Programs and Information for Parents and Guardians

We have program for Blue Cross Complete members that help parents give their children a healthy start.

If you're a new or soon-to-be mom or dad, Blue Cross Complete can give you the resources, support and information you need during your pregnancy and after your baby is born.

Pregnancy program

Blue Cross Complete has a pregnancy program for soon-to-be parents. This program helps parents learn about the new baby, taking care of moms-to-be, eating right, and becoming a new mom or dad.

We send information about the program to your doctor. It’s important that moms-to-be make and keep appointments with their doctors and ask questions about their care.

Our health educators can help with additional prenatal education programs and resources. Call our outreach team at 1-888-288-1722 from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Maternal Infant Health Program

If you are pregnant, you may be able to get care through the Maternal Infant Health Program, or MIHP. These services may be provided by a social worker, a nurse, a nutritionist or other health care provider. Services may include rides to the doctor and classes about childbirth and parenting. The program helps you access social workers and other resources.

Visit our Find a Doctor page, the MIHP website or contact us to help you find an MIHP provider. You do not need a referral.

Childhood developmental screening

Children need regular well-child visits so their doctor can make sure they are healthy, growing and learning. Learn more about developmental screening for your child (PDF) from the Michigan Department of Community Health.
