AlaHealth expands maternity services in Franklin and Lawrence counties

MONTGOMERY -  AlaHealth is proud to expand our maternity services with the Nurse-Family Partnership program to help address health equity in Alabama.  With their own Nurse-Family Partnership personal nurse, expectant mothers will get the support, advice and resources needed during their pregnancy and when their baby arrives.

Specially educated nurses work closely with first-time expectant mothers, starting early in the pregnancy and continuing through the child’s second birthday. The program’s mission is to positively transform the lives of vulnerable babies, mothers and families.

“We care about Alabamians and want to improve the healthcare of our state’s most at-risk populations,” said Presley Rebman, executive director of AlaHealth. “The recent addition of this service being covered by the Alabama Medicaid Agency enabled us to expand our services. We are honored to offer this program that gives new mothers peace of mind during their pregnancy journey while helping improve maternal and early childhood outcomes in our state.”

This free program is now available to first-time expectant mothers who are pregnant 28 weeks or less and who meet the income eligibility requirements. It is offered in seven Alabama counties, including Colbert, Franklin, Lauderdale, Lawrence, Limestone, Madison and Morgan.
