Friday Tip: Free Health Resources for Mothers

When I was pregnant I signed up for a free service called Text4babyBy virtue of signing up I received tips to assist me at every stage of my pregnancy and childcare tips after I delivered. The messages helped to supplement the advice I was receiving from my doctors. Because they were from a trusted source, I relied on them. Also, they were very comforting to me as an anxious first-time mom.

I highly reccommend Text4baby. It is a great service and one of the few things in life that is free.  How cool is that?!

Below is more information about the product:


To help more pregnant women and new moms get information about caring for their health and giving their babies the best possible start in life, the National Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies Coalition (HMHB) launched text4baby, the first free health text messaging service in the U.S.Text4baby supports moms by providing accurate, text-length health information and resources in a format that is personal and timely, using a channel she knows and uses. Over 85% of Americans own a cell phone and 72% of cell users send or receive text messages.

How Text4baby Works
