Saline County WIC Office- DRAFT Story

Saline County WIC Office

My name is Disa Farris, and I am a breastfeeding peer counselor at the Saline County WIC Office. I share text4baby information with all moms during their first prenatal visit and rave to them about what wonderful messages they can look forward to receiving, citing examples. One of my moms once told me that she felt text4baby was just like having a really good friend or a sister tapping you on the shoulder with friendly reminders about important health news for her and her baby. I relay that comment to all moms, and some of them sign up right on the spot when they hear that!

I also love the fact that I can now receive messages too. It makes me really aware of what moms are seeing in their messages and helps with questions they may have for me. The messages about breastfeeding are especially well done. We also placed the enrollment button on our health office website. Congrats to you for providing such a much-needed and proactive servce!
