We conceived babyMed with one goal in mind: to improve a couple's chances getting pregnant and having a healthy pregnancy and baby. This goal is ving achieved by offering dozens of fertility and pregnancy interactive tools and content, and to increase your chances getting pregnant and having a healthy pregnancy through the medically correct and timely use of text messaging.
Most of us do a lot of preparations when we start cooking our favorite meals such as Thanksgiving dinner. We have a list and purchase all the ingredients, measuring carefully, and stirring consistently to cook that meal to absolute perfection. And we usually start early even weeks in advance. We follow dinner recipes to a tee. Not so with a pregnancy. Most pregnancies follow the "just do it" principle, get pregnant first, then figure out what to do next. This is not the optimal way to have a healthy pregnancy.
babyMed teaches you all the ingredients and tools you need for a healthy and happy pregnancy.
babyMed wants you to get ready for your pregnancy in the pre-trimester, the preconception period before your pregnancy. Getting ready in the pre-trimester will help ensure that you get pregnant faster in optimal shape and have a healthy baby.
Getting pregnant, experiencing the ups and downs of pregnancy, and delivering a healthy baby involves a steep learning curve for most people. After all, most of us took sex education classes in high school and college that taught us how to not get pregnant, but not many of us took any classes on how to get pregnant! In addition, when we first decide we want to try to get pregnant, there aren't too many reputable resources available.
Over the last few decades, women have been having their first child at an older age which makes it more difficult to get pregnant. babyMed has helped thousands of couples get educated about fertility, trying to conceive (TTC), and pregnancy.
Couples that are trying to get pregnant often look for online support such as forums and groups, or they simply use Google. However, the answers they find online are often unscientific and don't address their main concerns. Unfortunately, many websites are incorrect and lead couples in the wrong direction. babyMed is the only site that gets it right. babyMed was conceived and nurtured by Dr. Amos Grunebaum, an OB/GYN with decades of experience in helping couples get pregnant and have healthy babies. He is among the world's leading authorities on fertility and pregnancy. Over his 40+ years as an OB/GYN in New York City, Dr. Amos has delivered more than 5,000 babies and has supervised more than 20,000 deliveries.

The 6 Trimesters of Pregnancy
You always assumed that each pregnancy is divided into three trimesters. But did you know that there are actually six trimesters? The six trimesters are roughly divided each into segments of about 3 months:
- Pre-Pregnancy Trimester (preconception)
- First Pregnancy Trimester (up to 12-13 weeks)
- Second Pregnancy Trimester (up to 26-27 weeks)
- Third Pregnancy Trimester (up to delivery)
- Fourth Pregnancy Trimester (postbirth or postpartum)
- Fifth Pregnancy Trimester (going back to work)
These six trimesters have each their own succint different emotional and physical happenings that make them unique. Let babyMed guide you through these six pregnancy trimesters.

It's all about conception, pregnancy, getting pregnant. You don't learn anything in High School or College about getting pregnant and having a healthy pregnany. And then when you try, you often cannot get pregnant.

Babymed was found to be the best online calculator to precisely establish a couple's fertile days:
Want to get educated by an authority? Babymed was conceived by a real doctor, well-known pregnancy and fertility expert and ObGyn Amos Grunebaum, MD. Dr. Amos, as he is known by his patients, is an ObGyn and a professor at a New York Medical School. Professor Grunebaum realized early on that his patients, though very well educated, lacked one important piece of information: How to get pregnant and have a healthy pregnancy.
While most High School and College students learn a lot about how to NOT get pregnant, they rarely if ever learn enough about HOW to improve their chances of getting pregnant. So in 1996 Professor Grunebaum came up with the idea of creating an online site to educate women and men about pregnancy and trying to get pregnant. His first website (called babydata.com) was eventually acquired by WebMD. Soon thereafter his German website 9Monate.de was acquired by a German health and media company.
Professor Grunebaum envisions using his extensive knowledge of fertility and pregnancy to continue to create extensive tools, information, data, and a supportive community enabling women and men to get pregnant faster and have a healthy pregnancy and baby.
Today, BabyMed is the Internet’s most popular and best independent pregnancy and fertility website created by a practicing obstetrician and gynecologist. Since its creation, BabyMed.com has earned the loyalty of many who have been trying to conceive and became pregnant around the world. Now with more than 2 million monthly visitors, BabyMed generates over 10 million pageviews a month and has been steadily growing in its global audience and is among the few major fertility and pregnancy sites with mobile optimization.
The best online and mobile pregnancy and fertility calculator
Scientifically proven. Researchers analyzed more than 50 popular websites and smartphone apps that offer to predict a woman's "fertility window," or the days during a woman's menstrual cycle when she can become pregnant.
They found that the fertility windows predicted by the apps and websites varied widely, and that many of these windows included days after ovulation, when the chances that sexual intercourse will result in pregnancy are close to zero.
According to Setton, research shows that a woman's "fertile window" -- or the best time to have sex -- includes the day she ovulates and the five days before that. For a woman with a menstrual cycle of 28 days, that would be days 10 through 15.
Yet only one website and three apps came up with that fertile window, Setton said. They included the Babymed.com site and the apps Clue; My Days - Period & Ovulation; and Period Tracker, the study found.
The rest of the calculators, Setton said, "were all over the place."
