    Prenatal Care Assistance Program

    Offered through South Nassau Family Medicine in Oceanside, the Prenatal Care Assistance Program (PCAP) is a specially-funded program designed to help women have a healthy pregnancy and healthy babies. South Nassau has been accredited to provide this full-service multi-disciplinary prenatal care program through the NYS Department of Health.

    Prenatal care is critically important because it helps mothers have healthy babies by reducing the risk of low birth-weight and loss. Low birth-weight babies are more likely to have medical problems such as difficulty breathing.

    Through PCAP, you can receive the quality prenatal care to meet you and your baby's needs. Here's how:

    • During your initial visit, our coordinator will see if you are eligible for PCAP. You'll answer some questions about your medical history, be screened for nutrition and social services, and also receive a complete physical. You'll also meet with our social worker who can refer you to outside services you may need.
    • You'll continue to receive quality medical care and education. From doctors' visits and testing for birth defects, glucose and sonograms, to nutritional counseling and prenatal classes for you and your family, this program is designed to provide you with the services and education needed to help you have a healthy baby.
