The Healthy Pregnancy Program is component of DHA’s Mississippi Medicaid Population Health Demonstration Project that aims to reduce and prevent preterm births. Healthy Pregnancy Coaches (HPC) work with program participants to ensure positive health outcomes for mothers and their babies by providing education, coordinating services with provider clinics, and identifying support services. HPCs also conduct monthly home visits and quarterly group meetings with participants and continue working with mothers for six months post-partum to improve birth outcomes and spacing.
How to Enroll:
All pregnant Medicaid beneficiaries are eligible for this program. Healthy Pregnancy coaches will identify potential participants and walk them through the enrollment process with all necessary documentation and initial assessments. Past participants, and anyone who knows someone who may be interested, can also refer potential participants to the program.
