A new program from Northern Health now allows women to be a text or a phone call away for advice on their pregnancy.
SmartMom, a free program for women and their families will send text messages to guide women through each week of pregnancy, ensuring that women get the right information and resources at the right time.
Dr. Patricia Janssen says the overall goal of the SmartMom project is to “support and guide women, ensuring they receive the right information and resources at the right time.”
Messages will include links to websites, videos on pregnancy topics, options for screening and preparation for labour.
Since launching, SmartMom has released a statement showing a large amount of positive feedback.
Individuals can join in the program by either texting “SmartMom” to 12323 or visit www.smartmomcanada.ca
