Go Before You Show

An Early Prenatal Campaign For Babies

Our Mission

To affect social awareness and create long term change by making people aware of the fact they should see a doctor early in their pregnancy in order to help them have a healthy baby.

Objectives

  • To educate and encourage women who may be pregnant to see a doctor early in their pregnancy.
    • Make the idea seeing a doctor early engrained and automatic.
  • Additional benefits are communicated such as why it is important to see a doctor early, services that may be available and financial assistance pregnant women may be eligible for.

Just four simple steps to follow for a healthy pregnancy!

  1. Select a provider – If you have insurance, call a provider when you think you are pregnant. If you do not have insurance, you can get assistance to apply. There are free pregnancy testing centers in your area. Go to Nevada211.org to find a location closest to you.
  2. Get health insurance – Pregnant women and teens can get no cost or low cost prenatal health insurance. Here are some options that best fit your family needs: NevadaHealthLink.com, NV Medicaid – accessnevada.dwss.nv.gov or visit Nevada 211 for additional options.
  3. Apply for WIC (Women, Infants and Children) – A supplemental nutrition program for pregnancy, breastfeeding persons, postpartum, infants and young children. WIC helps birthing persons and young children eat well and stay healthy. For more information visit NevadaWIC.org
  4. Go to your doctor – If you need help finding a way to get to your doctors appointments, you can review the bus systems.  If you have Medicaid,  they can assist with non-medical transportation.
