To build on the "Your fetus just texted you" inspiration, I just wanted to show what already does that is similar. It lets you know what is happening on a weekly basis as well as what you can expect to happen that week. This is one way to educate expectant mothers with mobile technology.

When my wife was pregnant, she LOVED these emails. She liked knowing what was happening and what she could expect. She also felt comforted by learning that she was normal when feeling sick or restless etc.

For this challenge we would want emails/texts to give more medical/nutritional info to the mothers, and advice for complications that may arise.
