Resources for pregnant and postpartum people with a history of substance use
When I made my appointment I said, I'm pregnant, I'm an addict, can you take me? It was actually a big relief.Patient who received prenatal care at Dartmouth-Hitchcock
Early Connections Cellphone Program
We know transportation is a challenge for many. Using a phone or video conferencing can make getting your prenatal care easier.
If you do not have a cellphone, we can help with free smartphones and free data cards. With a smartphone, you can take advantage of telehealth options for your care. Using telehealth, you can stay connected to your health care team and other resources.
Call our helpline at 603-650-2602 to speak to a community health worker about the cellphone program.
Hepatitis C treatment
We ask all patients who seek care on the Birthing Pavilion at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center if they would like to take home free naloxone for themselves or someone in the community. Free naloxone is also available at the ambulatory obstetric clinic and at The Doorway.
