This program focuses on preventing low–birth weight infants for women considered at high risk for pre-term births. We screen and assess women to determine their program eligibility.
Women do not need to be a VNA Health Care patient to participate in Better Birth Outcomes. Through the program, a registered nurse provides a home visit once each trimester to help the patient develop and implement a care plan.
Services include referrals for medical and social services, arrangement for transportation to health care, support services and pregnancy-related appointments, and care coordination.
To make a referral to VNA’s Better Birth Outcomes program, call (630) 482-8181.
