Text-4-babyGet support throughout your pregnancy and your baby’s first year with FREE messages on topics like prenatal care, baby health, parenting and more!

To help more pregnant women and new moms get information about caring  for their health and giving their babies the best possible start in  life, the National Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies Coalition (HMHB)  launched text4baby, the first free health text messaging service in the  U.S.Text4baby supports moms by providing accurate, text-length health  information and resources in a format that is personal and timely, using  a channel she knows and uses.

How Text4baby Works

Registration is easy and can be done online here or from your cell  phone. Use your cell phone to text the word BABY (or BEBE for Spanish)  to the number 511411. You’ll be asked to enter your baby’s due date or  your baby’s birthday and your zip code.  Once registered, you will start  receiving free messages with tips for your pregnancy or caring for your  baby.

These messages are timed to your due date or your baby’s birth  date. If you are pregnant and your due date changes, text UPDATE to  511411 to enter your new due date. Once you have your baby, be sure to  text in UPDATE with your baby’s birthday so you keep getting messages  through baby’s first year.
If you want to stop receiving  messages from text4baby, text STOP to 511411. To start receiving the  messages again, you will have to enroll again by sending BABY to 511411  (BEBE to 511411 for Spanish messages).

Text4baby Messages are Free

Thanks to the support of  CTIA – The Wireless Foundation and participating mobile operators, all messages you receive from  text4baby are free! Even individuals without a text messaging plan can  get these messages for free. If someone has limited texts per month,  text4baby won’t take away from that limit.
