    Hell yes I would. Your primary care physician’s practice may be too big, and when you want answers, you NEED answers to ease your mind. Having that extra availability will ease a lot of that stress, and the waiting. 

    I’ve been in that seat before. While my story did not turn out well because of medical issues, had I been able to see my pregnancy through to the end, the peace of mind would be totally worth it. Especially if it’s free. You may not anticipate a world of stress and hurt, but pregnancy isn’t always smooth and predictable.

    I’d do it. We have something similar, though not as involved through our insurance. Basically it’s just a nurse that calls and emails a few times a month to check up on how I’m doing and give advice. It would be much more involved if I lived in MN, where the company is headquartered.

    Do it! You would be surprised all of the questions you might have, and it will be easier to call someone 11 times per day that you never have to see to ask questions about poop, than feeling like you’re bothering your pediatrician.

    Yes, I would do it. For all the reasons pps said, I would definitely do it. You’ll have so many questions, and I think the post partum follow up could be really beneficial.

    It does seem a bit redundant but if it is free, why not have it available!

    We have something like that too, but as an incentive if we participate are hospital co-pay ($300) is waived so it is a no brainer to sign up.  It’s been helpful so far and as a welcome gift they sent us a copy of the book Pregnacy Week by Week which I planned on buyting anyway.  You never know what free things you will get so I say it’s worth it!

    I definitely would! Just an extra person in your corner helping to monitor your pregnancy and help you should any questions arise! We also have a maternity management program where I work and are incented our hospital copay to enroll in it.

    I am suspicious of programs that involve my health insurance company interfering with my care.  I don’t believe our interests are aligned.  I am especially suspicious in cases where they give you a credit to participate.  Insurance companies don’t make decisions out of the goodness of their hearts.  So, I generally opt out of programs such as this.
