More than 500,000 babies are born prematurely, and 28,000 children die before their first birthday in the US. So that babies can be born healthy and remain healthy! Text4baby sends:

  • tips for the mother’s health timed to the exact week of the pregnancy
  • health tips for caring for the infant timed to the baby’s age
  • information on recalls on infant products


Individuals: Text4baby is designed for pregnant women, fathers-to-be, and parents of newborns. Grandparents and child care givers can sign up too! They can provide more support for the mom-to-be or the new mom with information and resources on taking care of their bundle of joy!
