A personalized maternity program with one-on-one support
Each pregnancy is different. So you can count on your care team for support at every step of your pregnancy. This program doesn’t replace your doctor’s advice. Your care team will:
- Review your health history to spot any issues
- Give you health tips by phone, text and email
- Help you, your doctor and your other health care providers work together
- Connect you to agencies that provide other services
- Give extra support if you’re high risk for an early delivery or you’re having problems
If you’re pregnant and haven’t connected with us yet, give us a call.

Prenatal visits can help ensure the health of you and your baby. How often you need to visit depends on your age, health and how your pregnancy is going. Follow your provider’s advice. Here’s the schedule of prenatal care for most moms-to-be:
- First three months: At least one visit that will include a full physical exam, screenings and tests
- Second three months: One visit a month with some tests as needed
- Final three months: Every two weeks from week 30 to 36, then at least every week until you give birth
Seeing your provider after you give birth is just as important. Call your provider right away if you have problems like heavy bleeding. You should visit up to three months after you leave the hospital. If you’re feeling a little down, you may have a serious condition called postpartum depression. But we can help.
Let us help schedule those visits. Contact us by email or phone.
