Pregnancy Care Management (OBCM)

Pregnancy Care Management is a statewide program in North Carolina promoting healthy mothers and healthy babies. This program provides care management services by a social worker or registered nurse for high risk women during pregnancy and for two months after delivery. The goal of this program is to ensure healthy pregnancies and health babies.

How Does it Work?
If you have certain conditions you may qualify for Pregnancy Care Management services. Some examples include:

  • History of pre-term birth
  • History of low birth weights
  • Multiple gestations
  • Fetal complications
  • Chronic conditions that may complicate pregnancy
  • Unsafe living environment
  • Tobacco or substance abuse
  • Physician request for care management assessment
  •  

Your care manager will work closely with you and your prenatal care provider to meet your needs during your pregnancy. Your care manager can talk with you on the phone, meet you at your prenatal visits, or meet you at your home or at any other location.  

Your Pregnancy Care Manager Can Assist you by: 

  • Going over your prenatal care provider's plan for a health pregnancy
  • Helping you manage any medicines that you may be taking
  • Helping arrange transportation to medical appointments, if needed
  • Referring you to other programs like childbirth or breastfeeding education classes, family planning, and  to the WIC program
  • Answering your questions
