Prenatal Care and Services

There are many important benefits of having good prenatal care. With it, your maternity care team closely monitors your health and the baby’s health and development. Regular doctor visits and testing reduce the risk of complications. And you get the information you need to prepare for each stage of your pregnancy, including labor and delivery.

If you choose the 32BJ Maternity Program, you’ll still get the same high-quality prenatal benefits offered to all 32BJ Health Fund members and dependents.
