Infant Care – Text4Baby
Free text messages about your baby to your cell phone
Despite decades of public health outreach and education, more than 500,000 babies are born prematurely and an estimated 28,000 children die before their first birthday each year in the U.S.
To help pregnant women and new moms get information about the health of their babies and giving them 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.
