During Your Pregnancy
Let us know when you’re pregnant. You can get many benefits while you're pregnant or just had a baby, such as a breast pump, breastfeeding services, maternity care and midwife services.
Pregnant members who attend two prenatal visits can get a $25 supermarket gift card. You can put the gift card toward the purchase of a child’s car seat.
Who will deliver your baby?
Choose this provider 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 provider online. You can also call us at 866.738.4116 (TTY: 711). We’re open Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. We can help you find a doctor.
After you choose your pregnancy care provider, keep all of your appointments, even if you feel fine. Be sure to ask questions.
How to stay healthy during pregnancy:
