There can be a lot of questions when your family is expecting for the first time.  

One new app, Hiro Baby, aims to ease your mind. It's billed as a personal assistant for new parents. Think Siri, but with a maternal instinct.

Hiro lets users ask questions related to development or other baby needs.

Users can ask the app for suggestions on a good stroller or teething toys or how to start introducing solid foods. 

To test out the features, I told Hiro I was interested in getting a new crib, I also asked the app when it was time to start taking prenatal vitamins. The responses were pretty extensive.

The app will also send notifications to let you know about upcoming milestones for your child.

Hiro responds to text or voice commands.

According to a company press release, Hiro Baby will help with three tasks for free -- along with providing updates on your baby's progress. If you'd like more help, you have to sign up for a premium version -- but that will cost $20 a month.

Even if you just want to use the three free tasks and get updates without paying for the premium -- it can still be a helpful tool before or after your baby's arrival. 

Hiro Baby is available on iOS devices.
