UnitedHealthcare recognizes mothers’ hard work and sacrifices and provides new and expectant moms tools to help ensure their child’s healthy birth and early life. One such program is UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of Texas’ Baby Blocks, a free online program that rewards mothers for high quality care during their pregnancy and first two years of the child’s life.

Each milestone and physician appointment—from program enrollment to baby’s final visit—merits new rewards, including gift cards and maternity-related items such as teething rings, diaper bags and thermometers. Program members also receive alerts and updates from their maternity care team via text message or email.
