CaringStart® Maternity Program

You want the best for your baby – including experienced advice and support. Our CaringStart nurses are specially trained in taking care of moms-to-be, and they want to join your team.

We automatically enroll you in our program once we know you’re expecting. It’s part of your benefits.

You can reach our nurses at 1-888-416-3025, Monday to Friday, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern Time and 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Central Time. Their help doesn’t take the place of your provider’s advice. We’ll be as involved as you want us to be. If you want to leave the program, just let us know.

Here’s What We Can Do:

  • Offer personal, one-on-one support
  • Go over your health history to spot any health issues
  • Develop a plan of care just for you – with input from your provider and you
  • Work with your provider to make sure you get the quality care you need
  • Help your pregnancy provider work with your other providers
  • Provide education and support to make healthy choices
  • Track your progress
  • Put you in touch with agencies that provide other services
  • Celebrate the birth of your child
