3 messages per week about your baby and pregnancy. It's a one-way service so you can't write back, but it's timed with your due date.

great idea! several friends have subscribed to a site that notifies them what size fruit or vegetable their baby is during the course of their pregnancy. Maybe there's an easy way to turn this into an MMS (multimedia message service) to help the mother understand how their baby is developing, and let them share that with friends and family more easily.
