Antenatal care refers to the health care, periodic and regular supervision to a pregnant woman throughout pregnancy until labor which will help reducing maternal death rates and miscarriages as well as birth defects, low birth weight, newborn infections and other preventable health problems. E-health plays a vital role to improve and assist independent living of the pregnant women. A national e-health strategy sets out the objectives to promote the use of Communication devices like computer, mobile phone and communication satellite in the health sector. Some of the report's findings say 94% of countries have a national policy for women's and children's health; Fifty-six per cent of countries report that e-health is supporting major women's and children's health initiatives. This paper is an attempt to show that the proposed system called e-health assistance is a perfect companion for the pregnant women in various stages of pregnancy and it provides guidance throughout the course of pregnancy to prevent potential health problems while promoting healthy life styles. The proposed system is a mobile and web application which has features such as providing repository for all the medical history and reports, calculate due date and BMI, suggesting health and nutrition tips periodically based on the medical reports, social networking among other pregnant women in the nearby location.
