MICA's Maternal Health program can help support you during and after your pregnancy with services like prenatal education, social support, dental assistance, and nutritional guidance. Working in conjunction with regular doctor visits and prenatal care, the Maternal Health nurses can help you address barriers that affect your child and ensure you are informed about healthy choices for you and your baby.
We will provide you information about what to expect during your pregnancy, including how to deal with physical and emotional changes and advice to prepare for the arrival of your new baby. We can aid you in organizing your prenatal care by providing vitamins and helping you locate health care providers. Finally, we can provide you with diet, nutrition, and dental assistance so you have the best chance of a healthy pregnancy.
The Maternal Health program is free to women who qualify for WIC or who have Medicaid (Title XIX) insurance.
