aspects may not necessarily be the same across all DHBs."

The formal app review is based on the Mobile App Rating Scale (MARS) developed by researchers at Queensland University of Technology, Australia.(1) It is designed to score apps on a few comprehensive dimensions — engagement, functionality, aesthetics, and information quality. Each dimension comprises several items which are rated on a 5-point scale from “1. Inadequate” to “5. Excellent”.
