Pregnancy Care Management is a statewide program in N.C. promoting healthy mothers and healthy babies. This program provides care management services by a social worker or nurse for high risk women during pregnancy and for two months after delivery.  Some of the risk criteria for receiving care management services are as follows:

  • History of pre-term birth
  • History of low birth weights
  • Multiple gestations
  • Fetal complications
  • Chronic conditions that may complicate pregnancy
  • Tobacco use
  • Substance abuse
  • Missing more than 2 prenatal appointments

Your pregnancy care manager can assist you with the following:

  • Help you identify your needs and make a plan to address them
  • Work closely with you and your doctor to understand your needs
  • Help arrange transportation to medical appointments, if needed
  • Help you manage any medicines that you might have
  • Work hand in hand with you to help you have a healthy baby
Our pregnancy care managers can also assist you if you are currently receiving OB services outside of Catawba County, as long as you are a resident of Catawba County and meet the risk criteria and other eligibility requirements.
