Thinking about having a baby?
There are steps you can take early on to have a healthy pregnancy – and a healthy baby, too.
Before you become pregnant, talk with your doctor about:
Navigating the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU)
If your baby is premature or has a serious health condition, they may have been admitted to the NICU. To support you, we have a NICU Case Management program. This program helps you to prepare yourself and your home for when your baby is released from the hospital. After your baby is home, our case managers continue to provide education and support to improve your baby’s health, prevent unnecessary hospital readmissions, and guide you to community resources if needed.
The MyPreemie app supports families with preemies.
Teens: Taking care of your health and planning for the future
You may have questions about sex, relationships, body changes, or birth control. When you get regular checkups, you can talk with your doctor. If you want to talk privately, ask your doctor if they can answer your questions without a parent in the room.
