Text4baby announced today, in a press release, that they named the multi-platinum, Grammy-award winning singer and actress Brandy as their new Celebrity Ambassador. Brandy is also a mom herself and as Text4Baby mentions a strong supporter of moms getting the information they need that leads to better health for them and their babies. Text4Baby is celebrating 4 years as the nation’s number one mobile health service. Text4Baby says we can expect to see the new ambassador and superstar on new public service announcements in late-February.
In Brandy’s own words;
“With Text4baby’s free, personalized messages, pregnant women and new mothers can receive the critical information they need, exactly when they need it. The messages are helpful, interactive, and provide that extra bit of support we all need when raising a child.”
Women who text BABY (or BEBE for Spanish) to 511411 receive three free text messages per week throughout pregnancy and baby’s first year. The interactive messages are personalized to the mother’s due date or baby’s birth date. Text4baby messages now contain additional information, mobile webpages, videos, appointment and immunization reminders, and more requests for participant feedback.
