Small Moments, Big Impact: New App For Parents
As a new mom, I remember being overwhelmed with the uncertainty, worries and complex emotions that all came with motherhood. However, I struggled to find a
resource that captured those issues.
Small Moments, Big Impact (SMBI) is a smartphone app created by health care providers, public media producers, and mothers. It is designed to be used during your baby’s first six months, but it's not for information about common health questions. Instead it focuses on your relationship with your baby and the feelings of love, stress, fatigue, frustration, and hope— all of which are part of being a parent. The app is available in the App Store here. (It's not yet available on Android.)
As you use the app this week, you’ll find ways to connect with your baby and yourself. You will hear stories from other mothers, see them interacting with their babies, do some self reflection, express your thoughts and feeling and make movies with your baby to have memories forever. I urge you to download it and share it with friends. Give it a try— through this journey with the app, you’ll see that even small moments with your baby can have a big impact.
