States Compete to Promote Vital Info Among Pregnant and New Moms

On Mother's Day, HHS launched the 2013 Text4baby State Enrollment Contest, a national competition (through Oct. 31) that helps give pregnant and new moms vital information to stay healthy and give their babies a strong start.  Women who text “BABY” (or “BEBE” for Spanish) to 511411 receive three free text messages a week through pregnancy and until baby’s first birthday.
