BMS Prenatal and Early Childhood Wellcare

The goal of the BMS Prenatal and Early Childhood Wellcare Program is to identify and address needs and service access barriers in children as early as possible, helping to improve a child's cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development, ultimately increasing their chances of success in life.

I like that BMS has everything in onebuilding: the pediatricians, the WIC program, the OBGYN...it’s resourceful.”

-Dimond, she/her, 21 years old, pregnant mother, BMS patient

BMS’ Prenatal and Early Childhood Wellcare program offers health education, clinical services, services coordination, and encourages family involvement to ensure that you and your children receive the appropriate services and support you need.
