Prenatal Program

Blue Shield of California's Prenatal Education Program guides expectant parents from the first trimester to postnatal care and offers practical advice and useful information.

The program includes your choice of one of three best-selling pregnancy and parenting books and a Prenatal Guide filled with practical advice on what to expect from the first trimester through birth and the toddler years.

You will also get information on our text4babySM* service that provides free text messages three times a week with information to help you through your pregnancy and baby's first year. Some materials are also available in Spanish.

To enroll, just call 1-877-371-1511.

Participation is always optional, and your information is held in strict confidence.

For additional support during pregnancy, County of Orange PPO participants also have access to a dedicated Health Advocate team of registered nurses. This team can provide you with additional support, including:

  • Questions you should ask your prenatal doctor during your next appointment
  • Answers about treatment options, hospitalization, or other issues during pregnancy

Visit Health Advocate for more information.
