What is Pregnancy Journey by Sema4?
Sema4’s Pregnancy Journey is a pregnancy and postpartum educational resource that you can access through your Sema4 patient portal account. Pregnancy Journey allows you to access pregnancy and postpartum content, track your pregnancy week by week, and (if you opt into connecting your health records with Sema4) view your vital sign information in the context of standard pregnancy development information.
Pregnancy Journey’s Vital Sign Tracker enables you to pull in your vital sign information from recent doctor’s appointments in order to access and monitor your health information in the context of your pregnancy.
What are the benefits to using Pregnancy Journey?
Pregnancy Journey allows you to:
- Access clinically validated pregnancy and postpartum content. Pregnancy Journey includes weekly content that reflects where you are in your pregnancy, based on the due date that you provide. You can follow along week-to-week, or check out upcoming weeks in advance to see what’s happening next.
- Monitor your vital signs. If you choose to connect your medical records to your Sema4 account, Pregnancy Journey allows you to import your vital sign information. This allows you to track your actual health information alongside traditional pregnancy development information that covers 40 weeks of pregnancy.
- Power research discoveries. Sema4 is proud of our internationally-recognized research program. Collecting and aggregating data from patients like you, who connect their health records through the Sema4 patient portal helps Sema4 uncover unique insights that cannot be gathered from traditional research studies. Sema4’s pregnancy-related research includes studies into better predicting preeclampsia, gestational diabetes mellitus, maternal mortality, and more.
Why is Pregnancy Journey different from other pregnancy tracking applications and websites?
Pregnancy Journey by Sema4 differs from other pregnancy tracking platforms in that it allows you to import your medical records (if you choose to do so), so you can track your actual health data alongside traditional pregnancy development information.
By connecting your health records to your Sema4 account, you’ll also support Sema4’s research mission to better understand pregnancy in order to more accurately predict the complications that can occur with it, such as preeclampsia, gestational diabetes mellitus, and maternal mortality.
