Research shows that mothers-to-be who receive prenatal care throughout their pregnancy are less likely to have premature or low birthweight babies, and are less likely to encounter serious health problems related to their pregnancy.
The Healthy Baby Network is a community outreach program that includes a unique network of local healthcare providers, retailers, government agencies, schools and community organizations that work together to coordinate prenatal care, education and social services for pregnant women. The program is managed by the University of Chicago Medicine Ingalls Memorial, which has more than 85 years of experience delivering high-quality healthcare and community services.
The Healthy Baby Network does not charge a fee to use its services. Instead, each patient is assessed for programs that provide medical, nutritional or financial assistance. Patients who are qualified to receive public assistance are enrolled in the appropriate program(s) with the help of the program's dedicated coordinator.
