Here's a quick post about a very simple but potentially powerful mobile service I recently heard about at the Forum Oxford Technology conference: Text4Baby, a service in the US for pregant mothers, sends SMS messages each week during and after their pregnancy with tips and advice on what should be happening at around this time of the pregnancy and tips concerning the mother's and baby's health. A great service for something that doesn't come with a manual as someone noted during the conference. While this is an innitiative in the US, I wonder if there are similar ideas in other countries!? If you know, please leave a comment.

  1. Hi,

    I have this as a project application for Android. The user would input the pregnancy start date, and the phone would send notifications about the state of the pregnancy and the actions she needs to take (see a doctor, what should she eat, the size of the baby, etc.)

    I just don’t have the time I wish I could spend on this…
