Pregnancy Support

Preparing to have a baby is an exciting and joyful experience, but pregnancy can also be challenging. That’s why we want to make sure that you stay healthy and get the support and resources you need.

HMSA Pregnancy Support Program

To help you have a healthy pregnancy, the HMSA Pregnancy Support Program pairs you with your own maternity nurse who'll provide personalized education and counseling over the phone. Nurse support doesn’t replace the care you receive from your ob-gyn, but provides additional services to complement your regular prenatal care.

This program is voluntary and available at no cost to HMSA members.

You’ll receive:

  • Support from a maternity nurse as a complement to the care you receive from your ob-gyn.
  • Referrals to trustworthy resources and services.
  • Help with your doctor’s instructions and answers to questions about care.
  • Additional postpartum support during the first two months after delivery.
  • A copy of Your Pregnancy and Childbirth: Month to Month, written by women’s health experts and published by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.

Adding your newborn to your plan

For most HMSA plans, you must enroll your newborn within 31 days of birth. (Some plans may allow up to 60 days.) If you miss the deadline, your baby won’t have insurance until the next enrollment period.

If you get your insurance plan at work, talk to your employer about adding your baby to your plan.
