Latina Moms/Moms-to-Be, Sign Up for Free Bilingual Health Tips by Text (and Maybe Win Year’s Supply of Baby Products)
Those who sign up for the text4baby service, which sends bilingual health tips to mothers and expectant mothers, from Sept. 1-30, 2012, will be entered to win a year’s supply of baby products.
The contest coincides with National Infant Mortality Awareness Month in September and aims to demonstrate the importance of women’s health and connect more mothers to health information.
Text4baby, which is sponsored by Johnson & Johnson, is a free mobile service that sends critical health information to expectant and new moms timed to their pregnancy or baby’s development. Messages were developed by government and non-profit health experts like the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and cover nutrition, immunization, and birth defect prevention, among other topics.
To sign up, Text the word “BABY” (or “BEBE” for Spanish) to 511411 or visit www.text4baby.org.
