The Sentara Mother/Baby Care Program is designed to decrease infant mortality rates and prematurity. All-inclusive services are offered for eligible mothers during pregnancy and for 60 days after delivery. Babies are eligible until they are two years old. Services are covered by Optima Family Care, Virginia Premier and Virginia Medicaid.

The program is a collaborative effort between the referring physician; the program director; nurses specialized in OB, pediatrics and community health; social workers trained in recognizing psychosocial issues and referring to appropriate community resources; and a certified lactation consultant.

The program also provides:
