Start Smart for Your Baby®

With a range of educational resources and support for parents-to-be, the Start Smart for Your Baby program offers education and resources as well as case management for members with high-risk pregnancies. Members can also enroll in Text4baby, a texting program based on an individual's due date, providing information about what to expect during pregnancy and the postpartum period, as well as tips on new baby care.

Through this program, we provide the following:

  • Information about pregnancy and newborn care.
  • Assistance finding community resources to help you get things you need during your pregnancy and after your baby is born, including things like food, cribs, housing and clothing.
  • Breastfeeding support and resources.
  • Professional medical staff who work with you and your doctor and nurses if you have a more difficult pregnancy.
  • Resources if you are feeling down during or after your pregnancy.
  • Methods to help you quit smoking, alcohol or drugs.

Get the best care possible for you and your baby by filling out the Notice of Pregnancy Form.
