Maternal/Child Health Home Care

Holy Cross Health offers a wide range of home care services for expectant mothers, new mothers and their newborns.

Some of these services might be covered by your insurance plan and others are provided on a fee-for-service basis. If you are interested in any of these services and cost is an issue, check with your insurer for coverage options. Financial arrangements with the hospital may be also available.

Maternal and Newborn Home Care
Holy Cross Home Care, a member of Trinity Health Home Services, offers home care for new moms and their newborns through a doctor’s order. Babies who are discharged from the NICU or Special Care Nursery often have continuing medical needs and may require skilled nursing assistance after they come home from Holy Cross Hospital or Holy Cross Germantown Hospital.

The Home Care program also provides post-delivery home check-ups to the newborns of moms who receive their prenatal and postnatal care through Holy Cross Health’s OB Clinics. And, board-certified lactation consultants are available for home consults after birth.

For more information about this service call 301-754-7754.

Mother/Baby Aides
Often women who are recovering from childbirth discover that they cannot do everything for themselves like they used to. Holy Cross Private Home Services, Corp., a licensed residential service agency (RSA), offers mother/baby aides to assist with hands-on baby care and household tasks including laundry, feedings, light housework and short-term care. You can schedule these services 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We recommend that you make a reservation prior to your delivery.

For more information, program fees or to schedule a mother/baby aide, call 301-754-7780.
