In an era when more and more women are delaying their choice to start a family, one woman has decided to both embrace the trend and empower women through a simple app.
The Wonder Clock, created by Mira Kaddoura, was created to give women a sense of when their biological clock would stop ticking.
Kaddoura didn’t intend for this clock to become a straightforward medical tool, although it will tell you exactly when the clock will stop, but to get women to talk about their lifestyles.
“I created this clock to face my own fears,” said Kaddoura on her website, “To open a dialogue with other women about fertility, empowerment and loving ourselves.”
According to The Huffington Post, Kaddoura said she came up with the idea for the app after her doctor said she had to start thinking about children, fertility and issues women have with pregnancies.
“We are women, and we are ticking,” Kaddoura said. “But we are so much more.”
Some app users have tweeted about the clock and believe "making time tangible helps facing fears and to overcome them."
On the other hand, others have criticized the app by saying things like, "no pressure girls but there is now an iPhone app to count down your biological clock."
What do you think of The Wonder Clock app? Do you think fertility is an important subject to address?
