Read & Share | JULY EDITION
Content from Bright by Three

Bright by Text currently delivers free learning games, parenting tips, and resources to nearly 10,000 Colorado parents and caregivers of children under 5, and will now reach expectant parents as well!

“There is a lot of information out there for expectant mothers, but it can be hard to know which sources to trust,” said Bright by Three President and CEO Jean McSpadden. “We want parents to have the best research-based information right at their fingertips.”

The prenatal messages will provide expectant parents with tips, information, and resources about mental and physical health during pregnancy, helping baby develop, preparing for baby, labor and delivery, and more. Just like with the rest of the Bright by Text messages, each message directs to a landing page with additional information and further resources.

“It’s really exciting to have a service like this as a first time parent! There is a ton of information out there, but Bright by Text gives you simple, easy to use, and helpful information that has scientific backing. They’ve done the information sorting for you, and it’s a huge relief for expectant parents,” said Derek, an expectant father and subscriber of Bright by Text.
