Maternal Health Program from the Hyde County Health Department
The Maternal Health program provides comprehensive prenatal care for pregnant women from conception until the pregnancy is full-term (around 40 weeks). After 40 weeks gestation (if patient has not already delivered), patients are transferred to an obstetrician for management.
Maternal Health Services Include:
- Comprehensive prenatal care
- On-site laboratory testing
- Client education and counseling
- Referrals as appropriate
- Postpartum care
- Case management
- Breastfeeding Education and Support
The first appointment is usually scheduled around 8 weeks gestation with monthly visits until 30 weeks. After 30 weeks, appointments are every other week, then every week until 36 weeks. Postpartum visits are usually scheduled 4-6 weeks after delivery.
To schedule an appointment, please contact the front desk at (252) 926-4399.
Accepted forms of payment include Medicaid, Medicare, and Private Insurances. Patients without insurance may qualify for Medicaid for Pregnant Women. Services may also be available at a reduced rate for self-pay patients according to a sliding scale.
