Maternity Management

Education and Support for a Healthy Pregnancy

A Different Approach

The March of Dimes estimates that one out of eight babies born in the U.S. is born prematurely, and that these babies cost employers nearly fifteen times more than full-term babies in their first year of life. With that in mind, Arizona Foundation, in conjunction with American Health Holding, offers a Maternity Management program, which provides education and support to expectant mothers in order to reduce instances of complications and subsequent high claims costs.

The Maternity Nurse Specialists, on average, have 20 years of maternal and neonatal experience. They provide referred members with ongoing monitoring, assessment and care planning for both high- and low-risk pregnancies. Nurses regularly communicate with members and can increase the amount of contact depending on their needs. Women who are at the highest risks for complications in their pregnancy can be seamlessly transitioned to Maternity Case Management if needed.
