It’s Free: Our messages are free. Depending on your phone plan, standard message and data rates may apply.
About the Study
Many people in Canada aren't receiving prenatal education. SmartMom was developed to fill this gap. The SmartMom team are undertaking a study to determine if those who receive the SmartMom text message program have improved knowledge about healthy pregnancy and birth compared to those who are not in the SmartMom program. For this study, SmartMom is only available to those outside of British Columbia. The study is led by a group of senior university researchers across Canada led by Dr. Patricia Janssen, Professor in the UBC Faculty of Medicine.
