Kristi Wedmore
Program Coordinator

The Oregon MothersCare (OMC) Program has helped thousands of Lane County people access prenatal care early in their pregnancy. In Oregon, 1 in 5 pregnant people do not receive this care as soon as recommended, in the first three months of pregnancy. Early and complete prenatal care is very important for the good health of both pregnant person and baby.

Program Services

The OMC helps pregnant people and families learn about and access the services they need such as:

  • Help applying for the Oregon Health Plan (OHP benefits, adding your newborn, and renewing)
  • Help making their first prenatal care appointment
  • Information about the WIC program which gives them nutrition education and healthy food
  • Information about Perinatal Case Management (nurse home visiting) services
  • Education about pregnancy and childbirth
  • Other information and services available to them


Think You Might be Pregnant?

If you are pregnant, we can help you complete an Oregon Health Plan application and get you approved faster than if you applied on your own or through another community partner. OHP prioritizes all OMC clients and they are processed much more quickly. We provide educational materials, prenatal vitamins and help you find a doctor and make your first prenatal appointment.

We will assist you with a referral to WIC for nutritional education and assistance with vouchers for food necessary to have a health pregnancy and healthy baby. Information about other community resources is also available. Referral can also be made to our Family & child health nurses for Perinatal case management services/home visiting programs.
LCPH services are available regardless of age, race, color, sex, religion, national origin, physical or mental disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, and marital status. LCPH facilities are wheelchair accessible. LCPH materials are available upon request in alternative formats such as: large print, Braille and other languages.
