Text4Baby Enrollment Contest Being Held

Text4Baby is the largest and only FREE mobile information service designed to promote maternal and child health through text messaging.  Women who text BABY (or BEBE for Spanish) to 51141 receive three free text messages per week with health and safety information through pregnancy and baby’s first year.

The service uses SMS technology, taking advantage of the fact that 99% of text messages are read and 90% within three minutes.  The messages are tied to mom’s due date or baby’s birthdate so that information is clinically relevant to each individual.

At this time, Text4Baby is having a contest in Iowa to name Iowa’s champion for maternal and infant health outcomes.  The county with the largest increase of enrollment through September will be named the winner.  Currently, Ringgold County is leading with 13% of new parents already signed up for this service.  Please help us increase our number by sharing this message in our communities and encouraging pregnant and new moms to sign up for the FREE service!
