Free Text4Baby Service Not Just for Moms or Moms-to-Be
The free service now sends text messages to encourage dads and dads-to-be to engage with their children early. The expanded program follows the success of text4baby for moms and moms-to-be. Dads, friends and relatives, and even health care providers can sign up to receive text4baby messages. Text4baby shows the potential of mobile health technology to address a critical national health priority: maternal and child health.
Even if you don’t have a text messaging plan, you can get these messages for free. If you have limited texting per month, text4baby won’t take away from your total amount of messages. The majority, but not all mobile carriers are providing this service. It is available to over 96% of people with cell phones in the U.S.
