Webinar : How You Can Promote Text4baby To Your Constituents

We wanted to update you on the launch of text4baby. Since the White House announcement last Thursday, we have registered over 10,000 women in the service from all 50 states.

Below is a chart showing the geographic distribution of the subscribers so far (1,270 in CA, 1,079 in TX, 489 in OH…).


Hopefully you have also seen some of the substantial press coverage that text4baby has generated. You can find the official White House press release and other articles and TV clips that have appeared since Thursday on our News page.


A broad range of outreach partners - health plans, state and local health departments, professional associations, health delivery networks, pharmacy chains, community health organizations and faith-based organization – are actively engaged in promoting the service among their constituents.
