Before You Are Pregnant
If you are thinking about having a baby, you can do some things now to be as healthy as possible before getting pregnant. These actions can limit problems during pregnancy:
- Make an appointment to see your PCP
- Talk with your PCP about healthy eating
- Stop smoking now
- Take folic acid daily
- Don’t drink alcohol or use illegal drugs
While You Are Pregnant
See a provider as soon as you know you are pregnant. You can find a provider in the CareSource PASSE network at findadoctor.CareSource.com. You can also call your care coordinator or call Member Services. Seeing your provider early and regularly during your pregnancy can spot and prevent problems before they happen.
After You Have Your Baby
Schedule a visit with your provider 3-6 weeks after you have your baby. They can make sure your body is recovering, check on your mental health, and answer any questions you might have.
