Read about the experiences of women and families who have participated in the UPMC Health Plan Maternity Program.

“I had so many questions, and my coach was always there for me. She had the medical background to answer my questions, but she felt like a friend.”

- Amanda

“She was just there to help, and there was no charge. That was very appealing because I had a lot of questions.

We talked about a birth plan and what my thoughts were about an ideal delivery experience. She was informative, helpful, and relaxed. She gave me my options and said that I should make my own decisions. I think it’s been great. It was such a relief to be able to talk to someone. I have all these questions and read everything online, but it’s good to get information I can trust.”
