Maternity Management


Can I participate?

Employees and their spouses enrolled in Texas Health Aetna who are pregnant can participate in the Maternity Management program.

How do I participate?

There are multiple ways to get started.

  • Call Texas Health Aetna at 1-800-CRADLE-1 (1-800-272-3531), weekdays from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. C.T.
  • Log in to the Texas Health Aetna website at Under Stay Healthy, choose “Maternity Program” and complete a short survey. Participants can call Texas Health Aetna at 1-800-CRADLE-1 (1-800-272-3531) to speak with a Maternity Management nurse any time during your pregnancy or after your delivery. A Maternity Management nurse will also call you 3-4 weeks after you deliver to check in on you and your newborn.

To receive the $100 Be Healthy reward, participants must complete the survey prior to the 16th week of pregnancy and the post-partum call by the 4th week after the baby is born.
