From all of us at Banner – University Family Care/ALTCS (B – UFC/ALTCS), congratulations on your pregnancy!

This is an exciting time for you and your family. We want you and your baby to be as healthy as possible. Your baby is more likely to be healthy if you take care of yourself during your pregnancy. Please call our Customer Care Center.

We are available Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. We can help you find a doctor, make an appointment, and arrange a ride to your medical appointments. We can also refer you to a member of our Maternal Child Health Department staff if you have questions or would like a nurse care manager to follow up with you throughout your pregnancy.

A healthy pregnancy starts with you...

The best things you can do to help you take care of you and your baby during your pregnancy are:

  • Seeing your doctor as soon as you think you are pregnant.
  • Going to all of your medical appointments.
  • Taking a prenatal vitamin every day.
  • Getting enough rest.
  • Eating healthy and exercising.
  • Taking care of your mental health.
  • Taking medications your doctor says are safe to take while pregnant.
  • Don’t smoke, drink alcohol, or take any drugs unless prescribed by your doctor.
