What is Pregknowsis?
Pregknowsis is an information-based website all about trying to conceive, pregnancy, and early parenthood. It started with a pregnant woman (now mom) seeking answers to all of the open questions about conception and pregnancy – and there were a lot! Part of our purpose is to be different from other pregnancy-related sites – YOU build the community! You develop, post, and answer poll questions, you blog on your favorite topics, the site is your content. The answers and data are from you and others like you – we analyze the answers and make it all meaningful for you!
We're continuing to build and grow based on your participation. Soon, we'll not only show you poll answers, but you’ll be able to see how the answers change for people just like you (age, BMI, etc.)! Yes, we're excited about it too, but we need your help to get there - so let’s get started filling out polls! Remember, your help asking and answering questions creates better answers for everyone, allowing us all to get “answers to the unknown” about the pregnancy process.
We're always open to feedback, so let us know what you’d like to see or change. We exist to help you look at the experience of pregnancy in a way that is meaningful to you…and to have some fun doing it along the way!
You ask and answer questions, we do the rest. It's that simple!
How Pregknowsis works - 3 simple steps
#1: Fill out a fast (less than 3 mins), free profile - get custom answers to your questions, help others answer theirs
#2: Ask or answer questions you have; read or write blogs and view message boards from our community
#3: Have fun – after all, this entire process is an exciting time in your life and we’re here to add to it!
Happy answer hunting!
