Your Key to a Healthy Pregnancy

Looking for information you can trust during pregnancy and your baby’s first year?

The Food and Drug Administration’s Office of Women’s Health and text4baby have teamed up to help moms-to-be find reliable health resources for their pregnancy.

Text4baby is the first free mobile information service designed to promote maternal and child health through text messaging.  Women who text “BABY” (or “BEBE” for Spanish) to 511411 receive three free text messages a week, timed to their due date or their baby’s birth date, through pregnancy and up until the baby’s first birthday.

The FDA also provides tips on medicines, food safety, breast pumps and more for expectant moms.

Learn more about important conversations you should be having with your doctor, nurse or pharmacist to increase the safety of your pregnancy by watching the video Resources for You and Your Baby.

If you have questions about having a healthy pregnancy, you can ask experts live during a Twitter chat, Thursday from 1 to 2 p.m. To participate use the hashtag #pregchat.
