A great guy with an insightful idea has started a program in Lagos called Mom's Connect. Its quite an impressive programme that helps pregnant women and nursing mothers get healthcare information and questions answered by sending a text to a specified number. What makes this idea amazing is that, pregnant women in villages and small towns (who all have phones, trust me) but dont always have access to a doctor who can answer their questions and dispel pregnancy myths, can through Mom's Connect get all the information they need!
Its a new project and in a conversation with the progenitor, he is still working out the kinks.
