Prenatal Education in the Digital Age

The millennial pregnant patient expects an innovative approach to prenatal care. Patients are reaching to peer support online communities or engaging in direct-to-consumer mobile applications during their pregnancy. Currently developed solutions show promise, however, the clinical impact and generalizability of these solutions remains unclear. Technology has the potential to decrease health care disparities, improve patient and provider satisfaction as well as clinical outcomes. In this article we discuss traditional models of prenatal education as well and suggest how obstetricians should consider utilizing technology as an approach to provide prenatal education to their patients.
