Pregnancy - Bright Start®

AmeriHealth Caritas Pennsylvania (PA) Community HealthChoices (CHC) has a special program for pregnant Participants called Bright Start. We want to help you have a healthy pregnancy.

Bright Start

With the Bright Start program, we can:

  • Help you sign up for childbirth and other health information classes.
  • Help you choose a doctor who is right for you.
  • Give you information on prenatal vitamins and eating right; your body needs extra vitamins, like folic acid (a B vitamin), when you are pregnant.
  • Work with your provider and dentist to make sure you get the care you need; having healthy teeth and gums is very important during pregnancy.
  • Give you information and resources to help you have a safe pregnancy and a healthy baby.

To join Bright Start, please call 1-877-364-6797.

For tips and information on pregnancy, refer to these online resources:

Sometimes women feel down or sad after having a baby.

This is normal. Please ask yourself these two questions:

  • During the past month, have I often felt down, depressed, or hopeless?
  • During the past month, have I had little interest or pleasure in doing things?

If you answered "yes" to one or both of these questions, please call our Bright Start department at our toll free number, 1-877-364-6797.
