Future Moms

Future Moms, a wellness program from Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, is a program that can answer questions, help expecting parents make good choices and follow their health care provider's plan of care. Additionally, it can help women have a safe delivery and a healthy child.

Once pregnancy is confirmed, individuals can call Anthem toll-free at 800-828-5891 and a registered nurse will get them started.

The program provides helpful resources and tools throughout pregnancy and delivery, including:

  • A toll-free number so women can talk to a nurse coach 24/7 about their pregnancy. A nurse also may call them from time to time to see how they’re doing.
  • The “Mayo Clinic Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy” book, which shows changes to expect for mom and baby during the next nine months.
  • A screening to check health risk for depression or early delivery.
  • Other useful tools to help expecting moms, their doctor and their Future Moms nurse keep track of the pregnancy and help them make healthier choices.
  • Free phone calls with pharmacists, nutritionists and other specialists, if needed.
  • A booklet with tips to help keep expecting moms and their new babies safe and well.
  • Other helpful information on labor and delivery, including options and how to prepare.

Participants also will receive a welcome kit, which includes a welcome letter and a maternity care diary. At 28 weeks, participants will receive a follow-up letter and the Labor, Delivery & Beyond information booklet. After the baby is born, participants will receive a birth kit with a program completion letter and Nurture book with newborn information.

The Future Moms program is available at no cost to benefits-eligible faculty and staff covered on a Purdue health plan as well as spouses and dependents ages 18 through 25 covered on a Purdue health plan.
