Birth clubs
Users can indicate the due date of their baby when creating a profile. They are then able to join a birth club based on this due date. Users in a birth club will often face the same challenges at roughly the same time due to the fact that they have a similar due date. This allows them to discuss these challenges or questions together.

The app adds value by playing into the needs of the user at different times during their pregnancy. A feature like the pregnancy calendar shows the development of the baby.

Web forum

We've also created a online forum to accommodate users surfing the world wide web. This forum is accessible for anyone visiting the 24baby website. However, when someone wants to create a topic or leave a comment, they have to be logged in.

Next to this forum an admin panel has been created. With this panel administrators can moderate users and content posted to the forum. When a user or topic has been flagged, they can be blocked and the topic can be closed. This prevents abuse of the forum.

API development

To facilitate communication between clients and the data stored in the database we've developed a backend. The use of the query language GraphQL allows faster and easier development by both app developers and web developers.
