  • Text4baby helps new, expectant mothers

    I am a mom. It is the hardest and most rewarding job I could ever imagine. My first child was born when I was quite young, my second not far behind.
    I am one of the lucky moms. I have a wonderful family, a great pediatrician and supportive co-workers, who all gave me guidance during my pregnancy and in those early days of the kids’ lives.
    There are many moms in our state who have less help in the journey we call parenting.
    Some may not have role models as I do in my own mother and grandmothers. Some may not enjoy health-care or prenatal-care benefits.
