We believe that the strength of the partnership and the community can make an incredible difference in the lives of women and children, said Judy Meehan, CEO of the National Healthy Mothers, Babies Coalition. Text4baby brings HMHB mission to life with the help of our partners, we believe we can be a powerful catalyst for change. An educational program of the National Coalition Mothers Healthy Babies , text4baby provides advice on health through a text message to those who need it most. Women who are committed to the service via SMS to 511 411 CHILD receive three free SMS every week in time for their due date or date of birth. These messages focus on a variety of topics essential for maternal and child health, including prevention of birth defects, immunizations, seasonal, and sleep safely.

The good news, he says, is that prevention programs work. Everyone should know their cardiovascular risk factors and pay attention to any family history of heart disease. This could save your life.
