Start Smart for Your Baby® Program
Welcome to Start Smart for Your Baby®! After notifying Superior that you are pregnant and filling out our Notification of Pregnancy (NOP) form (PDF) you will be enrolled in Superior’s Start Smart for Your Baby program. If any additional information is required a care team member will reach out. Members can contact their care team directly by using Wellframe, a free mobile care app.
Start Smart for Your Baby® provides extra benefits and support for Superior members during and after your pregnancy, including:
- Information about pregnancy and newborn care.
- Community resources to help you get the things you need during your pregnancy and after your baby is born. This includes food, cribs, diapers, housing and clothing.
- Breastfeeding support and resources.
- Professional medical staff who work with you and your doctor and nurses if you have a more difficult pregnancy.
- Resources if you are feeling down during or after your pregnancy.
- Methods to help you quit smoking, alcohol or drugs.
- Help choosing a doctor and hospital for your delivery.
- Assistance keeping up with your prenatal appointments.
- Transportation support to and from your doctor visits (where available).
Superior wants you to have the best care possible. That’s why we offer Baby Showers at no cost. Led by a Start Smart care team member, these educational classes teach you how to care for yourself and your baby during your pregnancy. You can also learn about the many benefits available to you during pregnancy like dental exams and physicals. Plus you will learn about additional community resources to help during your pregnancy such as car seat safety and Women, Infants, and Children (WIC). WIC is a special supplemental nutrition program.
This program offers educational materials and supplies for members. Pregnant members can receive a diaper bag, starter supply of diapers, and educational materials by:
- Completing a Notification of Pregnancy (NOP) form, and;
- Attending an educational baby shower hosted by Superior.
Members also have access to a mobile app which offers pregnancy-related support and information according to their pregnancy stage. Pregnant women can earn this Value-added Service* one time per pregnancy.
