You and your baby’s health
during and after pregnancy

Quartz believes in healthy beginnings & healthy futures

There’s so much to learn about pregnancy and we’re here to help. From pregnancy planning and doula care to a variety of resources and support available up to and including the first 12 months of your child’s life, Quartz is here to help you feel at ease, educated, and empowered during this important health journey. 

Start with healthy beginnings

Do you think you may be pregnant? Wondering where to get started? Step confidently into a healthy beginning using the information below.

Get connected to care
Contact your primary care provider as soon as you know you’re pregnant. They can help you decide what medical care options might be right for you and your baby:

  • Obstetricians – Medical specialists who have special training in prenatal care, birth, and high-risk pregnancies
  • Midwives – Certified experts who can provide prenatal care, birth, and after-birth care for low-risk pregnancies

Use our Find a Doctor tool to find a primary care provider or pregnancy specialist near you. 

Once you establish care with medical experts, consider a doula for extra support. Doulas are trained, non-clinical professionals who provide education, support, and companionship from pregnancy through the first 12 months of your child’s life. Doula services through Quartz contracted providers are covered at no additional cost for eligible members.

Enroll today in our Healthy Beginnings program. Healthy Beginnings provides pregnant Quartz members with social and mental resources throughout pregnancy to help support physical well-being and mental resiliency. To enroll, call Quartz Care Management at (866) 884-4601. Once enrolled, a care coordinator can help you with your specific needs.

Focus on you and your baby's health

Pregnancy is here – how is it going? Do you need more support? Here are some resources to help along the way.

Virtual doula care
Get extra support with virtual doula care. Through video and text-based communications, you get unlimited support, education, and resources to help provide you and your baby with the healthiest experience possible. This includes check-in texts from a certified doula every 48 hours for continuous support.

Tests and vaccinations
There are various tests and vaccinations recommended throughout pregnancy and into the first year of your child’s life. We encourage you to follow any guidelines or recommendations suggested by your providers and medical experts.

Feeding your baby
Proper nutrition during your baby’s first year of life is important for growth and development. Whether it’s breastfeeding, formula feeding, or a combination of the two, there are a variety of options to ensure your baby is getting what they need to thrive. Find what works best for you and your baby.

Quartz covers most breast pumps in full and can help you get one by mail or at a durable medical equipment (DME) supplier prior to your delivery. To find an in-network DME supplier, search for DME suppliers or call Quartz Customer Success at (800) 362-3310. You can also ask your obstetrics nurse or doctor to send a breast pump order to an in-network supplier near you.

Plan for healthy futures

We understand post-pregnancy looks different for everyone, which is why we encourage you to always be aware of you and your baby’s health and healing.

Keeping you and your baby well
The body goes through a lot during any delivery situation, so it’s important to follow-up with your provider about your physical health. We’re also here to support your baby’s health with coverage including wellness visits, immunizations, and preventive vaccines.

Your mental health matters
Pregnancy, becoming a parent, and adjusting to a new norm is exciting, but it can be a lot, too. With Quartz mental well-being programs with AbleTo, you get quick access to mental health providers and resources for anytime, anywhere support.

Continued feeding support
Sometimes it can be tricky finding the right method to feed your baby. If you have any issues, be sure to contact your primary care provider or the providers at the hospital where you had your baby – they can help, and most hospitals have 24/7 helplines. You can also call Quartz Care Management at (866) 884-4601 to connect with a Certified Lactation Counselor, if needed.

Post-pregnancy doula care
Doula support continues after delivery. From helping you focus on your physical and emotional healing to aiding in newborn care, they continue to provide you with education and resources to help you both thrive. Lean on them – they are there to help!
