The North Carolina Baby Love Program was implemented in 1987 to reduce the
state’s high infant mortality rate by improving access to healthcare and the
service delivery system for low-income pregnant women and children. Services are
targeted to the Medicaid client but all pregnant and postpartum women are
eligible for these services.
Maternal Care Coordination
Program (MCC) is staffed by nurses,
social workers and paraprofessionals who help
pregnant women and new mothers work on concerns that
may affect the baby's health. This program can
provide assistance in applying for Medicaid and
health insurance coverage for other children,
referrals to community resources and agencies for
housing, school, transportation, child care etc.
No matter where you receive prenatal care, you can
sign up for the Maternity Care Coordination Program.
