If you're pregnant or have a baby under one year, you can sign up for FREE text messages sent directly to your cell phone through text4baby. You'll receive three text messages each week, timed to your due date or baby's birthday. Messages start in pregnancy and go through your baby's first year. You'll get tips on prenatal and infant care, immunization, postpartum depression, nutirition, oral health, quitting smoking, safety and more.

NEW! On September 18, 2014, Text4baby will launch its new Influenza Module for the 2014-2015 flu season. That day, subscribers to the mobile information service will receive a text message encouraging mothers to get a flu vaccine. They will also be directed to the updated module, through which mothers can set up customized reminders. The previous season’s module prompted over 3,000 flu vaccines, and organizers expect a great outcome again this season. This year, the service will again offer free flu shots to participating mothers in select states through February 28, 2015. Moms enrolled in Text4baby will receive a text question asking if they want a free flu shot. After replying “yes,” they will be sent a one-time, non-transferrable code to redeem the free vaccine. Educational and reminder messages will be sent out periodically to encourage current and new Text4baby participants to take advantage of the offer. For more information on Text4Baby's Influenza Module please visit their web page here.

To sign up for the service, patients and families can text BABY (or BEBE for Spanish) to 511411.Frequently Asked Questions
