Apple Watch can be used to help monitor expecting mothers

I know this isn’t an Immunization directly related post but I think this is pretty huge.  Apple Watch has implemented an application that synch’s up with Sens4Baby. The result is a doctor can remotely monitor an expecting mother in near real-time. Sounds like it can be used to both monitor the babies heart beat and the mother’s contractions. Also it can allow for security real time messaging between the doctor and the mother. Apparently I’m not the only one that things this is huge, their website crashed from all the traffic after the announcement. It’s going to be really interesting to see how health care evolves with the current evolution of wireless devices.
