Below you will find resources, apps and links that I have found to be helpful. Remember...each pregnancy is different so not all of these work for everyone. Find your favorites and share!


Medicaid Health Insurance
For those women without private insurance who need access to prenatal care, there are options.
Texas Medicaid Program is available to those who qualify by virtue of their income, residency, and pregnancy status.
CHIP Perinatal provides prenatal care for those mothers who do are not eligible for Medicaid due to their income or residency status.
In addition, the Texas Health and Human Services Commission offers the
Title V Maternal & Child Health Fee-For-Service so uninsured mothers can receive prenatal care through participating contractors if they meet certain income criteria.
Texas Women’s Health Program provides low-income women with family planning exams, related health screenings and contraception through Texas Medicaid.
