Mother’s Day is an ideal time for expectant mothers to become aware of the technology UnitedHealthcare has designed to help pregnant women take steps toward a healthier pregnancy and delivery.
The UnitedHealthcare Healthy Pregnancy mobile app is an interactive program that provides expectant women with personalized content and 24/7 nurse support during pregnancy and after delivery. The app is available to people enrolled in most UnitedHealthcare employer-sponsored plans. Employers can offer it to their employees at no additional cost as part of their benefit plan.
People eligible for the UnitedHealthcare Healthy Pregnancy program can download the app onto their iPhone® or Android® devices. The app offers personalized features and pregnancy-related information, while integrating with UnitedHealthcare’s maternity care platform as another way to connect with maternity nurse support throughout the prenatal and postnatal phases.
The app provides important resources for expectant parents, including the ability to:
- connect with a registered nurse 24/7 for support and information, access health care cost estimates and plan benefit information;
- monitor and track weight, set reminders to take vitamins, track appointments and events;
- take a health assessment and discuss the results with a nurse; and
- receive customized weekly updates based on the baby’s gestational age, search for information about pregnancy symptoms and concerns and use a “kick counter” to track the baby’s movements.
