Wood County Health Department

I am a WIC nutritionist and health educator at the Wood County Health Department, and I encourage my patients to enroll with text4baby. It is so helpful to my patients because it provides tips they may not know or reminds them of important health information. The texts provide tips that can link them to more information from their health department or another source. Many of my patients have told me that the well-baby check-up reminders were particularly useful to them.

I also used the service with my son, Odyn, who was born last year. I really like the frequency of the messages; receiving 2-3 texts a week is very helpful. I also like how the texts are timed to your baby's age or how far along you are in your pregnancy. The program gives great reminders about immunizations and safety tips!
