A survey has found that mothers are using online researchers to research not only their children’s health but their own. It was found that search engines and apps were the most popular choice in regards to these beneficial needs. Online shopping has also increased for mothers especially when using mobile devices like smart phones and tablets.

The most popular activity was looking up illness symptoms on search engines with 76% of mothers doing so. 73% of mothers researched child development, 58% searching for information on medicine or healthcare and 55% tracking child’s development. The same percentage of women also tracked ovulation and pregnancy.
