Interior Health is now offering a prenatal education program by cellphone.
The free program is called 'SmartMom.'
Coordinator Nancy Delgado says pregnant women will receive text messages that help guide them through their pregnancy.
The idea is to see more woman taking classes because as it sits she iridates only 32% of Canadian women do.
"And, we do know that number can be even less in our rural or remote communities. So, we are now able to offer consistent, evidence-based prenatal education for mom's to be across Interior Health."
Delgado says roughly 6,000 women give birth each year within the Interior Health Authority.
Woman can sign up for the program by texting "INTERIOR" to the phone number 1-2-3-2-3.
