Healthchoice and the Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies Maternal Education and Breastfeeding Education Center offer an exceptional benefit to all Healthchoice members who are currently pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant.
Baby Phases, part of the Healthy U initiative, provides expectant team members and their dependents with the education and support needed as they prepare for the arrival of their baby.
The Baby Phases program also offers financial incentives for joining and completing the required program. Requirements include attending the following childbirth education classes:
- “Preparing for a Healthy Baby” is scheduled for our preconception members and those in their first trimester of pregnancy. Topics of discussion include pregnancy as wellness, protecting your unborn child, and coping with the physical discomforts of early pregnancy.
- “The Baby Inside You” is scheduled during the second trimester. Topics of discussion include relaxation techniques, preterm labor recognition, sexuality during pregnancy, planning for birth, nutrition and exercise, and infant care issues.
- Finally, in the third trimester, participants will take “Preparation for Labor & Birth.” This class provides the mother and coach with information about labor and delivery, birthing options, pain relief, Cesarean birth and recovery.
Baby Phases Program Financial Benefits
Team member incentives are based on enrollment date and completion of the program. Enrollment can begin as early as one year prior to becoming pregnant, up until the 28th week of pregnancy. The earlier the enrollment, the greater the financial benefit.
