Let us know when you’re pregnant so that we can help you take advantage of special benefits for members who are pregnant or who have recently had a baby. As a Tufts Health Together member, you get many covered benefits while you're pregnant, such as a free breast pump, breastfeeding, maternity care and midwife services.
If you haven't already, you need to choose the provider 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 find a provider online or call us at 888.257.1985 (TTY: 711), Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and we can help you find a provider.
After you choose your pregnancy care provider, make sure to keep all of your scheduled appointments, even if you feel fine. Your provider can monitor your and your baby’s progress, address pregnancy-related health issues and answer any questions you have.
