Clinical Services: Prenatal
Prenatal services are provided by nurse practitioners and OB/GYN physicians. These services include a physical examination, lab tests, diagnostic tests such as ultrasounds, nursing and nutrition counseling, education, delivery by contracted physicians and postpartum visits.
The Todd County Health Department provides prenatal services to residents of Todd County who do not qualify for other medical assistance. The client must provide a denial letter from Medicaid and must have an income that is at or below 185% of the poverty level. The clients are referred to local OB/GYN’s for their prenatal examinations. The clients visit the health department clinic monthly for WIC, lab services, and prenatal counseling. The health department works closely with the local OB/GYN offices to coordinate care of these clients.
