During Your Pregnancy

Now that you're pregnant, let us know. We can help you use benefits for members who are pregnant or who have recently had a baby. As a Tufts Health RITogether member, you can get many services while you're pregnant, such as a breast pump, breastfeeding services, maternity care and midwife services.

Pregnant members who attend two prenatal care visits can get a $25 gift card to use toward a children’s car seat.

If you haven't already, you also need to pick the doctor who will deliver your baby. Choose this doctor as soon as possible so that he or she can take care of you and your baby during your pregnancy. You can choose any Tufts Health Plan obstetrician/gynecologist, family doctor or midwife who provides prenatal care. You can find a doctor online or call us at 866.738.4116 (TTY: 711), Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and we can help you find a doctor.

After you pick your pregnancy care doctor, make sure to keep all of your planned appointments, even if you feel fine. Be sure to ask questions during your pregnancy.
