Health Plus Supports Healthy Pregnancies!

VU VUMC

hpHealthPlusSupportsHealthyPregnancies​Health Plus offers Babies & You, a prenatal health promotion program for faculty/staff, spouses, and dependents. The program encourages early and consistent prenatal care and provides monthly educational opportunities on topics like nutrition, coping with the discomforts of pregnancy, newborn care, choosing a pediatrician, and more. These lessons are led by Vanderbilt nurse midwives, pediatricians, lactation consultants, and other experts. Babies & You offers an incentive to eligible participants registering in the first trimester of pregnancy.

Following the birth of a baby, faculty/staff, spouses, and dependents are also eligible to receive a home visit by a registered nurse from Nurses for Newborns of Tennessee if they need additional support. Visiting nurses are trained in early postpartum care for both mother and infant and touch on topics including breast feeding instruction and encouragement, CPR and choking instructions, and basic baby care instruction.

Having a healthy pregnancy is one of the best ways to promote a healthy birth. For more information about the program and how it can benefit you, visit the Babies & You website or contact Health Plus.
