HobNobMurfreesboro Announces New E-mail Newsletter for New Mothers Provided by Middle Tennessee Medical Center

Murfreesboro, TN, September 04, 2009 --(PR.com)-- HobNobMurfreesboro.com has recently partnered up with the Middle Tennessee Medical Center which is set to launch in October of 2010. This partnership is designed to help promote the awareness of the medical community and its advances in Murfreesboro, TN.

Expectant parents are faced with a bewildering range of pregnancy and parenting information, from books and magazines to the well-meaning advice of family and friends. To help parents sort it all out, Middle Tennessee Medical Center has launched the MTMC weekly parenting e-mail as a resource to guide them through their pregnancy and the first year of their baby’s life.

The free, weekly e-mail newsletter offers the latest research and information in child development, health and learning and is customized based on their baby’s due date. Parents can enroll via a simple, online sign up process and begin receiving e-mails messages at seven weeks gestation. During pregnancy, the hospital’s messages include week-by-week information on fetal development and wellness tips. After the baby is born, the newsletter switches focus to the baby’s first year with child development information, practical tips on baby care and other topics of interest to new parents.

“MTMC has been the hospital of choice for thousands of expectant parents,” said Gordon B. Ferguson, MTMC president and CEO. “Our goal is to provide them the best possible patient experience and that extends beyond their stay at the hospital. We believe patients will appreciate our ability to support them in an innovative way, personalized by the hospital they have chosen.”

Parents can receive emails up until their child’s third birthday. The service also includes a breastfeeding module. Phase I of the service – pregnancy through the first year of infancy – is available in Spanish.

Parents can sign up for the email service online at www.mtmc.org/parents or when taking childbirth classes or a facility tour at MTMC. Parents can opt out at any time.

MTMC and Baptist Hospital, located in Nashville, Tenn. and a member of Saint Thomas Health Services, are both offering the new service to patients. Together, the hospitals deliver nearly 10,000 babies each year.
