Positively Pregnant NZ App
Areas of my expertise
by Tatiana Ceban
Positively Pregnant is a mobile phone app, developed by clinical and community psychologists in collaboration with midwives, antenatal educators, and computer scientists in New Zealand. This interactive app uses the CCCC model and principles of positive psychology to offer information, activities, and structures for reflection for pregnant women to promote resilience and wellbeing.
The app consists of four types of components:
Know Yourself: Interactive assessments to take stock of one’s own strengths, resources, stressors, coping strategies, support systems, health behaviors, cognitive style, and emotions.
Conversations: Structure and prompts for conversations with the partner, whanau, LMC, or for individual reflection on topics such as birth planning, household chores, financial challenges, and childrearing beliefs, traditions, hopes and plans.
