The Rose Medical Center Rose Babies Prenatal Plus program offers eligible pregnant mothers additional support to empower them to have a healthy pregnancy, healthy baby and healthy life.

The program aims to improve birth outcomes by reducing the number of low birth weight infants among Medicaid-eligible women in Colorado. A low birth weight infant weighs less than 5 pounds, 8 ounces or 2500 grams.

The Prenatal Plus team

Our team works together to create a specialized plan for each patient. This plan supports mom throughout her pregnancy and into her first few months after delivery. Our team includes:

  • A "case manager" who can give you referrals in the community for financial help, parenting classes, medical benefits, and housing information.
  • A registered dietitian who will help you with weight gain goals and diet during your pregnancy.
  • A counselor who can talk to you about any personal issues you may have.
