Strong Start Program
The Strong Start program allows women to start their prenatal care early while their Medicaid application is being processed. Holy Family will provide prenatal care at no charge while your Medicaid is pending. This includes the initial OB interview with the nurse, physical examination, ultrasound, and follow-up visits. If you are denied for Medicaid, you will have to find a new provider but will NOT be billed for the care you have already received. (You may still be responsible for bills from outside labs.) Learn more about if you might be eligible for Health Insurance coverage under Medicaid.
Sweet Dreams Program
Through our Sweet Dreams program, patients can earn a new crib and mattress. In order to earn the crib, patients must attend classes through Holy Family. The class topics include education on nutrition, breastfeeding, infant care and more. It’s easy to sign up! Just call Holy Family Prenatal Care at 937-228-4492 or ask at the front desk for more details. You must be a Holy Family Prenatal Care patient to participate. Not yet a patient?
