Prenatal Services

A nurse practitioner, medical assistant, and financial screener provide quality care to pregnant women of all ages, ethnicities, and incomes. Labor and delivery at North Colorado Medical Center is assisted by physicians from North Colorado Family Medicine.

Any pregnant woman who is qualified for Presumptive Eligibility for Medicaid will be screened by a Registered Nurse. She will be educated on pregnancy issues, thoroughly assessed, and referred to community programs. Referrals also will be made to the prenatal outreach coordinator,  as well as to the WCDPHE social worker, for any additional resources or referrals needed in the community.

To enroll as a client in the Weld County Prenatal Program at the Health Department, women should call (970) 304-6420 ext. 2317. Women must have a positive pregnancy test from a physician or clinic. This can be scheduled at the Health Department.

If a woman does not have health insurance, the financial screener can assist her in applying for presumptive eligibility (PE), temporary financial assistance for the pregnancy. PE is the first step in an application for Medicaid or Emergency Medicaid.

In addition to self-referrals, clients in the Weld County Prenatal Program are accepted from the Weld County Department of Public Health and Environment, 1st Steps, the Department of Social Services, North Colorado Family Medicine, Planned Parenthood, and private physicians.

Prenatal Nutrition Classes
No-cost nutrition education classes will be offered that teach pregnant women about the importance of nutrition during their pregnancy. English and Spanish classes are offered Wednesdays at the Sunrise Monfort Family Clinic, and English classes are offered Thursdays at the Weld County Department of Public Health and Environment. Pregnant women will earn a car seat after completing the series of nutrition classes. They also will be given information about local agencies that educate and support women and their families before, during, and after pregnancy.
