Pathways to a Healthy Pregnancy

Registered nurses provide care, support and education to Medicaid-eligible pregnant women. Pathways to a Healthy Pregnancy provides links to social services such as housing, transportation, WIC, quitting smoking and many others. The program also assists with medical services such as primary care medical homes for mothers and their families, mental health support and vision and dental appointments.

Our registered nurses work together, offering services at no cost to qualified participants. We meet clients on a monthly basis at their physician appointments or at our Family Navigator offices in Grosvenor West. The overall goal of the Pathways program is to provide women with support throughout pregnancy and the post-partum period. Addiction treatment support is offered to those who need it. Smoking cessation services are provided through the Baby & Me Tobacco Free program, with incentives. Safe sleep education and free Cribettes are provided through the Cribs for Kids program.

Family Navigators also provide education, resources and referrals about reproductive health and birth control options for women and teens.
