The GEHA Maternity Program offers a maternity resource packet to our expectant mothers. This packet includes information on pregnancy and prenatal care as well as information about your maternity benefits.
If you like, we'll include in your packet a book by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists titled Your Pregnancy and Childbirth.
To order your packet on pregnancy and prenatal care, click Maternity Resource Packet order form.
In addition, if you have special concerns or questions about utilization of your maternity benefits, a GEHA maternity nurse is available to assist you. Call 800.821.6136 and ask for the Care Management Department to reach a Maternity Nurse Consultant.
