‘No one wants to see me’: Woman gets pregnant in the first-ever pregnancy test app
The app has sold more than 1 million downloads in its first two weeks.
But the first woman in the U.S. to get pregnant using a smartphone app is facing a public backlash after she was accused of lying about her condition.
Sarah Stiles, 22, told the Los Angeles Times she was in labor at her home in California when she got a phone call from a woman who was looking for information about her.
She said the caller said she needed a medical checkup and the app could provide that information.
Stiles told the newspaper she did not think the woman was telling the truth.
The woman’s family told the paper she did in fact go into labor, and Stiles had her baby.
The woman’s story has since been made public by her employer.
The company said it would “take steps to ensure” the story is not repeated.
The company also released a statement saying it does not condone any behavior that violates our company standards of care.
It added that Stiles has been fired.
