Our Program

Logansport Memorial Hospital’s Connect2Care Program is a free program for pregnant women in areas with little or no access to pregnancy care. You will be paired with a registered nurse who can provide you with support, advice, and information needed to have a healthy pregnancy, a healthy baby, and to be a great parent!

Part of this partnership also includes connecting you with one of the board-certified OB/GYNs at Logansport Memorial’s Women’s Health Center for regular checkups and for a safe delivery in our Family Birth Center.

Who we serve

It doesn’t matter how old you are or how far along you are, we are here to help pregnant women, or women planning to get pregnant, who:

  • Live in Cass, Carroll, White, or surrounding counties in north-central Indiana
  • Have any income level
  • Are first-time moms or having their fourth child

What’s included?

Women who are part of the Connect 2 Care Program will receive:

  • Scheduled checkups with a board-certified OB/GYN
  • Telehealth and/or home visits with a nurse navigator covering essential prenatal education tips
  • Assistance with finding community resources, such as WIC and SNAP
  • Breastfeeding education and resources
  • Support for your partner
  • Guided tour of Logansport Memorial’s Family Birth Center

Program benefits 

It’s hard to take care of a new baby and still take care of yourself, and the rest of your family. You don’t have to do it alone. Together, we can build better health for you and your baby.

Think of your nurse navigator as a personal coach and non-judgmental friend to help guide you through pregnancy to parenthood.

Pregnancy timeline

In addition to check-ups with your OB/GYN, you’ll meet with your nurse navigator at least four times throughout the course of your pregnancy, either in-person, in your home, or at a public meeting space. 

Between sessions, you can schedule additional check-ins with your nurse navigator via video chat or phone. Ask questions anytime, and get the answers you need between appointments. That’s why we’re here.
