Are you pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant? The Baby Partners maternity program helps soon-to-be moms from prenatal to post-delivery care.
Baby Partners is a voluntary program offered to all Health Partners Plans members. Our Baby Partners team can help you learn more about how your baby develops and the care you both need along the way. When you join Baby Partners, you’ll be paired with a care coordinator who will help you throughout your pregnancy and after you give birth to your child.
Your Baby Partners care coordinator can connect you with local resources and services, such as food, important items for your baby (like diapers, car seats and cribs), and child care. If you are experiencing depression or sadness, Baby Partners can get you the help you need.
Baby Partners is a voluntary program, and you can opt out at any time. Opting out does not affect your health care benefits. Call the Baby Partners team at 1-866-500-4571 (TTY 1-877-454-8477) or 215-991-4182 to learn more about how we can help you and your baby.

Rolling over, taking a first step and playing peek-a-boo are exciting times in an infant’s life. These are examples of developmental milestones. Your child’s early years are so very important. Tracking how your little one plays, learns, speaks, acts and moves helps you support their development. Download the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) free Milestone Tracker app to find fun and easy activities for each age.
The CDC Milestone Tracker app provides:
- Milestone checklists for ages 2 months through 5 years.
- Photos and videos to help you learn more about milestones.
- Tips and activities to support development.
- And much more!
You can always speak to your child’s doctor if you have any questions or concerns about your child’s development.
