Text Messages for Healthy Moms – Join Text4baby!

ODS has partnered with the Text4baby, a free mobile information service that provides pregnant women and new moms with information to give their babies the best possible start in life. The FREE service was created by the National Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies Coalition and launched in 2010. Women who sign up for the service by texting BABY to 511411 (or BEBE in Spanish) will receive free SMS text messages each week, timed to their due date or baby’s date of birth. To date, more than 50,000 women have registered to receive text messages.

Many of us here in the Healthcare Services department at ODS have signed up for these texts, although the majority of us are not pregnant, we wanted to research the program.  My text for today (for my made up baby) said, “Your baby can feel you dance, so play some music! She weighs just over a pound & can hear lots of sounds.“  Overall, we feel that it is a great service and hope you would explore it as well if you or someone you know is pregnant.
