Services and Tools to Support Healthy Pregnancies

  • Instagram Icon White

In today’s world, many of life’s changes and occurrences have become, well, predictable. We Google, we search, and we have answers at our fingertips for nearly everything, and very little is left unknown. There are few human experiences that shake us anymore; exceptions include two of life’s biggest: pregnancy and childbirth.

These two experiences, along with the actual journey of parenthood, are what people deem something “you just have to go through” in order to completely understand. However, as unknown as it may be to some of us, it’s not something that needs to be navigated alone.

Health Plan of Nevada understands that life changes when you become a parent. Members of HPN have access to seasoned medical professionals who are there to provide support every step of the way, offering benefits, education, and digital tools to make the pregnancy experience the best it can be.

Prenatal Care

It all starts with prenatal care, or the care received throughout your pregnancy. Ensure that you see your doctor early and regularly in your pregnancy, as you’ll be more likely to have a healthy, safe birth. In doing so, you are also reducing the risk of going into labor prematurely.

Count the Kicks® App

Nothing kicks off parenthood more than, well, kicks! Starting at the third trimester, you’ll begin to feel baby kicks, and it’s important to count them. Counting kicks is a great way, in addition to prenatal visits, to monitor baby’s well-being. Recording your baby’s movements is important and can help prevent stillbirth. But with so much on your plate, it can be easily forgotten! So HPN partnered with Count the Kicks® to better guide you in the process. Download the Count the Kicks app from your app store and:

  • Track each movement (kicks, jabs, pokes and rolls) as one kick.
  • Count kicks every day – preferably at the same time, when your baby is most active, usually after you’ve had a snack or light meal.
  • Time how long it takes your baby to get to 10 movements.

After a few days, you will begin to see the average length of time it takes to get to 10.

Postpartum Care

You’ve had your beautiful baby. Now what? The postpartum period refers to the first couple of months after you give birth. During these weeks, you’ll bond with your baby and will have a post-delivery checkup with your doctor.

Adjusting to everyday life after the birth of a baby has its challenges, especially if you’re a new parent. Although it’s important to care for your baby, you also have to take care of yourself. Make sure you:

  • Get as much rest as possible
  • Follow your doctor’s instructions
  • Eat healthy meals
  • Schedule your postpartum care

A postpartum visit is the first step to being a healthy parent. HPN members who have questions about postpartum care or need help finding a doctor should call:

HPN Individual/Group members: 1-800-777-1840, TTY 711
