Frequently asked questions (FAQ)
What is the My Pregnancy skill for Amazon Alexa?
It's a voice-activated tool (or Alexa "skill") that tells you about your pregnancy. Every time you use My Pregnancy, you’ll get a card in your Alexa app that shows you the info you just heard and a stunning 3-D fetal development image, plus links to more resources.
How do I start My Pregnancy?
There are two ways to launch My Pregnancy. You can:
- Go to the Skills section of your Alexa app, find My Pregnancy, and click "Enable Skill." Then tell Alexa, "Start My Pregnancy.”
- Or simply say, “Alexa, enable the My Pregnancy skill."
You'll be prompted to state your due date, and you're off! (If you don’t know your due date, calculate it here.)

What else can I do with My Pregnancy?
Once you’ve started My Pregnancy, you can set your due date or change it, and move around the skill to hear updates for earlier or later pregnancy weeks. To do that, launch My Pregnancy and say "Alexa" and the number of the week you’d like to hear. For example, "Alexa, 21 weeks" will take you to the info for 21 weeks, provided you’re already in the skill.
How do I access the skill?
You can access the My Pregnancy skill on any device that supports Amazon Alexa. Those devices include the Amazon Echo, Amazon Tap, Echo Dot, and Amazon Fire TV. The skill itself is free. To buy a device, head over to Amazon.
