Maternal and child health

WellFirst Health’s Care Management department offers outreach and education to pregnant women enrolled in our Strong Beginnings program, obstetric (OB) case management for high-risk pregnant women and pediatric case management for our youngest members with complex medical conditions.

Our team of nurses, social workers, and program outreach specialists can help you navigate the health care system, locate community resources and services, and coordinate care to ensure your, and your child’s, individual needs are met to achieve an optimal health outcome. Our certified lactation counselors can provide you with the support you need to be successful with breastfeeding and pumping. Case management begins with an assessment of your, or your child’s, needs to develop an individual care plan with personalized goals. 

Your OB case manager or program outreach specialist can help you:

  • choose a doctor for yourself and your child
  • receive support with any health concerns or chronic conditions you may have
  • make healthy changes – like quitting tobacco
  • care for yourself and your baby before and after birth
  • connect with local resources and find pregnancy education classes
  • get support with breastfeeding and find information about breast pumps
  • transition into the Well Child Program

Your pediatric case manager can help you:

  • understand your child’s medical condition, treatment, medications, and home health care needs
  • advocate for your child during the discharge planning process
  • coordinate outpatient care, specialty services, and community resources to manage chronic medical conditions and provide support for families
  • identify community resources that provide emotional support
  • understand your individual health care plan including how to maximize your benefits
  • get support with breastfeeding

Enrollment is voluntary. Sign up and one of our team members will contact you.
