Pregnancy Care Management

The Brunswick County Pregnancy Care Management Program is designed to improve birth outcomes and improve the quality of pregnancy care given to Medicaid recipients, decrease the number of C-sections and increase birth weights, increase the number of full term births, and lower unnecessary Medicaid spending by decreasing the number of hospital admissions, readmissions, and emergency department visits.  Assist pregnant women in finding services to meet their needs during pregnancy.  The Pregnancy Care Managers are highly-skilled social workers who help women during pregnancy and up to 2 months after the birth of her child, and can help the mother get WIC (nutritional assistance for pregnant women and women with infant children), food stamps, Medicaid, support and counseling, and parenting education.
