About Us

The Maternity Case Management (MCM) Program is an education and support program for women with social or health concerns during pregnancy and after the birth of their child.

The Maternity Case Management Program is part of the Maternal and Child Health Section in the Center for Prevention and Health Promotion.

Maternity Case Managers (MCMs) are nurses, social workers and other professionals trained to help pregnant women who have situations in their lives that could lead to problems with their pregnancies or childbirth.  

MCMs conduct prenatal and postpartum (after the baby is born) visits with their client, usually in the client's home. They visit the home and determine safety, nutrition status, emotional needs and relationship support, and provide education, counseling and referral as needed.

MCMs help clients set goals for making healthy lifestyle choices and fostering personal growth. MCMs identify pregnancy problems or illnesses which the woman may have had in the past and might require immediate referral to health care. They offer drug and alcohol referral services, and offer the "5As" as brief interventions to help pregnant women quit using tobacco. Pregnant women are eligible for MCM services who have identifiable risk factors, use alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs.

MCM services are covered by the Oregon Health Plan (OHP) for women who have incomes up to 185% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL). To ask about getting services, contact your local county health department.

Goals
Lower risks for the woman and her baby and make sure she gets prenatal care by a health care provider such as a doctor, nurse practitioner, or midwife.
