Prenatal Case Management

Our Program

The Prenatal Case Management program is part of the Nest Partnership with the Springfield-Greene County Health Department. This program seeks to encourage healthy behavior for eligible expectant mothers in order to deliver healthy babies. 

A nurse case manager will make home visits every month during the pregnancy and then every month for 2 months after the baby is born. During the visit, we will:

-Weigh mom
-Record mom's blood pressure
-Connect mom and family to resources
-Provide education about healthy behavior
-Monitor mom's health status 





Our nurse helped me even when the baby came home, with nursing and other things. She was wonderful!
