The Louisiana Legislative Women’s Caucus is partnering up with “Text4baby” in order to help women across the state who are expecting. New Orleans Senator Karen Peterson says the idea behind the service is to educate expectant mothers, to prevent premature deliveries and reduce infant mortality rates.

This is the first free health service text messaging service in the United States for expectant mothers.

According to their website, Text4babys ” …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. Over 85% of Americans own a cell phone and 72% of cell users send or receive text messages”

To access the service, text to 511411 and include the word “BABY” in the message. Once that step is completed,  you will be all set to receive messages from the service.
