They polled 2,000 women on their personal experiences and opinions when it comes to the much-debated topic of motherhood and career.

I went to an industry event this week at the FCC and learned about a fascinating tool for pregnant women via a presentation by an old friend, who just happens to be the Vice President for Regulatory Affairs for the wireless industry trade organization, CTIA.
Text4Baby, an educational p;rogram of the National Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies Coalition(HMHB) is a FREE mobile information service designed to promote maternal and child health.
Women who sign up for the service by texting BAB (or Bebe for Spanish) to 511411 will receive free SMS text messages each week, timed to their due date or the baby’s date of birth.
It provides pregnant women and new moms with information they need to take care of their health and give their babies the best possible start in life
VERY COOL!!!! I am a big believer in it takes a village and with all of the neat apps available via i Phone that have obvious costs (iPhone, iPhone service, any download or monthly cost associated with the applications), sometimes people of modest means don’t have the same access.
Kudos to the brains and companies behind this effort!
