This program was implemented in 2020 to assist women with resources and help cover the cost of prenatal care and delivery. The average cost per woman is about $4700.00. We anticipate there are 3 - 5 women or more each year who need this help. Without assistance, these women ultimately arrive at our ER with no prior care to deliver a baby and with no money to pay.

Our Navigator (Desiree Lewis) connects with women before, during and after the birth of a child and helps them with education on caring for themselves and their baby. The program also has classes for fathers to help them understand how to care for a newborn.
