  • this from the website:

    User FAQs


    You say that this service is free. Is that really true?
    Yes. Thanks to the support of CTIA - The Wireless Foundation and participating wireless service providers, all messages you receive from text4baby are free! Even if you don’t have a text messaging plan, you can get these messages for free. If you have limited texting per month, text4baby won’t take away from your total amount of messages.


    How many messages will I receive in a week?
    If you are pregnant, you will receive one message per day for the first six days with general information. After that, you will receive three messages a week throughout your pregnancy. If you have a new baby, you will receive three messages per week up until your child’s first birthday. If you start using text4baby while you are pregnant, it will automatically continue after you give birth

    This has been promoted as a free service but I think I may have been charged by my carrier. What should I do?
    Thanks to the support of CTIA - The Wireless Foundation and participating wireless service providers, all messages you receive from text4baby are free. If you suspect you may have been charged for messages to and from the service please call your wireless provider right away. They will give you a refund if you have been charged for the service by mistake
