Fidelis Care offers a special program called BabyCare to support the health of members during pregnancy. 

When members join BabyCare, a Fidelis Care Maternal Care Associate is assigned to help them every step of the way. The Maternal Care Associate has special training in prenatal care and is the person they can reach out to when they have questions or concerns about their pregnancy. The Maternal Care Associate can help members find programs, services, or resources they may need. The Maternal Care Associate may also follow up after the member’s doctor’s appointment, or call to see if there are any questions.

Who is eligible to join?

Any member who is pregnant can join BabyCare.
