Settlement Health's Prenatal Program
During your Prenatal Orientation assessment visit, you will see the following people:
Prenatal Case Manager: will inform new prenatal patients about the services we offer, childbirth education classes, contraception needs, and other issues the patient may want to discuss.
Counselor: will provide you with HIV information. We are required to discuss this issue with all of our patients and offer testing as mandated by State regulations.
Medicaid Eligibility Specialist: will help you with insurance issues. If you have no insurance or your insurance only covers hospitalization, she will assist you in applying for Medicaid and will provide you with a list of document s to bring with you on your next visit.
Nurse: will check your blood pressure, weight, height, and date of last menstrual period. She will give you a TB test, if necessary, and draw your blood. You will be given prenatal vitamins. If you require additional tests or a sonogram the nurse will discuss this with you. If we find that your pregnancy is a complicated one, we will assist you in getting prenatal care at a high-risk clinic in a hospital.
Your next appointment will be with the Nurse Midwife.
Nurse Midwife will obtain your medical history, give you the results of your blood test, your prenatal card, WIC program form and physical prenatal exam.
