Simply Obstetrics is a point-of-care reference App for managing pregnant patients in primary care. It follows through from routine care in pregnancy to normal labour and delivery, also covering obstetrical emergencies. The bullet-point topic primers give you the answers you need at the time you need them, based on current Canadian obstetrical guidelines produced by the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada (SOGC), MoreOB, and ALARM (a course to train caregivers how to manage obstetrical emergencies). The App also has a useful reference section, including pregnancy categories for common prescriptions, acronym definitions, mnemonics, and calculators. We hope to keep developing and improving this project to make it the de facto go-to obstetrics App out there.
