This is an exciting time in your life! The best thing you can do for your baby is to take care of yourself. First, call Member Services as soon as you know you're pregnant. A representative will direct you to Case Management to learn more about our maternity care program. Then, see your doctor. During prenatal care, your doctor will calculate a "due date" and check your baby's growth. Your doctor will also monitor your weight, blood pressure and overall health and comfort.
Remember, we're here to help. Call Member Services to learn more about the benefits of our maternity care program.
