The U.S. ranks near the top among developed nations in infant mortality, and according to the CDC, that rate nearly doubles for minority mothers. Text4baby, an interactive text messaging service, addresses health inequities by getting critical information into the hands of new and expecting parents. Text4baby features the latest prenatal and infant care guidelines, food allergy information from FARE (Food Allergy & Research Education) and is clinically validated with medical content reviewed by Harvard Medical School faculty.
Text4baby is available through private and public partnerships to educate women every step of the way from early pregnancy through babies’ first year with critical tips, appointment and screening reminders, and more, in English and Spanish. Enhanced features available include specific messaging for high-risk pregnancy, Medicaid resources and network providers.
