Our Free Prenatal Program

The goal of our Prenatal Program is to provide you and your family with information about pregnancy and childbirth to help you care for your baby, even before birth. The Prenatal Program provides access to the latest health information regarding pregnancy and childbirth. The program is unique in that it takes an active role to support, educate, nurture, and prepare participants for what to expect during pregnancy and in the weeks that follow.

Who's eligible for the Prenatal Program?

All members with medical coverage under a PacificSource group or individual health plan are eligible for the program at no charge. The program is completely confidential and participation is voluntary.

How do expectant mothers register?

Registration for the program is easy—just call the Prenatal Program toll-free at (888) 987-5805 or complete our online registration form. After you register, a Prenatal Nurse will contact you to complete your enrollment.

Once you are enrolled, a Prenatal Nurse will contact you again at 28 weeks and after delivery to see how you and the baby are doing. During these brief calls, usually five to ten minutes, our nurse will share prenatal information, as well as give you the opportunity to ask questions and address any concerns you have.  

In addition, participation materials will be sent directly to your home.

Remember: It is important to sign up for the program as soon as possible. The earlier in the pregnancy you register, the sooner benefits begin.

How does the program work?

A prenatal package is mailed to everyone who enrolls in the program. The kit includes:

  • A comprehensive book on pregnancy and prenatal care
  • Educational materials to help you take the best possible care of yourself during this important time
  • Contact information to reach a Prenatal Program nurse, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday

Throughout your pregnancy, a nurse is available from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, to answer any questions. Once the baby is born, you'll receive an additional package containing helpful parenting information.
