"The Alexa Skills Kit (ASK) is just over a year old and we're excited to have 'My Pregnancy' from BabyCenter as one of the first skills created specifically for soon-to-be parents," said Rob Pulciani, Director Amazon Alexa. "Alexa enables hands-free, voice control that makes life simpler, but is especially convenient for multi-tasking parents. We're pleased that BabyCenter has identified Alexa as the place for its first voice-enabled application."
