The primary objective of the prenatal care coordination program of HCCCC is to decrease infant mortality and low birth-weight infants by providing coordination of care from inception of pregnancy to a year after baby is born.
Our care begins with getting women to the doctor all important 1st trimester by getting her signed up for any available insurance plan. follow up through the pregnancy includes eliminating smoking if that is a factor, encouragement to attend pre-natal classes provided by St. Vincent Frankfort Hospital, attending a breast feeding class as well as a Safe Sleep for Baby program. we provide incentives along the way and a one on one community approach. Homes will be visited in the second trimester and a month after baby is born.
These services are designed for all pregnant women and their families we are intentional about reaching those individuals with low incomes and those individuals who are high risk. this program is a partnership of HCCCC, St. Vincent Frankfort Hospital, St. Vincent Health, Purdue Extension Service and IDSH Maternal and Child Division.
