You have a lot going on- let Text4baby help you remember your upcoming appointments. Set up a text-based reminder for your doctor’s appointments for you or your baby. It’s easy- you can use the app or set up a reminder through your text messages.
Here’s how you can set up an appointment by text message:
- Text remind to 511411
- When asked, enter the appointment date with no spaces or words in MMDDYY format (e.g. 101215).
- You will then be asked to enter a short description of the appointment (e.g. Dr. Smith 9AM).
- You will receive two text reminders: the first reminder 3 days before and the second reminder the morning of your appointment.
