OB Navigator

The goal of this program is to identify women early in their pregnancies and connect them with an OB navigator – a home visitor who provides personalized guidance and support to a woman during her pregnancy and at least the first six to 12 months after her baby’s birth. To begin that effort, the program is working to connect pregnant women who are covered by Medicaid in our highest-risk areas to services in their communities. This program went live in La Porte County in June 2020.
