Baby Text Alerts Keep Mommy Brain At Bay

pregnant woman textingMommy Brain!  Thank goodness, it’s temporary.

Just about every new Mom — and sometimes even pregnant ladies — knows the struggle of juggling mommy, wife, work, church, social responsibilities and everything else at one time.  With so much to keep up with, it’s no wonder she does something completely spacey or is sometimes forgetful, like driving a mile down the road with a cup of coffee on the roof of the car.

Well, we may not be able to do anything about the coffee on the car, but we might can help with some of the baby-related stuff you have to remember.  Thanks to the helpful folks at Voxiva, there is a free text-messaging service designed for expectant parents.  This Washington-based, health-messaging business has partnered with the National Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies Coalition and other companies and nonprofit agencies, including 16 telcoms that  donated their networks, to provide the a text alert service to remind Mom to take her vitamins, get an exam, etc.

Here’s How It Works!

Simply send a one-word text message consisting of the word BABY (or BEBE for Spanish) to 511-411.  At the prompt, enter your baby’s due date and your ZIP code. That’s all it takes to start receiving these helpful little reminders.  “It’s like carrying around your own personal pediatrician, reminding you to take your vitamins or to go for your ultrasound, from the time you sign up until about a year after your delivery,” says Warren Buckleitner of the New York Times.  How cool is that?!
