Prenatal Plus Promotes Healthy Babies
More than 2,500 women have participated in the program since 1995. Those identified as being at increased risk for delivering premature or low birth-weight babies receive one-on-one attention from a BCBSND case manager. Case managers will answer your questions, help you develop healthy diet and lifestyle behaviors that will benefit your baby and refer you back to your medical provider whenever you need medical assistance.
