Planning for Pregnancy? These Are 4 Reasons to Take a Video Course by Flo

Flo – the #1 mobile app for women’s health – designed a course just for you. And the arguments to take it are very weighty! 

Getting pregnant. Maybe you’ve been thinking about it for a while. Maybe the desire just hit you. Either way, now that you and your partner have decided to go for it, you’re feeling excited – and scared, nervous, anxious – and all of those emotions are normal! 

Before you go down the rabbit hole of online information, it’s important to find out what you need to know to increase your chances of conception and pregnancy success. 

That’s why Flo – the #1 mobile app for women’s health – designed a course just for you.

Here are the top 4 reasons you should take this course:

1. It is accurate and informative. 

The leading doctor behind the course is Lubna Pal, Professor of Ob/Gyn & Reproductive Sciences and Reproductive Endocrinology at Yale University School of Medicine, with over 30 years of experience helping women get pregnant. She’s seen everything. And lots of it. She knows how best to set your body’s stage to become pregnant. 

With her guidance, the class covers all aspects of getting pregnant - from nutrition and doctors’ appointments you should have first to how and when to take a pregnancy test for the most accurate results. 

Getting Pregnant 101 also tackles the gray areas of research, like coffee consumption, and gives the reasoning behind the most-widely accepted philosophies, so you know you’re doing what’s best for you and for baby.

It describes the foods you should avoid, when to have sex to increase your chances of conception, and even how stress affects conception (this is interesting and important). But it doesn’t stop with just the what. The class explains the WHY of what you should do. Which takes us to…

2. It is comprehensive.

It’s hard to believe that the most important elements of preparing your body for pregnancy can be covered in five short modules (none of the lessons is over seven minutes long), but Flo did it! 

Your time is not wasted, but you learn a lot.

There’s a lot that Flo’s Course offers. But what sets it above other classes is that Flo comes from a deep knowledge of women’s health in general and reproductive health in particular.

The class covers all areas of preparation, and it does it in an order that makes sense. It goes into enough detail to drive the point and make the content memorable, but you don’t feel like you’ve been through medical school either.

Flo’s Getting Pregnant 101 class outlines the WHAT you should do when you decide to try and conceive. From lifestyle changes to doctor’s appointments (and all-too-often forgotten dentist appointments!) to pregnancy tests, the class makes sure you have the information you need. 

Flo outlines what will happen during lifestyle changes, routine appointments and testing, conception, and pregnancy tests.

A highlight is the detailed description of how the egg and sperm travel toward each other, how long each journey takes, and the chances of conception at each stage. It’s fascinating! Birth truly is a miracle!

3. It is manageable.

A friendly, engaging, and knowledgeable woman narrates the classes. It feels like she’s having a conversation with you. She doesn’t lecture. The content is natural and well-designed. So much so, that it’s like the narrator “hears” your question and answers it before you can even ask!

Flo’s 5 modules are well-designed and spaced. None of the modules is very long, so they hold your attention and you keep learning. The conversation is supported with graphics to help pinpoint key information. 

Chunking the information allows you to take the class in little bits. You don’t feel like you need to watch it all at once (although, it’s interesting enough you probably will want to!), and you don’t need to remember where you left off in the video.

The thoughtful design of the course and modules stems from Flo’s strong understanding of user interaction.

4. It is actionable.

Knowing what you should DO at the end of the class is a huge take-away, and Flo’s Getting Pregnant 101 course excels at this. 

At the end of each module, you understand exactly what your next steps should be. 

You know what you can handle and start on your own (making healthy changes to your nutrition and lifestyle). You know what you need to do with your doctors (reproductive check-ups, physical check-ups, and any testing). 

Sometimes there is an overlap between what you can do on your own and when doctors should be involved (women over the age of 35 who don’t get pregnant within a certain amount of trying). Flo does a great job navigating these gray areas with sensitivity while maintaining the standard of information and accuracy. 

There’s a lot that Flo’s Course offers. But what sets it above other classes is that Flo comes from a deep knowledge of women’s health in general and reproductive health in particular. The care and commitment to supporting women in achieving their reproductive goals is evident in the design and presentation of the course. 

And it truly is the class for all women who want to get pregnant.
